ACN-LS Lockit Slate

RX EmergencyACN-LS Lockit Slate


A Modular Time Code Slate and Display

As all Ambient Clockit devices the Lockit Slate provides a rock solid, highly accurate, temperature compensated time code generator.

»Double the brightness with 2 cells less and still longer battery life«

The completely revised LED time code display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. Therefore we could reduce the batteries to only 4 AA cells and still achieve a prolonged battery life.

»Transmit the clapped time directly to the script app«

Furthermore our new slate comprises the full functionality of the Tiny Lockit including ACN (Ambient Clockit Network) support, metadata and clap time transfer, and logging. These network capabilities also allow the Lockit Slate to be a fully functional, generator buffered time code transceiver. This provides the stability of an Ambient Clockit generator with the flexibility of a wireless TC system but without the fear of dropouts.

»Use the Lockit Slate as Midi TC display and interface«

In addition, it also offers a variable time code offset to compensate for processing delays of digital cameras. Plugged in into a computer, the Lockit Slate transforms into a highly accurate Midi time code interface with LTC / Midi time code conversion and of course big TC LED display. This way the ACN-LS opens up the possibility to sync for examples multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation.
As known from the Lockit and Tiny Lockit, the user interface is easy and intuitive to use.

»Use the display standalone as fully functional Tiny Lockit«

Thanks to an all new and revolutionary modular construction, the electronic section of the Lockit Slate can be removed and also serve as a fully functional, compact standalone display for documentary or desktop use. Housed in a machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body it can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.

»Choose the matching slate body to suite your purse and style«

Interchangeable slate bodies allow for customization and will be made available as easy to swap clapperboards in various sizes, weight, and materials ranging from basic to classy. So, the user will always be able to choose the slate body that suits him best.
