A Polish electronics manufacturer specialises in the production of communication equipment. The company is looking for distributors for the Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) system it developed. In emergency situations, the system is an effective information tool and allows one to manage the evacuation process. When there is no crisis, one can use it to broadcast advertisements or play music. The main advantages of the system are its scalability and low energy consumption.



A company from northwestern Poland operates in the electronics sector and specialises in the production of communication equipment. In their professional activities, they combine engineering knowledge with interest in acoustics and concern for public safety and security. The firm is also active in the local community, participates in various scientific projects and educational initiatives.

The firm has developed and is offering its own Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) system. Such systems are an essential feature of all modern public buildings. In regular (non-emergency) situations, they are used for playing music and broadcasting advertisements. In crises, they allow informing about the danger and effectively control the evacuation process. The offered system consists of:
- master control unit with a microphone, a built-in speaker and LCD screen;
- call station with programmable buttons and microphone (either push-to-talk or one on a gooseneck stem);
- intercoms;
- amplifiers;
- fibre optic module;
- speakers;
- and a power supply unit.
The whole system is scalable and constructed so that a person in charge of the operation (e.g. firefighter, policeman) can connect and use his/her own microphone. The system is certified and conforms with the norm DIN EN 54-16:2008.

The firm is interested in broadening and diversifying its client base. Therefore, they are looking for distributors that would help them enter new markets. The role of a partner will be to promote and distribute the solution through his channels, install it and provide technical support to the local clients. The firm will provide partners with the solution (including all the necessary devices), teach how to install and use it. If required by a client, the firm will also customise it.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
- scalability - the offered PAVA system is suitable for both simple and the most complex emergency scenarios, that require the simultaneous transmission of multiple audio streams using high-speed fibre optic infrastructure. The construction of the system allows for adding new elements and expanding its functionalities. - high energy efficiency - all the electronic circuit and the system as a whole are designed and constructed so that energy consumption is minimalised and no additional cooling system is required. The system maintains all its functionalities even when powered using batteries. - low operating costs, thanks to low energy consumption. - in contrast to larger systems which require multi-channel amplifiers for independent sound control, the offered PAVA system enables configuration of the system for both cases as well as operation in mixed mode. - experienced and highly-qualified personnel that specialises in audio systems and public safety and security requirements.
