The HD-4i version has a case display built into the chassis. This case display can be configured just like any other output and is helpful for local monitoring purposes.
Also, the HD-4i model includes two internal hard disk drives (HDD), which provide more than double the recording capacity (depending on resolution and format) and allow for full-capacity ISO recording (4 channels) without the use of external storage. Compare this to the more streamlined HD-4 model, which lacks the built-in case display and, similar to TriCaster 410,requires the use of external storage to take full advantage of the integrated ISO recording capabilities.
