German translation:opti-gerichtet
Explanation:
"opti-" in this context could refer to "optimal". Yet, it seems to be a "feature expression" of the company, thus the German translation should try to stay close to it. "directional" means "(aus)gerichtet"; thus "opti-gerichtet" would be an artificial/marketing "Unwort" to describe "opti-directional".
