ETC ION delivers a substantial programming keypad, a grand master and blackout button, a master split fade, and fully dedicated encoders specifically designed for controlling non-intensity parameters.

For more control the ETC ION provides six USB faders: 2x20, 2x10, and 1x20, a total of an additional 300 sub masters, complete with paging controls.

The desk can also support one-to-two high-resolution external DVI monitors that are also able to be used as touch screens.

ETC ION lighting consoles come in five basic configurations: 3072, 2560, 2048, 1536, or 1024 outputs. Each one of these different versions fully supports a variety of channel numbering: from 1 to 10,000. This networked ETC ION system is able to support four distinct control inputs.
