Some installations require synchronization with other media, like audio, video, pyrotechnics, and control signals. This is most often done using the SMPTE timecode. For those situations, The TC4000 hardware is a great solution.
This device connects to our software as a midi device, allowing for more flexible control and comes with the ability to write and read many different framerates, like 24, 25, and 30, all over linear (Audio) Timecode (LTC).
In reading mode, the TC4000 decodes the incoming LTC timecode and passes it to BEYOND software. The playback of your laser show is then locked to the incoming SMPTE timecode. If the timecode stops, the laser show stops (alternatively, you can set the show to continue “freewheeling”). Once the timecode starts again, the laser show and starts again.
