Avit, Inc. (株式会社エイビット) was started by former members of Technos Japan's Niigata office. [1] It was originally established on December 27, 1995, as Audio Video Interactive Technology (株式会社オーディオ・ビデオ・インターラクティブ・テクノロジー) and was renamed Avit on March 21, 1996. [2]

On February 1, 1999, Avit's main office moved from Niigata City to Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, while consumer game development continued in Niigata City. On December 5, 2002, the Niigata City office broke away and became Avit-Niigata. [3] Since then, Avit has been primarily involved with pachinko and pachislot development.

A US company — Audio Video Interactive Technology, Inc. — was incorporated in California on September 28, 1994, over a year before the Japanese company was established. Keiichi Iwamoto was the president.
