Here you can find the latest firmware for your DIRECTOR
The DIRECTOR is the first touch screen controlled remote from Audiotec Fischer.
The device is capable of managing all of the primary functions of the DSP. The DIRECTOR is compatible with all DSP products from Audiotec-Fischer which have support for the DSP PC-Tool Version 3 and above.
To guarantee long-term updatability, we have used an ARM processor which offers us the capability to integrate new features in future without having to build a completely new unit from scratch.
We did it this way because we believe in giving our customers the very best value for their money.
With the DIRECTOR, you can comfortably adjust the master, subwoofer, HEC / MEC / AUX and digital volume from the driver's seat. The control range is between -60 dB and 0 dB for master, HEC / MEC / AUX and digital volume and between -40 dB and 0 dB for the subwoofer. The volume is adjusted in 0.5 dB increments.
Input Select menu
The "Input Select" menu allows for switching between the input sources. Depending on the connected device, the possible options are Main, HEC / MEC / AUX and Digital Optical are available as input sources. In addition, the volume of the selected source can be set here.
Bluetooth Control menu
The DIRECTOR allows direct control of the HEC / MEC BT extension. Once a connection has been established successfully between the Bluetooth device and the HEC / MEC module, it is possible to control the module via the DIRECTOR. In addition to play / pause, forward and backward songs, the volume of the Bluetooth input source can also be adjusted using the rotary dial on the front of the DIRECTOR.
Tone Control menu
The "Tone Control" function allows for the bass and treble levels, as well as their transfer frequencies to also be set via the rotary knob of the DIRECTOR.
To update the firmware of the DIRECTOR please download the Updater and install all programs which are included in the installation routine.
You need "administrator rights" on your PC to install the programs.
