Access, set-up and control of any aspect of an Artist system consisting of hundreds of intercom ports on multiple nodes is achieved using the comfortable and intuitive Director configuration software.

Director provides the facilities, look and feel of most Windows software products, so that the basic navigation, location, and operation of the standard features are familiar. It’s quick to learn and extremely convenient to use. Configurations are easily edited by drag-and-drop.

Programmable logic functions provide the possibility to handle even complex production requirements with ease, while freely definable markers allow a customized control of the system.

The Audio Patch function allows the configuration and storage of all routing and DSP settings of each individual microphone unit of an Artist system.

A variety of implemented monitoring and diagnostic features lets maintenance personnel quickly solve a problem or to assist a user. This is achieved by the real-time Crosspoint View function in conjunction with the full remote control of each aspect of the system.

An extensive user level control allows for setting up user groups with dedicated access rights to the system.
