CORONA, Calif., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in automated retailing systems, self-service stores and kiosks, has retained One LLP, one of the nation's leading patent litigation law firms, to begin enforcing AVT's patent on the wireless control of multiple vending machines.
AVT's patent, which has already been successfully upheld in an appeals court decision, has been forecast to become a major revenue driver within the next 24-months and beyond.
One LLP has successfully handled complex patent litigations for some of the largest corporations and organizations in the United States, including Blockbuster, Conexant, Meade Instruments, and the U.S. Navy.
AVT spent years developing software to enhance the consumer experience in an automated retailing and vending environment. The company developed a patent on the wireless management of these systems, so that owners or operators can view reports and control the units remotely.
Wireless control of machines is now built into virtually every modern automated retailing and vending system, which provides AVT with licensing opportunities on a grand scale.
Not only are there hundreds of thousands of these types of machines already in the field, but there are many more to come. A 2011 Frost & Sullivan research study published by Intel estimated global shipments of intelligent vending machines will grow at a 49% compound annual growth rate to 2016. Frost & Sullivan expects the total number of intelligent machines to reach 2 million by 2016, a clear indication that this market will continue to grow, and provide AVT with a rich source of revenues for years to come.
