How does COBRA react if the SMPTE time code stops or is lost while the show is running?

There are two options for determining how your COBRA system should handle these situations; you can select the option you prefer by entering the value "timecode1" or "timecode2" (without the quotes) into column J in your script file header row. See SMPTE Sensitivity Options for more information.

Timecode1 - The script will continue to play if SMPTE timecode is lost or paused. This is the recommended option.

Timecode2 - The script will pause/resume if SMPTE timecode is lost or paused. 

Please see our Script Format for more information on formatting your script file.
