Responsive Display messages show status and record setup options as well as playback and disc burn options.

HDi Control is as versatile as HDi recording. All operations are available from front panel pushbuttons and available via TCP/IP commands and optionally, RS-232 serial.

Web control: HDi has a built-in webserver with basic commands and file listing for playback. We're building intuitive applications for recording, playback and disc burning.

Storage Options abound. Among the most popular combinations is a 2.5” removable hard drive and slot-load DVD drive. The removable 2.5” disk ensures complete security and ease of changing media for different assignments

HDi DVD 04a Discs

 Optical Storage: the slot-load DVD drive is preferred by many users to prevent breakage of the tray in a conventional drive. Files can be copied to the DVD disc as files or automatically formatted and recorded as DVD-Video discs. Recordings can also be copied to a network drive or to the front USB port.  

Remote Protocol:  The HDi-250 uses the "BCD1" 4-character command protocol, standard with all BCD products since 1982.   Commands like PLAY & STOP are enhanced with disc commands like COPY and BURN.

General

The unit occupies 1 rack space and is equipped with a single DVD +R/+RW drive, complete information display, Composite and S-Video I/O, dual DB-9 jacks for RS-232, a USB-B connector, and an RJ-45 jack for the optional web server. Military Versions are available with NO Hard Drive,  NO Networking and NO USB.
