Niles helps Navaho earn its spurs

South Africa:

Navaho Spur, part of a South African chain of franchised steakhouses in the Brackenfell suburb of Cape Town, has installed an Auriel multi-room audio system from Niles. The stage and live sound system allows its customers to play their favourite songs on command in only their section of the restaurant.

‘Our client saw an opportunity to offer his customers something new and fun and a bit different from other local restaurants,’ explained Johann Mouton of Cape Town technology integration firm AudioVisual Developments. ‘One thing the client made clear was that he wanted instant, complete control over the entire audio system, with the ability to play different music in different areas, including the live microphones. I knew with the Niles Auriel system we could provide the zoned system that he wanted, and also tie in live sound equipment for the fully interactive effect.’

The fitted Niles Auriel system provides full control over six audio zones, a dozen in-ceiling speakers, multiple content sources and a live sound system. Access to the audio system is available through a mobile app and wall-mounted touchscreen.

‘The multi-zone control was very important,’ Mr Mouton added, ‘because the restaurant has front and back areas, and the owner wanted to be able to separate the front area from the live music, which is in the back. This way, guests who come in for a quick bite or drink in a traditional Spur environment aren’t forced to take part in a live music performance but can easily walk back if they choose. The audio zones basically create completely different environments in different parts of the restaurant.’

AudioVisual Developments worked with Elan Systems South Africa on the project and a further two restaurants are planned to be installed with the Niles system over the next year.
