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 from the front panel or via remote.  Simply Amazing!

RECS   record from current input
....
STOP   stops the recording
MARK 1  marks/selects the most recent file
BURN 3  makes a DVD with Motion Icon Menu

Disc ejects when it's finished.
A one-hour DVD takes about 5 minutes to burn to a +/-R disc.

HDi Clients Comment

The HDi series is relatively new, so there aren't many comments, but we're generally pleased with those comments we've received.

  • from a reseller:  "...  It is good as the process has been simplified.

    The device also started displaying the live video and audio after boot up [video loop through].   So this is also good.

    And then I transferred the same video files before to an USB stick after formatting. All Played!!! Wala!! Happy days!! And now to the next test….  I recorded a new file. And I transferred this new file and all the older files to the same USB stick (after formatting). And all played!!!! I am so happy.
  • City Government:  "I’m still in the process of building out the new control room for our new tv station/ production room. I tested it on a table for a while and it seemed to work out great. It’s straight to the point and I hope to have it recording for the next 10 years."
  • From a reseller:  "They [clients] have mentioned that the quality of DVDs produced by the BCD is superior [to their current DVD recorder], and obviously the HD files are in another league altogether."
  • From a US Army user: Fits well in the rack.  Makes good pictures.

 

Buttons & Panels

It's easy for us to say "Just connect your own buttons, put them in a panel..." but not everyone wants to or can do that. Let us offer some help with your installation.

Pushbuttons
Illumniated 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.



Button Colors
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.

Latest Version v2.8d

HDi Firmware Version v2.8d is now shipping.
Steamilined internal code for stability and ease of enhancement,

  • Simple Control by Crestron, AMX, Extron
  • Easy Detect of input video formats
  • Security PINs: Supervisor & Operator
  • Built-in Basic Web Interfaces

F.Y.I.

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 archives and DVD recording.  Problem solved. The HDi-250 can transcode & resize incoming video on the fly.
