2U Nano is an AV Awards Finalist!

AV Awards 2018 Finalist 2U Nano

Posted by Geoff Undrell on: in: News, Products

We’re delighted to officially announce that our 2U Nano rackmount PC has qualified as a finalist for the AV Awards’ Production Product of the Year! This is fantastic news for G2, and we’re very hopeful that the PC is a strong enough candidate to see us through to the win. The nomination is a testament to our belief that the 2U Nano is a stand-out product, and we’re thrilled it’s been recognised as such by industry experts. Putting the unit forward for the award was a simple choice for us – we’re really proud of what the product is capable of, particularly because it’s proving such a popular machine among AV and digital media professionals.

Why we think it’s been shortlisted

A highly flexible, powerful, yet affordable unit, the 2U Nano is perfect for running a wide variety of key applications such as vMix, grandMA, and real-time rendering software, Notch. The ruggedised PC is incredibly compact at only 370mm deep, making it ideal for space-sensitive production environments and travel within a flight case. To add to its suitability for AV and digital media, the machine can also be configured to run almost silently at 34dBA thanks to rubber-mounted cooling fans and a specially chosen ultra-low-noise power supply, minimising disruption during shows. The 2U Nano doesn’t shy away when it comes to performance, either, built to support a wide range of CPUs that extend all the way up to the latest generation of Intel and AMD chips. It’s an extremely versatile machine, too – offering multiple slots and bays that enable our customers to harness powerful graphics cards, different storage options, and much more.

The innovation doesn’t end there

If all of its existing features weren’t enough, we’ve also recently added a redundant power supply unit (PSU) to the 2U Nano’s design. This gives our customers the reassurance that should the PC’s main power supply ever fail during a critical task or media production, the 800W redundant PSU can instantly take over the workload without interruption. Keep an eye out for our next blog on this for more details.

Wish us luck!

Our 2U Nano achieves what many media servers cannot – high-performance and power in a small form factor. That’s why we think it makes such a great contender for the Production Product of the Year – it directly addresses the needs and challenges of the AV industry. We’re very excited to learn the outcome of the judges’ final decisions at the AV Awards this September and look forward to seeing how the 2U Nano measures up. Keep your fingers crossed for us until then!
