Set a New Record

Lectrosonics is introducing two new wideband SM transmitters: the SMWB (powered by a single AA battery) and the SMDWB (powered by two AA batteries). These new transmitters have a similar look and feel to previous SM Series units, but add wideband tuning and the ability to act either as a transmitter or as a bodypack recorder. Please note that these functions cannot be used simultaneously.

Shipping starts immediately. but the initial supply will be limited and we'll be fulfilling orders first come, first served, so order today for earliest possible delivery!

Nano y Mano

UPDATE, 10/6/17: IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MASTERLOCKIT AND MASTERLOCKITPLUS USERS. There was a bug in the initial firmware release - if you downloaded 5.10, discard the files and download the new Ambient-MasterLockit-5.1.0-2. files.

If you have an unit with a serial number starting with MLA and have already installed the earlier version of 5.10, the little square in the OLED will not come on and you won’t be able to log in to your MasterLockit’s web interface. Contact us if you have this problem and we'll arrange a fix.

Firmware v5.10 is out for the Ambient Lockit devices, including the NanoLockit, MasterLockit, Tiny Lockit, Lockit Box, and Time Code Slate!

The NanoLockit update includes the ability to increase the LED brightness, toggle the auto power feature, enable the LNA antenna ample while on battery power, and stop the NanoLockit from being re-jammed incorrectly when using a bi-directional power cable.
