A hat tip to sponsors …

February 4, 2011 by Dave Haynes

The support of sponsors makes this blog continue to be viable, and to grow.

We have two major sponsors:


Chief is a division of Milestone AV Technologies, a Duchossois Group Company. With over 30 years of proven product and service excellence, hundreds of product awards and patented designs, Chief is globally recognized as an AV industry leader. The company designs state-of-the-art mount and rack solutions that complement the technology they support. Chief is committed to delivering high-quality products that are easy to install and maintain.

Its family of brands includes Chief, Sanus Systems, iC, Vuepoint, Simplicity and Raxxess. Combined, these brands help make Milestone the largest AV furniture and mount company across the globe.


AMX is marketing its Inspired digital signage solutions, which includes software and hardware.

AMX hardware and software solutions simplify the implementation, maintenance, and use of technology to create effective environments. With the increasing number of technologies and operating platforms at work and home, AMX solves the complexity of managing this technology with reliable, consistent and scalable systems. The company’s  award-winning products span control and automation, system-wide switching and audio/video signal distribution, digital signage and technology management. They are implemented worldwide in conference rooms, homes, classrooms, network operation / command centers, hotels, entertainment venues, broadcast facilities, among others.

AMX was founded in 1982 and is a member of the Duchossois Group of Companies.

Sixteen:Nine is also made possible by the WordPress hosting of  ITES Media, an interactive digital media solutions company in Montreal. Founder Richard Fortin graciously offered to save me from the grumpy Russian somewhere in NYC who was hosting me on some shared rackspace.

Of course, pressDOOH and The Preset Group are also sponsors – though they never seem to pay.
