AV Week Comes To Biamp Systems

BEAVERTON, OR—Biamp Systems hosted a class of engineering students from the University of Portland on October 23, during AV Week.

“We are very passionate about promoting the innovations in the AV industry among students,” said Matt Kotvis, lead DSP engineer, Biamp Systems. “The worlds of AV and information technology are merging, so we think it’s important to expose students to this convergence and spark their creative design skills.”

By hosting the engineering students this year, Biamp Systems also hoped to inspire them to consider a career in the AV industry. The students attended presentations on realworld engineering applications by Biamp’s engineering staff, and had the opportunity to network with engineering professionals and tour Biamp’s manufacturing facility.

Since Biamp’s initial AV Week participation in 2007, Biamp has educated students on career opportunities in the AV industry and worked side-byside with college career centers to boost awareness of opportunities for graduates.

The AVNetwork staff are storytellers focused on the professional audiovisual and technology industry. Their mission is to keep readers up-to-date on the latest AV/IT industry and product news, emerging trends, and inspiring installations.
