Video Streaming:

Did you know that all HDi-250 recorder can stream video during Record and Play? You can share the video throughout your organization's network. Just select "Streaming" from the front menu (Menu, Up). We use the VLC program at the remote computers, but other applications can play the stream, too. Just specify the HDi IP address and Port 8090.

AMX DVD / Crestron DVD Control

Control is built-in!
The BCD HDi was designed to be controlled. 

Why choose an HDi-250 ?
IR is one-way. 
                 BCD's STAT and MODE commands tell you what is really happening.

Reliability:  Some DVD RS-232 interfaces "go to sleep" after a while and need rebooting.
                    RS-232  and USB Serial are the HDi-250's  primary methods of control.


How hard is it to program?

See our Basic Commands section.  All commands are 4 characters of English mnemonics, terminated by a Carriage Return.  'PLAY' means PLAY.

The RS-232 multiple recorder control architecture permits standard Crestron & AMX systems to control up to 100 machines... from a single serial port!

(Note: Crestron created a Crestron Integrated Partner Module in mid 2008.  It's pretty old and may not be compatible with current firmware.  Please check with Crestron.... or more efficiently, send the commands directly: STOP, PLAY, etc.) 

    Crestron Controllers support the DVD-1150
