Setup configuration of the DIRECTOR
The menu structure
1.1 Display Rotation
1.2 Backlight Mode
This menu is used to configure the backlight of the display individually. There are four options available:
- Auto (High): The backlight is automatically dimmed if a high level is detected at the illumination wire (8 - 18 V)
- Auto (Low): The backlight is automatically dimmed if a low level is detected at the illumination wire (GND / Ground)
- Dim: The backlight is dimmed permanently (set to the backlight dim level)
- On: The backlight is permanently set to full brightness
In addition a display timeout value can be adjusted between 0 and 60 seconds by using the control dial. The timeout is triggered if no user interactions are recognized for the adjusted time frame. In this case the display brightness is set to the backlight timeout level.
Note: The dim- and timeout brightness of the display can be individually adjusted in the Backlight Level menu.
1.3 Backlight Level
This menu is used to change the dim and timeout brightness by using the control dial. If the timeout brightness is set to “0” the display is completely turned off after the time is expired.
Note: The configuration of the dim and timeout function has to be adjusted in the Backlight Mode.
If the Screensaver function is activated, the display changes to the Voltage Monitor screen (see item 4.7) when the adjusted time (15, 30 or 60 Seconds) is expired.
Note: The Screensaver is only supported by devices that support the Voltage Monitor function.

2.3 PS Mode
The DIRECTOR frequently checks the status of the Power Save Mode of the connected DSP device. If the auto standby option of this menu is enabled and the Power Save Mode is activated in the device, the DIRECTOR will be set automatically to standby mode and the display turned off. The DIRECTOR wakes up automatically if the Power Save Mode is deactivated or a user interaction is done.
Note: The DIRECTOR´s connection to the DSP remains active in standby mode.
2.4 Mute / ATT Function
This menu allows to switch between Mute and ATT (attenuation) when the control dial is pushed. The ATT function can be set to three different values which specify the different sound attenuation levels.
Note: The ATT function always reduces the master volume by the adjusted value. Changing the volume while Mute/ATT is activated has no effect.
3.1 Reset to Defaults
This menu is used to set the DIRECTOR back to default values.
Caution: The saved configuration and the internal DIRECTOR Sound Setups (No. 3- 22) will be erased after accepting the warning message by tapping on “Yes”!
Note: The reset may take a few minutes and the DIRECTOR will be restarted after this procedure.
