We've tried to keep the rear panel as straightforward as possible.

BCD HDi Back Full V2 1500

Rear Panel I/O

The section on the right has Component In/Out(BNC), Composite In/Out(BNC), Audio In/Out(RCA) and HDMI In/Out.

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
