HD HDMI to DVD
Not an easy thing but we do it! Plug in HD HDMI and the HDi-250 automatically downconverts and transcodes to DVD format files. Then burn a disc right from the front panel. Simply Amazing!

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.

The HDi series is relatively new, so there aren't many comments, but we're generally pleased with what we've received.
The church's AV Coordinator had a problem: The church had spent thousands of dollars on new 1080 cameras and projectors. Fantastic pictures! But some members were shut-ins who relied on DVDs of each service. The HDi-250 offered both: HD and DVD recording. Problem solved.
