The ACN-ML Master Lockit is both the flagship and hub of the sophisticated Ambient Clockit Network System. It provides a rock solid, highly accurate, temperature compensating time code generator. With powerful processor architecture, it delivers established ACN features like 0.0ppm drift (thanks to continous jam) as well as generator buffered time code transceiver mode, and more.
Access the ACN control system using the browser of any computer or mobile device via Wi-Fi to name your Lockits and assign them to the camera or audio recorder to which they are connected, as well as remotely jam sync all units on set, view battery status, set the time, use time of day, or see the last clap time of the ACN-LS.
The ACN uses global timecode as reference to create a comprehensive shot list containing crucial clip information like name, roll number, start and stop times of each and every recording and machine.
The ACN utilizes an extremely reliable, proprietary 2.4GHz ̶ network with 16 selectable channels for communication to minimize lag and interference with other radio sources. All gathered information is buffered until it is successfully received and stored.
Remote control your Sound Devices recorder
Units running Firmware 4.1, or above have integrated remote functionality for the Sound Devices 633, 664, 688, and 788T. The Master Lockit’s web interface provides wireless access to the most important recorder functions like record start and stop, track naming, track arming, metadata entry for the current and upcoming clip, circle & waste Clip, track metering (with the 788T), and access to the metadata of previous clips.
The Master Lockit control surface is self-contained and accessible from any device with integrated WiFi and browser can connect to the ACN-ML web interface without limitation.
Thanks to its responsive design, the control interface will always automatically adjust to your screen size. This not only enables use of a notebook on the sound cart, it allows seamlessly switching to a smartphone for run-and-gun situations.
Included LockitScript App
The LockitScript app elegantly accommodates all the daily needs within the demanding role of a Script Supervisor. This comprehensive and time-saving tool helps fighting paperwork, duplicate listing and overtime after wrap.
With the LockitScript app, script supervisors note content information for every single clip. The Master Lockit Web Interface enables DITs to access the merged data through the Master Lockit in real-time and to download important clip-based content information, e.g an ALE-File, for direct import into your pregrading software.
Redundant Time Code and Power I/O
In addition to the double time code interface and ACN antenna port, the ACN-ML provides two DC I/O connections for power loop-through capability. The built-in Li-Ion backup battery is automatically charged with external DC and keeps the unit including WiFi up and running for more than 3 hours.
