Advanced Video Technology Solutions Ltd. (AVT Solutions Ltd.) was formed as a consulting company in the area of Digital Information Display Technology by Engineering graduate Chris Cavalieri and faculty member Adrian Kitai, both of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Following an initial display project on an electronic outdoor billboard for a US-based client, the team has attracted several clients and partners looking to develop unique ideas of their own. This has laid the foundation to what AVT is today, and is now supporting our current venture to launch our very own innovative product, our Obsidian™ Premium Ambient-Light Rejecting (ALR) Front Projection Screen, to redefine the boundaries and limitations in commercial, retail and public digital signage & displays. AVT is driven by irrefutable passion for innovation, impact and change. Our innovative in-house display software is supported by Marc Bender PhD, a McMaster University graduate from Computer Science who worked for AVT Solutions part time during its first years, and is now employed full time as of August 2018.
