Artisto at a glance

On-Hertz Artisto is an audio-first software media engine for broadcast and media professionals. From simple signal monitoring to complex live production workflows, Artisto's fully modular architecture enables media brands to go from idea to high-quality content faster.

Artisto runs on Windows and Linux (using Docker) on Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT equipment, on-premises (bare-metal or hypervisor), on-the-go (laptops and NUCS), or on-demand (in the cloud).

Artisto offers a wide range of capabilities including routing, processing, AoIP contribution, monitoring... The full product sheet can be found here.

Artisto is architectured in several layers:

  1. the engine itself as a collection of micro-services;
  2. an open, modern and well-documented API;
  3. user interfaces
    • the Designer allows system engineers and architects to design audio pipelines with an intuitive brick-building web interface (in line with the highly modular engine architecture)
    • turnkey or fully custom operational user interfaces
    • bridges to third-party party protocols (MIDI, MIDI RTP, Ember+, Cerebrum...) for hardware controllers and/or third-party software.
