Beginning with HDi-250 units ordered after 15 March 2017, the HDi will be equipped with a new CPU board and firmware v3.0. The new HDi will automatically check for and download firmware updates, including new features. Previously, updating the firmware involved a fairly long download, but no more! Version 3.0 is much smaller than previous update files. We expect that v3.0 will be the last download you'll need to perform. After that, it should take care of itself.
BCD's Newest Recorder: IP & RS-232 Control ! Everything you asked for !
The BCD HDi is not what most people think of when you say "DVR". It's not part of a set-top cable box, and it's not a security video recorder. The BCD HDi is a versatile disk-based video recorder designed for industrial, scientific, educational and military video recording. The HDi-250 answers most of our customers’ requests for features like:
You could think of it as a DVD recorder with a hard drive, or as a hard drive recorder that burns DVD. Either way, it's one of the most versatile tools you can use.
Compact 1U Rackmount design with removable rack brackets allows for desktop operation.
High Definition Video Resolution is standard with the HDi-250: up to HD1080 (1920 x 1080) in various formats.
Video I/O for the HDi-250 is HDMI, Component and Composite with 2-channel stereo audio. Other I/O configurations are available with other models.

Video Overlay is available as Date, Time or Date & Time in the lower left of the picture.
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 is coming. HDi has a built-in webserver and 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
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.
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.
