The Ambient ACN-LS Lockit Slate provides a rock solid, highly accurate, temperature compensated time code generator.
The second generation's physical construction is identical to the original so that accessories or custom made faceplates can seamlessly be used on the new product.
Powering is via four AA cells, optimized for chargeable NiMH chemistry, allowing for a run time of over 24 hours with the slate open at default brightness. External powering is possible over USB-C.
The second generation also features improved resistance against humidity through lip sealing around the LED display.
A miixed adaptive LED brightness mode has been added, allowing the user to manually set the desired brightness and the display will dynamically adapt to changing light situations. The display flips when the slate is turned upside down.
Transmit the clapped time directly to the script app
The slate incorporates the functionality of the Lockit network, including ACN (Ambient Clockit Network) support, metadata and clap time transfer, and logging. These network capabilities 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 into a computer, the Lockit Slate transforms into a highly accurate Midi time code interface with LTC / Midi time code conversion and time code LED display. The ACN-LS opens up the possibility to sync multiple cameras with a workstation. The easy and intuitiveuser interface is carried over from the Lockit and Tiny Lockit.
Use the display standalone as fully functional Tiny Lockit
Thanks to its modular construction, the electronic section of the Lockit Slate can also serve as a fully functional, compact stand-alone display for documentary or desktop use. Housed in a machined, pearl blasted, and anodized aluminum body, it can easily withstand production conditions.
Never lose the time code when changing batteries
Thanks to the built-in Supercap, the ACN-LS is able to hold highly accurate time code for more than 10 minutes after loss of power. Changing batteries no longer automatically means rejamming.
Choose the slate body to suit your purse and style
Interchangeable slate bodies and clapperboards in various sizes, weight, and materials allow for easy customization, so the user will always be able to choose the slate body that suits them best.
