Peter, you can email support at and ask for the Externals SDK, 
or look for it on

An "external" is C library (.dll/.bundle/.so) that the Rev engine loads 
and defines new transcript handlers and functions that are implemented 
in C or whatever language.

The Externals SDK consists of a couple of example projects, but no 
documentation. Docs are expected to be forthcoming.
