  • G2 Digital ISE 2020

    One week to go before ISE 2020!

    Updated 04/02/2020

    We’re now only days away from the world’s largest AV systems integration show, Integrated Systems Europe, in the heart of Amsterdam. The show is a home-from-home for some of the biggest and most respected names in the AV and digital media industry, from Samsung to Sony, and we’re elated to be joining them as an exhibitor for the second year running. With a bigger and better stand than last year in tow, we’re taking things up a notch by showcasing some of our most impressive applications and running live demonstrations so you can see for yourself exactly what our products can do.

    Intel meets Power over Ethernet

    Where last year’s show provided the platform for the debut of our Intel-based Fanless NUC, this year we’re bringing three Intel-powered Dawson Canyon NUC products along with us, all of which allow our customers to harness the many benefits of PoE. Power over Ethernet can be a massive game-changer for AV integrators, not least because it radically simplifies and streamlines computer installation by enabling both power and data to be transmitted through a single cable, but also because it’s more secure, flexible, and affordable than more traditional solutions. We’ll be displaying the true power of PoE on our stand, so make sure you take some time to swing by for a quick coffee and a chat about why these Intel-based products are so great for AV production challenges.

    Water-cooling for the win

    We know how difficult it can be to make the most of high-end next-generation processors the likes of Intel’s i9-9900K, particularly in a compact rack mount PC. That’s why we’ve engineered a pretty epic water-cooling solution made up of components modified specifically for use in a smaller unit. This awesome application will feature on our stand in the form of our 2U PC, which will be host to AMD’s powerful Ryzen Threadripper 3970X. Because the 3rd gen chip has a sweltering TDP of 280W, the same as its younger cousin, the 64-core 3990X, it requires sufficient cooling in order to ensure the temperature of our host unit is kept to a safe operating range. By visiting us at ISE, you’ll get the chance to see up close exactly how our solution works and better understand why water-cooling is so key to unlocking the full potential of your CPU.

    Perfect for portability and plenty of PCIe

    An ideal computer for maximising your graphics (GFX) cards, the vertical variant of our 3U PC will be in prime position on the stand. Offering up to 7x full height single PCIe bays, it allows as many as 3x professional GPUs to be fitted for exceptional graphics performance. We’ll also be bringing our horizontal model along, so you can see how we’ve enabled 2x consumer GFX cards to fit without compromising on the height of the unit.

    Also making an appearance this year is our popular and incredibly portable 2U Nano. Ultra-short-depth, the rack mount PC is perfect for transport in a flight-case, which is exactly how you’ll find it on our stand. Because it’s so compact, it fits neatly into the flight-case with plenty of room to spare. In fact, it’s even possible to fit two units within the same rack. Featuring dual-width GPU support and an optional redundant power supply, we’re certain this unit will really take off at ISE 2020.

    Book a meeting to learn more

    Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to learn everything there is to know about our rack mount computers by booking a 1-2-1 meeting with us at the show. You’ll be given the V.I.P treatment with a personalised tour of the stand based on the products that interest you. We’d love to see you there, so secure your slot before it’s too late!

    You’ll find us on Stand S282 in Hall 15 from 11th – 14th February at the RAI Amsterdam.
