PA People on a Tiger Trek

Australia: The PA People’s Installed Systems team has supplied the A/V solutions at Taronga Zoo’s new Sumatran tiger experience, Tiger Trek. The A/V systems integrator worked with Zauner Construction, the building firm charged with constructing the Tiger Trek attraction, which has tripled the size of the Sydney zoo’s tiger habitat.

Visitors enter Tiger Trek via an outdoor queuing area equipped with four screens that display information about the tigers and have been mounted in custom enclosures to protect them from the elements. Voice announcements are broadcast through Bose Freespace 360 outdoor mushroom speakers.

Once inside the building, guests are met with a simulated aeroplane interior with an 82-inch Samsung screen forming the cockpit and 19 32-inch screens from the Korean manufacturer playing the part of the aeroplane windows. A further three 32-inch screens are installed as overhead displays. Audio in this area is delivered by JBL Control 14C/T speakers mounted in the ceiling and control of aeroplane experience content, including soundscape, video, lighting and door control, is provided by a Medialon Show Controller system.

When the simulated flight has concluded, visitors make their way into the Sumatran Village section of the exhibit. This area is also equipped with JBL Control ceiling speakers that replicate the sounds of the village, including a ranger’s outpost, and leads into the jungle section. The jungle is where the Sumatran tigers are found, along with Shure wireless microphone systems and further JBL speakers that facilitate zookeeper talks.

Midway through Tiger Trek, a 12-screen videowall hosts a presentation about the Sumatran tiger habitat, as well as discussions around conservation. Continuing on, an outside viewing area allows visitors to get even closer to the big cats and makes use of another Shure wireless microphone system to accommodate presentations.

The final stop on Tiger Trek is the exit building, dressed up as a supermarket. BGM is delivered by more JBL Control 14C/T ceiling speakers.

Throughout the exhibit, The PA People also installed input and output boxes, amplifiers and message servers from Biamp’s Vocia range, as well as Ampetronic hearing loop drivers, BSS Blu-100 DSP systems, Dataton Watchout Vision servers and a Crestron Control solution. The A/V setup not only simulates the experience of travelling to Sumatra to see the tigers in their ‘natural habitat’, but has also been integrated with the site-wide evacuation system that overrides the soundscape in the event of an emergency.
