Peavey revolutionized the audio industry in 1993 with MediaMatrix, the world's first digitally configured and controlled distributed audio system. Today, MediaMatrix remains the most scalable, flexible and specified digital audio distribution and processing system, boasting more than 10,000 installations worldwide.
MediaMatrix gives audio system operators the tools to configure and reconfigure networked audio systems in the world's most demanding environments on demand, whether from a computer, touch screen or even an iOS device. MediaMatrix serves the high-end audio market with the most powerful digital signal processors, software and user-control tools for creating the world's most elaborate audio systems via computer.
As sophisticated as it is user-friendly, audio engineers use MediaMatrix to design systems on screen, then bring the sound design to life with a quick click of the mouse. Multiple audio configurations and zones are saved as presets and recalled at a moment's notice without physically rewiring or switching out components, and every component in the house can be tweaked right from the mouse pad. It's no wonder why MediaMatrix is the leading platform for the audio, communications and integrated media industries and the established standard in configurable audio systems throughout the world.
Since its debut installation in the U.S. Capitol in 1994, MediaMatrix can be found in more than 10,000 permanent installations in stadiums, casinos, government and transportation facilities, theme parks and other large venues around the world, including: the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games; the Parliament Houses of China, New Zealand, Russia and Germany; Beijing, Hong Kong and Heathrow international airports; the Bellagio, Mirage, Mandalay Bay and MGM Grand in Las Vegas; Six Flags theme parks; and many more.

Legendary for its powerful and reliable touring-class sound reinforcement tools, Crest Audio is a global leader in designing and manufacturing power amplifiers for live, commercial and networked sound systems, and a complete line of mixing consoles for live and installed audio markets.
Crest Audio burst onto the audio scene in the late 1970s with the singular goal of advancing live sound through bulletproof engineering. The low noise, high headroom and live sound features Crest Audio was able to pack into its mixers set a new industry standard, and they immediately became indispensable on the touring circuit. Crest Audio soon found ways to incorporate more punch into everything from preamps to loudspeakers and everything on the rack in between.
Crest Audio's product line quickly established a reputation within the industry as innovatively rugged pro audio solutions capable of logging millions of road miles, while stadiums around the world adopted the company's NexSys® computer-based network. A testament to Crest Audio's heritage of quality, these products have outlasted most of the bands they toured with.
Crest Audio is a company after Peavey's own heart, so it made perfect sense when Peavey acquired Crest in 1999. Still sold under the strong Crest Audio name, the product line continues to deliver more features and more reliability than ever.
