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.


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.
