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

PushbuttonsIllumniated if you like. Our favorites have black surrounds, clear plastic top, with a transluscent insert that we can provide in colors.
Electrically, our buttons are just like any other. Momentary contact, Normally Open, Single Pole, Single Throw. Physically they're tough, arcade-style buttons able to take a beating by thousands of fingers.
Some buttons are all solid-color plastic. The solid colored buttons are primary: red, blue, white, yellow, and green.
The Triangles, Squares, Small Round and Medium Round have clear plastic over a white piece. Frequently we'll just use colored paper or ink-jet white letters on a colored background to put under the clear plastic.
