  16. 16. COLUMBUS ZOO
  17. 17. COLUMBUS ZOOTHE CHALLENGEThe Columbus Zoo is one of the world’s most well-known and well-respected zoos. And theirsound system needed to match the quality of the rest of the zoo experience, as well as con-tribute to visitors’ experience of seeing the animals in their natural environments—while pro-viding sound coverage in several separate areas.THE SOLUTIONTo ensure excellent sound clarity, adequate coverage and outdoor durability, a team from Mu-zak and Bose designed a system of Bose products that incorporated in-ground loudspeakersto reproduce sound over a wide listening area. In addition, a proprietary multi-chamber baseenclosure inside each cabinet delivers full sound without distortion.The sound system design also needed to accommodate different music, sound programmingand volume levels for each exhibit area, the walkways, and the entrance and common areas.The Bose and Muzak team chose the innovative Bose ControlSpace® programming system, sothat zoo staff could make adjustments quickly and easily as music and environmental soundschanged throughout the day.THE RESULT“People say it has really changed the experience for the better,” said Manny Gonzalez, chiefoperating officer for the Columbus Zoo. “We want our guests to have a more active experi-ence.

All zones are controlled by touch screen displays withineach area. The pool area, as an example, includes 55 Bose® ground speakers to provide at-mospheric audio and sound buffering. The event center’s multi-purpose needs were met witha DSP-controlled, high-quality audio system, touch panel controls and a projection screenwith full audio/visual capabilities. Best of all, the entire system can be monitored and oper-ated remotely.THE RESULT“Through shifting deadlines and a number of other design and construction crews, Muzak’sprofessional staff tackled all challenges presented by this large and complex project.” RichardBrown, A/V and Production Manager.
