When the owners of the International Foods store Ozmen decided to expand operations with a new store in the heart of The Northern Power House they called upon AV specialist integrators Definition Audio Visual to provide a comprehensive multi-zone audio solution for their new store.

Ozmen, the international kings of cuisine, specialise in foods from around the world. Their stores offer a unique selection of culinary delights, which includes everything from Australian wines and African coffee beans to British teas and Indian spices, both on line and in-store. The new store expands the company’s ability to supply to local customers, a stunning variety of foods including Kurdish, Greek, Asian Kosovan, Iranian, Polish, Romanian and Afro Caribbean.

To further enhance the new Ozmen store’s singular and eclectic ambience with its full flavours, rich aromas and diverse essences, a multi-zone audio solution was chosen to further enrich the in-store shopping experience.

Mark Blackwell, managing director, Definition Audio Visual told us “At Ozmen we provided a three-zone audio solution. We installed a number of Cloud CS6B wall mount speakers in black in the food and checkout areas and additional speakers in the store’s entrance area. More CS6B surface wall mount speakers are installed in the warehouse area to the rear of the store, effectively creating three separate audio zones”.

Cloud PM-4 four zone paging microphones, strategically located in warehouse, food court and checkout areas, allow paging announcements to be made to any one or all three of the separate audio zones.

The Cloud loudspeakers, tapped at 32W maximum per speaker, are connected to Cloud CXV225 100V amplifiers, each delivering up to 250W output at 100V per channel. Audio sources are connected to a Cloud Z4 MK4 four-zone mixer.

“Cloud’s paging system allows us to daisy-chain paging microphone stations really easily. Using Cate 5e screened cable between stations almost any number of paging microphones can be installed throughout the store and warehouse storage area. This also means we can expand the system further in the future, if this becomes a requirement”, adds Mark Blackwell.
