Associated Television International, commonly referred to as the Associated Television or simply ATI, is a media company that has been in business for over 30 years as a full-service production and distribution entity that is not only one of the top ten independent syndicators of original programming in the United States, but also is a leading distributor in international markets and, together with its video partners, has sold millions of DVDs.

Associated Television International has a presence in every aspect of media:

Operating out of their 66,000 sq. ft.[1] building in Los Angeles, Associated Television has their own sound stage and full service production and post-production facilities. In 2011, ATI produced over 300 hours of programming, all of which it develops in-house, self-funds and distributes. The company's successful syndication strategy has seen it spawn a raft of programming brands that return year-on-year to broadcast television, but also perform at retail through DVD sales and are strong in international markets.

One of the primary goals set by ATI’s president, David McKenzie, is for the company to produce socially conscious programming that both uplifts and educates. In 2008 the company was nominated for two Emmy Awards and won for its CW special “America’s Invisible Children” hosted by Joan Lunden.[2] ATI was nominated for another Emmy award for the special “On the Edge: The Poverty Crisis in Africa”[3] in which a group of celebrities visit Africa, lending a helping hand to those in need. Associated Television also produced a special, “Breaking the Silence” which sent celebrities to Vietnam to assist in a mission for the hearing impaired in that country.

Along with 7 Emmy nominations within the last 5 years, Associated Television International has won many other industry honors, and continues to be an innovator and premiere producer of non-fiction television programming.
