Artista - Intelligent Networking of Devices

Utilising Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0, a growing movement is emerging to instill products with their own intelligence for the benefit of users everywhere, taking some burden off them in the process.

The Artista controller boards with the latest Raspberry Pi Compute Modules CM3+ and CM4 are the perfect basis for cost-effective IIoT and Industry 4.0 applications such as:

  • SmartGrid (monitoring and control of vending machines)
  • Gateway to Middleware
  • Facility management (Data acquisition and monitoring of e.g. temperature, sensors, access control etc.) and many more

Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further information


The Artista controllers consist of an ArtistaMEDIA Baseboard and a Raspberry Pi Compute Module and can be easily adapted to the specific requirements of your application.

"My tests with the Artista-IoT are very conclusive, it's an amazing product!!"

Operating systems and software for the Artista IoT


Raspbian is a free operating system based on Debian and optimised for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. This operating system provides all the basic programs that get your Raspberry Pi up and additional precompiled software for easy installation on your Compute module. The large Raspberry Pi developer community provides support through the forum.




The Emteria operating system features an industrial Android ™ for our Artista IoT. Quickly installed and based on AOSP 7.1, it simplifies your development process and is the perfect foundation for all types of human-machine interaction. Emteria includes all major enhancements and security updates and is backward compatible.



The info-beamer software was developed specifically for all types of digital signage applications and also supports the Artista IoT hosted with info-beamer . The software is quick and easy to install, offering a variety of options from synchronized video walls, to conference room management, to electronic public transport schedules.



Video Poster-IV

Based on our BaseBoard with Raspberry Pi, we developed the network player VideoPoster-IV. It is full HD capable and plays various media files either from the 3GB internal flash memory or from a microSD card. Videos are optionally transmitted via Ethernet or USB . An FTP connection is also possible.
