Long delays-more expensive

In February 2017 we announced End Of Life for the venerable DVD-1150/1150b.  

After evaluating the increasing costs, and the difficulty in obtaining parts that were going obsolete, we elected to discontinue production the DVD-1150b except for some Military clients.

We will continue to try to produce the DVD-1150b, but in very limited numbers, increased delivery time, at increased cost. Advance payment required. 
Inquire for price and delivery times.

  First introduced in 2007, it has been a mainstay for those who needed a reliable, RS-232 controlled, rack mount, industrial DVD recorder.  We are shipping only to customers with existing orders and long-term POs.  


It is our plan to offer the HDi-250 High Definition Recorder with the capability to record directly to DVD-Video discs, just like the DVD-1150.  Please check this site often for details, or use our Contact Form to receive email updates.
