  • Mar. 20th — Lead time on shipping Apex 5 is estimated at 20 weeks *  once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).
  • * Due to the rapidly changing situation, lead time can change within hours of an update.  Sometimes it can be extended due to supply chain issues like delayed/missing packages of critical parts.

The Eos Apex 5 console is the compact powerhouse of ETC's flagship lighting controllers, and is engineered for comfort and customization on the go.  The condensed programming surface provides access to all of the same tools as the larger Apex desks, in a portable form factor.  And because Apex 5 is powered by Eos control software, you'll have all the same award-winning features as other Eos Family consoles.

Apex hardware is designed to remain state-of-the-art for years to come.  Top-of-the-line features include customizable Target keys for Direct Selects, a built-in soft keypad, book lights for paperwork, a dual-axis folding display panel, and generous encoder tools for LEDs, moving lights, and media control.  The Eos Apex 5 provides a smaller footprint without sacrificing programming power.
