All the audio you need to run a restaurant, courtroom, school, house of
worship - you name it - neatly delivered in one box.
Until now, you needed a rack full of equipment to address the audio
needs of just about any public facility - restaurants, court rooms,
retail stores, schools and universities, liturgical Churches...
With pêma, though, it's as simple as installing a two rack-space
box. Pêma handles it all. Whatever you need, pêma's got it.
And it's got it for a LOT less than it's costing you now.
There's never been anything like pêma for ease of install and for
reliability after the sale. Just think of the time you'll save on
installs and service calls.
