ETC Gio Lighting Control Console

Product Code ET4240A1012-EU
Manufacturer ETC

Request more information or contact us now for purchasing information.


The power of ETC's award-winning Eos lighting control system-in a compact footprint, sized just right for any space and budget. Elegantly lightweight and portable, Gio also lets you take Eos's popular feature-set on tour.

At the mid-range of the ETC Eos line, Gio is positioned between the Eos and Ion® control boards - sharing the same powerful programming DNA and familiar syntax. Programmers who have used ETC control before will instantly take to the operational style; novices will learn the desk easily. The keypad layout is virtually identical to Eos, making moving between platforms a breeze.

Gio also introduces some new technologies to the Eos line-up. Gio's buttons are back lit, so you can save your dimmable Littlites® for your script instead. Gio also includes two articulating multi-touch displays, and supports up to three external displays - all of which can also be multi-touch.

And Gio can be integrated into an Eos or Ion system with ease, acting as a primary, backup, or client desk in combination with the rest of the family. All of the accessories for Eos and Ion work with Gio.
