In 2015 BCD introduced the remarkably versatile High Definition BCD 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.
The HDi series is relatively new, so there aren't many comments, but we're generally pleased with what we've received.
HDi has Complete Security!

Copy files to the reliable, easy to use slot-in DVD drive, make DVD-Video discs with either Text Menus or Animated Video Icons.
