WORKproCA Loudspeakers Deliver Animal Magic At Zoom Torino
Zoom Torino is a zoological and family entertainment park in the north-west of Italy, dedicated to faithfully reproducing the habitat of exotic creatures for the benefit of both visitors and the animals alike. Yamaha amplifiers and WORKproCA loudspeakers have been installed in the visitor areas to help maximise the park’s educational value.
Visitor education and conservation go hand in hand at the centre. Making the enclosures like the various animals’ native environments ensures that they are happy, but also maximises the interest and learning opportunities for onlooking humans. Enhancing the visitor experience in several areas are ambient recordings of the real locations and commentary, delivered by WORKproCA NEO 40i loudspeakers and Yamaha XH200 distribution power amplifiers.
“We chose the NEO 40i loudspeakers and XH200 amplifiers because we needed equipment that would be reliable, produce high quality sound and had a good price/quality ratio,” says Andrea Lobietti of Bologna-based Rokepo Srl, who designed the system.
“The client is very happy with the system, which provides visitors with the soundscape and information to gain a greater understanding of the animals, their environment and the conservations issues involved.”
She continues, “We do many projects where it is important that, once installed, the client will not need to request future assistance with the equipment. Both Yamaha and WORKproCA products provide that reliability and we are planning to use more of both in future projects.”
