Welcome to BCD!

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 BCD HDi-250 HD Recorder. Now popular with both Military and City Government as a utility recorder.  We invite you to explore our site and look around.  Please fill out our Contact Form or call us at 800-223-6734 to find out more.

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

HDMI

Hi Def and DVD

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.
