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

We've tried to keep the rear panel as straightforward as possible.
Rear Panel I/O
The section on the right has Component In/Out(BNC), Composite In/Out(BNC), Audio In/Out(RCA) and HDMI Input/Output.
On the left is the Power connector and various computer connections. We use a COTS Industrial 4-core computer to drive the syste.
Even though most of the connections are not used, we leave them exposed because some of them stick out beyond our rear panel.
The one connector worth mentioning is the RJ-45 LAN socket for TCP/IP remote control.
For military versions the USB and LAN connectors are permanently covered by an inside panel.
[HDi-250] Video/Audio I/O is on the right panel.
Component: Y, R-Y, B-Y, Composite
The HDi series is relatively new, so there aren't many comments, but we're generally pleased with what we've received.
Yes, you CAN take it with you. Available Slot-load DVD drive for easy operation. Optional Removiable hard drive for absolute security. No other professional DVR or DVD recorder gives you both convenience and security.Slot-load prevents damage from accidental clumsiness.
