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 @5, Gio or Eos Ti, so the knowledge gained will work for you professionally for years to come. Use Ion in a stand-alone system or as a remote programming station for a larger system.
Show file compatibility with the entire Eos Family, from the Eos Ti down to the Element² and ETCnomad.

² The Element does not support Multiple Cue Lists or more than one active playback. Additionally the physical submasters are locked to numbers 1-60, and fader wings are not supported.
³ PC requires Windows 7 or higher. Mac is Intel only and requires OS X or higher. The ETCnomad software is free for offline programming or "mirror mode", but requires a dongle to act as a client.
⁴ The console is still limited by the number of DMX universes/outputs, thus you may not be able to use all these channels.
