Advanced Video Technology Solutions Ltd. (AVT Solutions Ltd.), formerly 8481059 Canada Corporation and operating under the name “FlipVision”, was first formed in April 2013 under the umbrella of the XCEEi Masters of Engineering Entrepreneurship & Innovation program incubated at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. The team consisted of three students and one professor, Dr. Adrian Kitai of McMaster University, working on a completely unique, highly-ambitious, electromechanical billboard technology. Throughout this project the team had found their passion for innovation and realized their potential in being capable of taking on new, unique, even seemingly impossible ideas and turning them into real, practical, commercially viable product concepts. Upon completion & graduation, Chris Cavalieri, co-founder of AVT, remained to work with Adrian to help accelerate another project of his which he had been researching for years previously under the company Seamless Display Systems, joint with McMaster University, which was soon consolidated into AVT. Through the ongoing development of this project, the team had attracted several clients and partners looking to develop unique ideas of their own which has laid the foundation of what AVT is today. AVT is driven by irrefutable passion for innovation, impact and change.
