New ITV Website

We have moved to a more robust website that gives us more features and updating powers. The new website url is: From now on, everything related to ITV will be posted to the new site.

Resources - Links to our database website has been difficult to find on our old site. We have provided quicker access to our Audio/Visual Bid and Contact databases through our navigation menu.

Training -A new comprehensive calendar of upcoming Workshop opportunities and a new weekly post we're calling "Tip of the Week."

Video Awards - Quickly finding any information about Video Awards on our old site was clunky and had technical issues. Under the Video Awards menu, you'll find an easy-to-navigate structure taking you to the right information as quickly as possible.

Special Productions - ITV doesn't do just Video Awards, training, and TV studio support/management, we also produce a lot of various videos and film live events for the district and Polk County community. The new site will provide easy access for others to view some of our past productions.
