Ambient Master Lockit
Ambient Master Lockit – It is a timecode master and ”On the Set“ metadata server. With its dual processor architecture, the Master Lockit truly is the most powerful timecode device we have ever built. Using the acclaimed Lockit timecode generator with its rock-solid, high-accuracy, temperature-compensated oscillator, along with the sophisticated ACN, the Master Lockit offers features like generator-buffered timecode transceiving or 0.0ppm drift between linked units through the unique continuous jam with control and monitoring through the integrated web GUI.
The Master Lockit adds control, flexibility and comfort to your existing Lockit setup. Being designed to perform as central hub in your system, the unit is able to display and control all other ACN devices on set.Access the ACN control system using the browser of any computer or mobile device via Wi-Fi for elegant wireless functionality. This enables you to name your Lockits and assign them to the camera or audio recorder to which they are connected.
Lockit Metadata Communication
As productions already use Lockits and connect them to cameras, 3D-rigs, Sound recorders…, ACN-equipped Lockit units can also read out device-specific metadata for transmission to the Master Lockit server. While the internal memory centrally stores and hosts all metadata collected through ACN connected units, iPads running LockitSCRIPT automatically sync their data though the Master Lockit’s router functionality.
Based on the unrivaled accuracy of the Lockit system, 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.
With Firmware 4.1, we integrate remote functionality for the renowned Sound Devices 633, 664, 688, and 788T into the Master Lockit’s capabilities. The new Remote Control Tab in the Master Lockit’s web interface provides wireless access to the most important recorder functions like Record Start / Stop, Track Naming, Track Arming, Metadata entry for the current and upcoming clip, Circle & Waste Clip, Track Metering (with the 788T), Access to the metadata of the last clips.
Audio Professionals can also combine the added control of Master Lockit along with CL-12/ Alaia Linear Fader Controllers as they perform seamlessly together for even more powerful control of 6-Series Recorders.
The Master Lockit control surface is self-contained and accessible from any device with a browser and WiFi – so it is not bound to a specific platform like iOS or Android. In other words, 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.
