Like all Clockit devices, the portable ACL204 time code and sync generator is based around a highly accurate, tunable, temperature compensated crystal. This way it can synchronize different devices without any cables or fragile wireless transmission.
Surpassing the already comprehensive facilities of its predecessor, it not only covers all timecode rates and sync formats, but also allows the user to apply an offset to the TC output to allow for the processing delay created in some HD cameras.
3D camera rigs can be made lighter and neater by utilizing the 2nd TC output and the sync OP can be switched to drive a dual load. The integrated transceiver and the 2nd Lemo socket can be used to interface with the Clockit Network System and allows the ACL 204 to work as a fully functional, generator buffered wireless time code transceiver.
To accommodate for all this the hardware has been completely revised into a flexible, fully programmable FPGA architecture. A front loaded OLED display will give instant visual feedback about the current configuration and assist while moving through the menu to make adjustments. This is now done on the fly with an easy to operate one-finger navigation system - no more need for screwdrivers or powercycling the unit. An intelligent algorithm prevents configuration of mismatched TC and sync rates or unintended alterations to the setup.
And at its core, the ACL204 is still a simple TC and sync box driven by 2 AA cells in the familiar rugged Ambient model.
