We Planted a Tree

Now prospering happily on the grounds of AVID HQ in Middletown, RI, we planted a young red maple tree to signify respect to our roots, our growing team, as well as our dedication to sustainability and making a positive impact on our community.


We Celebrated Another Year as an Employee-Owned Company

Since 2017, AVID Products has been 100% employee-owned, a characteristic that drives everything we do. From our partners to our customers to each other, we treat everyone as an important part of the AVID team.


We Received Awards for Our Audio Solutions

After receiving ISTE Best of Show Honors in 2020, both our AE-36 and AE-55 headsets went on to win Tech & Learning’s Awards of Excellence for Remote Learning in 2021. While our newly developed AE-75 received a winning badge for Tech & Learning’s Awards of Excellence for Back to School.


We Developed a New Headset, the AE-75

AVID supports the learning journey with audio solutions for students of all ages. This year, AVID introduced the AE-75 headset, the perfect device for high school and college students laden with all the features that take the learning experience to the next level. Learn more about the AE-75


We Put a Spotlight on Wellness

During National Wellness Month, we took some time to focus on well-being and a few of our employee-owners gave us a look at ways audio promotes their wellness goals. We also took part in a Workplace Wellness Experiment with our friends at FocusCalm. Read more about our experience


We Welcomed a New Team Member

The AVID team grew with the addition of Justin Kahle as a Sales Executive who focuses on our learning product portfolio and partners. Welcome Justin!


We Voted in a New ESOP Communications Committee Chairperson

Part of being an employee-owner is staying educated on the ins and outs of what it means to be an ESOP. This year, we voted in a new ESOP Communications Committee Chairperson, Jacklyn Almeida and two new members, Liz Woodard and Justin Kahle. The committee is tasked with keeping up to date on ESOP news and informing the rest of the AVID team throughout the year.


We Continued Our Digital Transformation

Working closely with our partner Infused Innovations, AVID continued on our digital transformation journey, integrating the newest digital tools and processes into our day to day. Listen to an interview about our experience with AVID President & CEO, Tom Finn, on the Digitally Transformed podcast


We Helped Connect Millions of Students and Educators Across the World

As schools across the world continue to adjust to new classroom guidelines, online curriculums and hybrid learning models, AVID continues to support connection, collaboration and communication with accessible audio devices developed for learning.
