Running laser shows using SMPTE timecode is quite common, especially when working at large scale festivals, and permanent installations.
Often the timecode will be recorded on one audio track. Then at playback time, the timecode audio is read and decoded by a SMPTE timecode reader device.
In this short tutorial we show you the basics of setting up SMPTE timecode together with BEYOND laser show software.
Pangolin also offers a convenient and easy to use SMPTE Timecode device, called the TC2000. You can see this by clicking here.
