Gio joins ETC’s Eos console family

Posted on Friday, September 9th, 2011

The middle child of the Eos line, the new Gio sits between Ion and Eos in the product family – sharing the same programming DNA.

Gio also introduces some new technologies to the Eos line-up. Backlit buttons have arrived (so now you can use your dimmable Littlites for your script instead) Gio includes two integral, articulating multi-touch displays and supports up to three external displays, all of which can also be multi-touch.

Gio can integrate into an Eos or Ion system with ease, acting as a primary, back-up, or client console in combination with the rest of the family. All of the accessories available for Eos and Ion service Gio as well.  The keypad layout is virtually identical to Eos, making moving between platforms a snap. If you know Eos, you’ll know Gio.
