Yes, BCD is having a Black Friday Weekend Sale!  We build commercial, industrial, and military video recorders.  We're not really a consumer company. 
But we got so caught up in all the Black Friday sales excitement that we decided to have one ourselves!  November 24 through Nov 27, 2017 only.

Please Note, BCD will be closed beginning Wednesday 22 November and will reopen Monday 27 November.


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
