Riedel's Director Configuration Software Goes Vista At NAB'08

(PresseBox) (Las Vegas, USA, ) Riedel Communications, pioneer of advanced intercom and radio technology, will introduce its latest version of the Director configuration software at NAB'08. In addition to several new features and enhancements Director version 5.70 is now fully compatible with Windows Vista. The new Director also incorporates a "Scheduler" function which can change aspects of the configuration at pre-defined times.

Following Riedel's strategy to bring a higher level of integration to communications in broadcast studio environments, Director now supports programming of intercom panels in Stagetec's Aurus mixing console. Incorporating Artist intercom panels in digital audio mixing consoles and routers is possible because Artist control panels are connected to the intercom matrix via a standard AES3 signal where the user bits of the AES stream are used for the panels' data. Integration of Artist intercom panels is also supported by products from LAWO, SSL and Studer.

The Director configuration software for Artist intercom systems provides the facilities, look and feel associated with most Windows software products so that the basic navigation, location and operation of standard features are familiar. A real-time application, Director allows an engineer to remotely monitor the live-state of all panels, thus eliminating the need to physically go to a panel where a user has reported a potential problem. Using the Remote-function he or she can even remotely control the panels of a specific user.

Director is easy to learn and extremely convenient to use. Configurations are simply edited by drag-and-drop. Programmable logic functions provide the possibility to handle complex production requirements with ease, while freely definable markers allow customized signalization throughout the system. In addition, the Audio Patch function facilitates the remote configuration of all internal routing and DSP settings for control panels in an Artist system, thus considerably reducing the amount of time needed for the setup and service of the system.
