UK - Bluesound Professional has announced an installation of its B400S 4-zone network music player across online car retailer’s customer centres.
The challenge was to create an environment where sound would enhance the ambiance of every customer centre, with uniform controllability and compliance with the legal requirements of the PRS music licence.
London-based integrator Nucleus AV turned to Bluesound Professional for a scalable audio solution.
The installation team worked closely with Cazoo to create a bespoke system that was both practical (in some locations, Nucleus AV would be retrofitting existing loudspeakers and amplifiers) and future-proof.
Nucleus AV, working with Bluesound Professional sub-distributor OneAV, outfitted each Cazoo customer centre with a single Bluesound Professional B400S 4-zone network music player. This commercial grade network player, designed for rack-mounting, has native commercial music service support built-in, allowing all content curation and provision to be handled from the cloud.
“Cazoo wanted players that were built for a commercial environment, and would fit with future expansion plans,” says Bluesound Professional product manager, Graeme Harrison.
“The B400S also offers the freedom to select a different commercial streaming service if that’s ever required. Users can simply log out of one and log on to another. It was always Cazoo’s intention to control all of their branches from head office, meaning branches had no system control. They figured they'd have to write specific software, but we were able to help them with a utility that allows them to control devices across subnets,” explains Harrison.
