It's sd-card, but can easy install to nand. Tutorial https://github.com/cubieplayer/cubian/wiki/Install-Cubian
HDMI output by default, The guide use VGA as output https://github.com/cubieplayer/Cubian/wiki/VGA-output

I just don't know how to make a nand image, there is very little guide. and personally i don't want spend my time on this issue aslo.

Just buy a very cheap TF card, 1GB is enough to play cubian base, and 2 GB for cubian desktop.

Maybe the fastest way - diy image with kernel compile script for CB2/CT
https://github.com/igorpecovnik/Cubietruck-Debian

Since you don't need an SD image put "exit" just before # Creating SD Images and run the script - on Ubuntu 12.04 (maybe only distro 100% operational).
Debian and Ubuntu images with kernel 3.4.110, 4.3.3, 4.4
