Since 1980 BCD Associates, Inc. has manufactured video control and time code systems. In 2008 we shook up the industry with our rack mount, industrial, RS-232 Controlled DVD-1150 DVD recorder. In 2015 BCD introduced the remarkably versatile High Definition BCD HDi-250 HD Recorder. Now popular with both Military and City Government as a utility recorder. We invite you to explore our site and look around. Please fill out our Contact Form or call us at 800-223-6734 to find out more.

BCD's Brand New Recorder! Click Here to Receive Updates Nearly everything you asked us for!
This is the NEW Hdi! New because it has a new more versatille capture system, and new because of it's enhanced firmware.
The BCD HDi is not what most people think of when you say "DVR". It's not part of a set-top cable box, and it's not a security video recorder. The BCD HDi is a series of versatile disk-based video recorders designed for industrial, scientific, government educational and military video recording. The HDi-250 answers many of our customers’ requests for features like:
You could think of it as an industrial DVD recorder with a hard drive, or as a hard drive recorder that burns DVD. Either way, it's one of the most versatile tools you can use.
Compact 1U Rackmount design with removable rack brackets allows for desktop operation.
High Definition Video Resolution is standard with the HDi-250: up to HD1080 (1920 x 1080) in various formats.
Video I/O for the HDi-250 is HDMI, Component and Composite with 2-channel stereo audio. Other I/O configurations are available with other models.
Video Overlay is available as Date, Time or Date & Time in the lower left of the picture.
Responsive Display messages show status and record setup options as well as playback and disc burn options.
HDi Control is as versatile as HDi recording. All operations are available from front panel pushbuttons and available via TCP/IP commands and optionally, RS-232 serial.
Web control is coming. HDi has a built-in webserver and we're building intuitive applications for recording, playback and disc burning.
Storage Options abound. Among the most popular combinations is a 2.5” removable hard drive and slot-load DVD drive. The removable 2.5” disk ensures complete security and ease of changing media for different assignments
Optical Storage: HDi-250 is equipped with a standard DVDRW drive for maximum compatibilty. The optional slot-load DVD drive is preferred by many users to prevent breakage of the tray in a conventional drive. Files can be copied to the DVD disc as files or automatically formatted and recorded as DVD-Video discs. Recordings can also be copied to a network drive or to the front USB port.
Remote Protocol: The HDi-250 uses the "BCD1" 4-character command protocol, standard with all BCD products since 1982. Commands like PLAY & STOP are enhanced with disc commands like COPY and BURN. HDi shares many commands with BCD's DVD-1150 with more being added.
The unit occupies 1 rack space and is equipped with a single DVD +R/+RW drive, complete information display, Composite, Component, and HDMI Video I/O, a front-mounted USB connector, and an RJ-45 jack for TCP/IP control. RS-232 connector is an option.
