BCD Adds New Slot-Load to DVD Recorder

BCD Adds New Slot-Load DVD Recorder

At customer request, BCD Associates has added slot load as an option to its DVD-1150 and DVD-1150HDD DVD Recorders

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — BCD Associates, Inc., a leader in DVD Control Systems, announced the return of its optional Slot Load disc drive for the DVD-1150 industrial DVD recorder. “The new SATA drives have more rugged mechanisms for industrial applications,â€? said Robert Howard, Vice President of Product Development.

“It’s not just aesthetics,” said Howard. “The slot is easier to use and reduces the possibility of damaging the drive in heavy-use environments. There is no mistaking it for a cup holder.â€? The slot load drive occupies the same space as the standard tray drive.

It’s All About Control
The DVD-1150 and DVD-1150HDD have been proven for use with computer control as well as AMX® and Crestron® controllers. The DVD-1150 provides two-way communication over RS-232 and USB serial ports so the user is assured that commands are issued and verified. The BCD protocol provides full remote control with complete operational status reporting including current transport mode.

1U Rack Form Factor
The DVD-1150 is housed in a rugged enclosure with rack-ears supplied for easy operation as a desktop or rack unit. Unlike consumer units, the case provides easy access for maintenance of mechanical components.

Multi-Machine Control — Built In
BCD’s experience in multiple-machine control makes it easy to operate many DVD-1150s at once. The unit features dual RS-232 connectors for daisy-chain control of up to 100 machines from a single serial port. This is particularly useful for government and military applications when multiple sources must be recorded simultaneously.

The DVD-1150 occupies 1 rack space and is equipped with a single DVD +R/+RW drive, VFD information display, Composite and S-Video I/O (PAL/NTSC), dual DB-9 serial control, USB-B serial control, and an RJ-45 jack for optional web server control. The DVD-1150 is also available as the DVD-1150HDD with a hard disk drive as well as optional 12VDC power for mobile operation. The DVD-1150 is available now at a suggested list price under $2000.
