AVT partnered with Campus Insiders, a Digital Media Company joinlty owned by IMG College and Silver Chalice in creating The Patriot League Network.  PLN, which debuted in late August will provide free live coverage of nearly 250 games during the fall sports season alone.  AVT helped present at a league wide training course held at Lehigh University.  Each Patriot League school was represented at the day long Video Boot Camp where members were briefed on how to set up and use the equipment as well as understand the concepts behind the online streaming platform. 

"The Patriot League has been working with AVT since 2006 when we launched our initial live event digital programming.  They have provided us with outstanding insight into the equipment on the market, trends in the industry, and worked within our budget.  In addition, AVT coninues to supply the best available equipment and support.' said Richard Wanninger, Patriot League Senior Associate Director for External Relations.  "The VidCaster has allowed the Patriot League to provide its 10 full members with an outstanding tool to produce games in high-definition as well as enhance other components of the production.  We have a great deal of confidence in their knowledge and support services, and would not hesitate to continue to recommend AVT to others as they prepare for their own digital programming."
