With the ease, power and operational style of Eos® in a small, affordable package, the ETC Ion 1000's small footprint – 19" wide only – is the perfect solution for space-challenged environments and small venues.  Providing fully integrated control of conventional and moving lights, Ion packs a punch.

Elegant, highly intuitive and simple to use, Ion will satisfy the needs of beginners and pros alike.  But you don’t need a PhD in Ion to use it.  Start with the everyday (channel 5 at full) and let the full potential of Ion – like the powerful effects package, marking and timing functions – unfold with your experience.  And it's an easy step from Ion to Gio® or Eos, so the knowledge gained will work for you professionally for years to come.

Ion sports a generous programming keypad, dedicated encoders for non-intensity parameter control, a grand master and blackout button, as well as a master split fader.  For more hands on control, Ion hosts up to six USB fader wings – the 1x20, 2x10 and 2x20 - for a total of 300 additional submasters with paging controls.  The desk can support one or two external high-resolution DVI monitors, which can also be touch- or multi-touch screens.

The Ion supports 10,000 channels, which can be numbered from 1 to 99,999.  A networked Ion system can support four discrete control inputs, including a combination of Ion desks, Ion Remote Processor Units - for synchronized backup or stand-alone lighting applications, Net3 Remote Video Interfaces or PCs/Macs running the Eos Family Client Software.  Remote control is also provided with the Net3 Radio Focus Remote, iRFR or aRFR.

Use Ion in a stand-alone system or as a remote programming station for an Eos or Gio system.  When Ion is used as a client in an Eos or Gio system, it supports the full output of that host system.
