Hard Drive Video & DVD Recording from BCD’s DVD-1150HDD

BCD DVD-1150HDD DVD/Hard Disk Recorder BCD Associates, Inc.,a leader in DVD Control Systems, is now shipping its DVD-1150HDD industrial HDD/DVD recorder designed specifically for remote control via RS-232, USB serial and optionally, built-in web server control. The hard disk capability permits recording from 58 to 348 hours of video to the standard 250GB drive.

Hard Drive Recording
Video may be directly recorded to either DVD or the hard drive. Once recorded, individual titles may be erased or recorded to DVD disc faster than real time. Titles that are too large to fit on a single DVD are automatically ‘spanned’ to two or more discs. Complete hard drive erasing takes only 30 seconds. The DVD-1150 is also available and for security reasons has no hard drive.

It’s All About Control!
“Many of our clients wanted full status feedback for use with computer control as well as AMX® and Crestron® controllers,” said Robert Howard, Vice President of Product Development for BCD Associates. “The DVD-1150HDD provides two-way communication over RS-232 and USB serial ports so the user is assured that when they issue the Record command, the machine really records.”

The DVD-1150HDD uses the “BCD1″ 4-character command protocol, standard with all BCD DVD-1150HDD Rear Control ConnectorsBCD products since 1982. It provides full remote control with complete operational status reporting including current transport mode, frame position, remaining record time, and 15-character title labels. DVD Finalize and Erase are each single remote commands requiring no on-screen menus.

Multi-Machine Control – Built In !
BCD’s experience in multiple-machine control makes it easy to operate many DVD-1150HDDs at once. The unit features dual RS-232 connectors for daisy-chain control of up to 100 machines from a single serial port. Each recorder is assigned an address, and machines may be grouped under software control to start recording at the same time.

The DVD-1150HDD occupies 1 rack space and is equipped with a DVD +R/+RW drive, information display, Composite and S-Video I/O, dual DB-9, USB-B connector, and an RJ-45 jack for the optional web server. For security, the DVD-1150HDD has no hard drive at the request of BCD’s government clients. The DVD-1150HDD is available now at a suggested list price under $2000.
