Biamp optimises BYOD solutions for high-flying Thunderbird students

Biamp Modena bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solutions upgrade 140 classrooms, lecture halls, and collaboration pods for Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University (ASU)

Biamp has outfitted 140 classrooms, lecture halls, and collaboration pods at the world-renowned Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University (ASU) within its downtown Phoenix, Arizona, campus. The equipment includes audiovisual technologies designed to optimise the learning experience for in-person, remote, and hybrid scenarios.

Thunderbird is now utilising the Biamp Modena bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution for its multiple classrooms and learning spaces. Each space also includes Parlé Beamtracking microphones to capture speakers’ voices around each respective room, even when attendees move as they talk.

HT Consultants and Tech Providers also installed Biamp Desono loudspeakers, along with Biamp Tesira DSP technology that works behind the scenes to process and route all digital signals to the proper destinations.

“With the BYOD capabilities of Modena, instructors, students, and guest speakers can all join the same session with whatever devices they’re most comfortable using,” said Mike Grasso, director of digital initiatives, AV and Media, Thunderbird.

“By combining Modena’s ease-of-use and flexibility with the outstanding voice pickup capabilities of the Parlé microphones, we’ve created optimal teaching and learning environments for all involved at Thunderbird, whether in-person, remote, or hybrid.”

Joe Andrulis, executive vice president of corporate development, Biamp, added: “Thunderbird needed an upgraded technology infrastructure in order to embrace an innovative approach to education and, through Biamp, instructors and students now have technology that provides an extraordinary experience no matter where participants are located.”

Thunderbird School of Global Management at ASU was ranked number one in the world for international trade by QS International Trade Rankings 2023, scoring 100 out of a possible 100 points.
