Ambient ACN-LS Timecode Lockit Slate Take 2
The Ambient ACN-LS Timecode Lockit Slate is a highly accurate smart-slate system featuring a unique product design and functionality.
The completely revised LED timecode display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. This allowed us to reduce the batteries to only 4 AA cells while still achieving prolonged battery life. Additionally, we equipped the new slate with light and motion sensors. Thus, the brightness can adjust automatically to the local light conditions, and the timecode display flips when the slate is turned upside down. The easy removable handle allows for perfect one-handed operation.
- Back slate sensor: flips the tc display when the slate is turned upside down.
- Light sensor: automatically adjusts the LED brightness when activated.
- ACN clap time transmission via ACN
- Rugged, interchangeable polycarbonate board
- Backup Supercap: Holds the tc for more than 10 minutes without batteries
- Reads vari speed and reversed time code
- Comes with Clapper Bag
With it’s all-new and revolutionary modular construction, the electronic section of the Lockit Slate can 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.
Thanks to the built-in supercapacitor, the ACN-LS is able to hold the highly accurate timecode for more than 10 minutes after loss of power.
Changing batteries no longer automatically means re-jamming the slate.
Transmit the clapped time directly to the script app
Furthermore, this new slate comprises clap time broadcast in addition to the same full functionality of the Tiny Lockit including ACN support with clap time broadcast.
These network capabilities also allow the Lockit Slate to be a fully-functional, generator-buffered timecode transceiver. This provides the same stability of an Ambient Lockit generator that has the flexibility of a wireless TC system but without the fear of dropouts.
Use the Lockit Slate as Midi TC display and interface
The Lockit Slate offers a variable timecode offset to compensate for processing delays of digital cameras. Plugged in into a computer, the Lockit Slate transforms into a highly accurate midi timecode interface with LTC / midi timecode conversion and of course big TC LED display.
As known from the Lockit and Tiny Lockit, the user interface is easy and intuitive to use.
Both the ACN time code devices and the LockitNetwork apps are excellent stand-alone tools. Once used together, you can experience the beauty of two worlds working smoothly together.
That‚Äôs why we decided to include a free-of-charge LockitScript app license with upon registration all ACN Lockit devices (blue).
