As a technology journalist, Megan A. Dutta puts her passion for the audiovisual industry on each and every page, whether print or digital. Dutta is currently the director of emerging markets at LAVNCH and editor-in-chief of LAVNCH [CODE] where she explores new technologies like extended reality (XR), experiential advertising, projection mapping, and more.
Sixteen:Nine has been doing daily news and insights about the digital signage industry, globally, since Feb. 2006. Started as a blog, the online publication has since produced some 8,500 articles about the industry, technology and people. There is also a companion podcast with hundreds of long-form interviews. Sixteen:Nine is known as the industry's BS filter - a content resource driven by an effort to explain developments and advances in plain language and with context. The publication does not accept paid editorial, ignores roughly 9/10 press release sent its way, and never simply copies and pastes news from vendors and suppliers (something unfortunately common in pro AV and beyond).
Sixteen:Nine was started and still edited by industry veteran Dave Haynes. In 2021, the publication was acquired by the Florida software firm Spectrio. Haynes remains its editor and primary content producer, however, operating out of a home office in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Currently in my role as Technical Advisor for AVIXA I lead a technical editing role for the next edition of the CTS-D Exam Guide and our extensive technical training content (both new and existing).
My interests span the broad spectrum of AV/IT technologies and systems our industry provides. Prior to taking a staff role with AVIXA I worked supporting AV/IT solutions for both public and private education as a "Technology Manager" (roles including repair, installation, design and project management) as well as a longtime volunteer for AVIXA education and standards programs.
I’m a has-been geek turned manager, turned executive, turned (hopefully) into leader. I love technology and even more I love people. So what I find really interesting is the intersection of people and technology…and in so many ways, that’s my definition of AV.
