In the rapidly evolving educational, healthcare, commercial and manufacturing environments, the need for efficient and robust communication systems is paramount. Whether it’s for emergency protocols, or improving morale, a digital Public Address (PA) system can be a game-changer. Carina:PA is a next-generation solution that allows you to upload and schedule custom audio for various events.

Emergency Protocols

Traditional analog PA systems may require a designated staff member to read a pre-approved script multiple times during an emergency, such as a bomb threat. This could lead to potential risks. With Carina:PA, a recorded script can be set up to repeat multiple times, ensuring safe evacuation without human intervention.

Scheduled Events

Playing the school fight song every Friday or having line supervisors make the same announcements repeatedly can be cumbersome with an old analog system. Carina:PA streamlines this by allowing you to upload and schedule pre-recorded audio to play at specific dates and times.
