Integrating 3rd Party Systems using SMPTE

SMPTE is also used to synchronize not only COBRA, but also other 3rd party technology applications that accept SMPTE time code such as DMX and lighting applications. This allows you to design effects using other technology and integrate the timing with music and COBRA at the same time. When integrating 3rd party systems, you split the SMPTE audio output to multiple systems that accept and sync to the SMPTE time code at the same time.


To integrate with COBRA and other systems, you can use COBRA Show Creator or a General Audio Source. We suggest reviewing the documentation and/or contacting the 3rd party system supplier for more information. You can also contact us if you have any questions as we may be able to help.
