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.
