Ion sports a generous programming keypad, four dedicated encoders for non-intensity parameter control, a grand master and blackout button, as well as a master split fader. For more hands-on control, Ion hosts up to six USB fader wings - the 1x20, 2x10 and 2x20 - for a total of 300 additional mapped submasters or cue lists with paging controls. The desk can support one or two external high-resolution Windows® 7-compatible monitors that can also be touch- or multi-touch screens.
Ion starts at 1,024 outputs and can expand to 6,144 outputs, upgradeable in increments of 512 outputs. Each of these versions supports 16,000 channels, which can be numbered from 1 to 99,999.
A networked Ion system supports up to four discrete users on multiple control surfaces. System devices include a combination of desks, Remote Processor Units (RPU), Nomad™ and Nomad Puck™, for synchronized backup or stand-alone lighting applications. Clients can include Net3™ Remote Video Interfaces (RVI or RVI3), Nomad Puck™ and Nomad™. Remote control is also provided with the Net3 Radio Focus Remote (RFR) or iRFR or aRFR apps for mobile devices.
Use Ion in a stand-alone system or as a remote programming station for an Eos Ti or Gio system. When Ion is used as a client in an Eos, Eos Ti or Gio system, it supports the full output of that host system.
