  • Sept. 15th — Lead time on shipping Gio @5 Consoles is estimated at 24 weeks *  once the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line).

    This longer than normal lead time is a result of the global chip shortage, and affects all manufacturers.  ETC is working tirelessly to clear backlogs and source components, however this is likely to continue into 2023.  While we all hope its resolved sooner, we encourage customers to plan for extended lead times.
  • * 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.

Gio @5 brings the high-end control of the larger Eos family consoles to venues with tighter spaces – or tighter budgets.  This portable console packs all the control necessities into a compact footprint, so external monitors and accessories are optional.  With an articulating, 17", multi-touch LCD display, five definable and page-able motorized faders and a master fader pair, Gio @5 is the perfect step up for Ion users who want expanded hands-on access to playbacks, color control, touchscreen Magic Sheets and more.

The console features the same full-function, backlit keyboard as the Eos Programming Wing and Gio console, providing an easy transition for experienced Eos users looking for a smaller desk – and a good platform for new programmers looking to gain professional skills that scale up.

  • ² Augment3d available starting in Eos v3.0, which does not support early generation Windows XPe devices.
  • ³ The Element 2 does not support Multiple Cue Lists or more than one active playback.  Additionally, fader wings are not supported.
  • ⁴ PC requires Windows 7 or higher. Mac requires macOS Mojave or later.  The ETCnomad software is free for offline programming or "mirror mode", but requires a USB Key to act as a client.
  • ⁵ The console is still limited by the number of DMX universes/outputs, thus you may not be able to use all these channels.
