How One University Upgraded the Audio Experience at Athletic Events Indoors and Out

Matt H Ill

Matt Hill’s affiliation with the University of Northwestern in St. Paul, Minn., runs deep. He played football, ran track and cross country, and wrestled while a student at the school, then returned as a track and field coach and sports information director. That was a quarter-century ago, and within a year inside the administrative offices at Northwestern, he was promoted to athletic director. To say Hill has a personal stake in the quality of the experience for current Eagles athletes and fans would be an understatement. It had been decades since the UNW gym’s audio system had last seen an upgrade when Hill chose to modernize with Biamp. Based on that success, he brought the Beaverton, Ore.-based company back last summer to revamp the school’s outdoor venues, as well. Hill explains why Northwestern chose to blanket its entire athletic campus with Biamp-driven sound — even in some atypical locations.
