Mr. Butts Chairman of Honor Valor Courage Corporation has a very deep history in the development of Broadcasting and Television
Mr. Butts developed Digital Media Broadcasting Corporation into the first fiber Television Broadcasting Company. Delivering full televised sports over a fiber backbone. This was done with Lockheed Martin, SAVVIS Communications and Edge Technologies. The engineers from all three companies said it could not be done.

SAVIS engineers provided fiber engineering and head end connectivity and transport from their Weehawken, NJ data port. Edge Technologies provided the software integration and DMBC provided the broadcasting technology and uplinks. The Company began on the project on January 4, 2008, and did its first live broadcast on March 4, 2008, at the Jefferson Cup Soccer matches in Richmond VA. Proving Mr. Butts’ theory that you can change “situations, conditions and environments, but you can’t change people” and “you can’t operate in opposite of your most dominate thought”.
