ETC Ion 1000 - 1,024 Outputs

The ease, power and operational style of larger Eos®-family products in a small, affordable package. Ion's compact footprint - only 19" wide- is the perfect solution for space-challenged environments and small venues. Providing fully integrated control of media servers and conventional, LED, and moving lights, Ion® packs a punch. 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 Ti™, so the knowledge gained will work for you professionally for years to come. Ion sports a generous programming keypad, four 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 mapped submasters or cue lists with paging controls. The desk can support one or two external high-resolution Windows® 7-compatible monitors that can also be touch- or multi-touch screens. A networked Ion system supports up to four discrete users on multiple control surfaces. System devices include a combination of desks, Remote Processor Units (RPU), Nomad™ and Nomad Puck™, for synchronized backup or stand-alone lighting applications. Clients can include Net3™ Remote Video Interfaces (RVI or RVI3), Nomad Puck™ and Nomad™. Remote control is also provided with the Net3 Radio Focus Remote (RFR) or iRFR or aRFR apps for mobile devices. Use Ion in a stand-alone system or as a remote programming station for an Eos Ti or Gio system. When Ion is used as a client in an Eos, Eos Ti or Gio system, it supports the full output of that host system.
