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.
