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 late 2015 BCD introduced the remarkably versatile High Definition, High Resolution HDi-250 HD Recorder, now popular with both Military and City Government as a utility recorder.

HDi Firmware Version v2.8-rc7 is now shipping.
Steamilined internal code for stability and ease of enhancement,
The HDi series is relatively new, so there aren't many comments, but we're generally pleased with what we've received.
The church's AV Coordinator had a problem: The church had spent thousands of dollars on new 1080 cameras and projectors. Fantastic pictures! But some members were shut-ins who relied on DVDs of each service. The HDi-250 offered both: HD and DVD recording. Problem solved.
