Hoojum designs, known for visually striking small form factor PC designs has gone one step further with the release of the Nanonde in conjunction with VIA and Mini-ITX.com.
Crafted from high-grade aluminum and precision cut with a unique combination process of high pressure water and garnet, a hardened semi-precious stone, the Nanode sports an elegant ceramic matte finish that complements any living or working environment. The system’s charm and appeal are enhanced by its quiet operation and small size, approximately the same of a jewelry box, ensuring it can fit into even the most space-constrained environment.
The tiny Nanode, as compared to an apple, features a slot-loading optical drive.
“We are very excited about the Nanode digital entertainment system,” said Richard Brown, Associate Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “With its stylish, miniaturized design, it provides the perfect embodiment of the core design values that were are working to promote on the VIA Nano-ITX form factor.”
The 120 x 120mm Nano-ITX boards use the highly efficient penny-sized VIA Eden-N processor running at speeds of up to 1GHz. They feature the new VIA CN400 digital media chipset with integrated hardware based MPEG-4/2 acceleration and advanced video rendering techniques. Rounding off its cinematographic appeal, it delivers a compelling visual experience on all display types from CRT and LCD screens to standard definition TVs and HDTVs, accompanied by crisp clear 6-channel surround sound from the onboard VIA Vinyl Audio Six TRAC controller.
“The application possibilities awaiting the Nanode are boundless considering the impressive digital media capabilities of the VIA CN400,” said Ewan Wilcocks of Mini-ITX.com. “With its reduced size and new features, the VIA EPIA N Nano-ITX takes the Mini-ITX concept one step further, and the Nanode captures the spirit of innovation and elegant design that the board is intended for.”
The sleek and stylish Nanode is barely wider than a DVD.
Nanode was developed exclusively for Mini-ITX.com by Hoojum Designs, testifying to their long term collaboration and commitment to creating aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly digital media PCs.
“Style, build quality and compactness have always been our trademark, and with the Nanode we have kept our signature curvey outline and matt texture,” commented Angus Morrison, Co-Founder, Hoojum Designs. “What inspired us about this design is that we could reduce the size of our designer small form factor PCs while adding excellent digital entertainment features and capabilities to the system.”
Nanode will be available exclusively from Mini-ITX.com in Q2, 2004. For further details visit http://www.nanode.com/.
