Matrix is delighted to announce the latest addition to our ever growing and technologically advancing equipment inventory…a state-of-the-art PPU, custom built in-house by our technical team. Previous generations of such a system would be housed in numerous bulky flight cases. Our system is beautifully compact making it perfect for overcoming challenging space issues on the truck, carnet issues, and difficult load-ins and has a small Operating footprint.
Such a clever, compact, versatile PPU system would be ideal for the corporate and music sectors.
Our technical department comments, “designing and building such a powerful PPU has been great to work on. We believe we have created a PPU that far surpasses a number of similar products available to the live events sector. Can’t wait to get it on the road and working it’s magic on some of our upcoming projects”.
