H61h2 ti 1 ECS has unique mini ITX board for AIO designs

CeBIT might be past us for this time, but we still have a few titbits left from the show that we want to share. First up is ECS' H61H2-TI mini-ITX motherboard which might not sound all that exciting at first, until you realise that it has a unique feature in the shape of HDMI input.

In all fairness, the HDMI input is more like a pass-through as this slim-line board will most likely be connected to a display via a LVDS or eDP interface and as such the HDMI input will allow you to connect another device such as a notebook or a games console to that display and use it like any other display. This is a feature that Apple offers via a DisplayPort input on its 27-inch iMac, but this is the first time we've seen this done on a motherboard for an All-in-One PC and via HDMI.

The other features of the motherboard is far less exciting, although it's by no means a bad board, as it offers a pair of mini PCI Express slots, one full-size (which can be used as an mSATA slot) and one half-size, two SATA connectors, a pair of SO-DIMM slots, HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and a pair of audio connectors. Keep in mind that this is a low-profile or thin mini-ITX motherboard and that's a pretty decent feature set. At least there's some innovation of offer here from ECS and it's really quite strange that no other manufacturer of AIO systems have done this before.
