CLOCKIT TIMECODE


All Clockit timecode equipment features a very accurate TCXO crystal oscillator which can be calibrated in the field to give less than 0.2ppm reference frequency difference. This is the heart of the system and results in timecode drifts of less than 1 frame in 24Hrs between Clockit units. All Timecode framerates can be generated, including 23.98fps (24 pulldown). In addition Clockit timecode equipment can be set using the Aaton ASCII protocol.

Sound Devices and Ambient collaborated in the design of the time code section on Sound Devices highly acclaimed harddisk recorders. These recorders are fully compatible with the Clockit system and inherently accurate. Thus, the Clockit controller ACC501 can be used to calibrate the SD744T to other time code equipment through the 5 pin Lemo socket on the Sound Devices' recorder. Also, the recorders do not require external synchronisation when used with other Lockit-synced equipment.

The well known Timelord Dr. Who is rumoured to have placed a large order for Ambient timecode equipment to synchronise the time dilation modules of the Tardis. ;-)

ACL 204 HD LOCKIT


Price: 680.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

ACL 204 HD LOCKIT

The all new ACL 204 is the beginning of a new generation of Clockit devices.

After listening to the hands-on experience of customers, Ambient have further added functionality making this the most sophisticated portable time code sync box ever built. Going well beyond the already comprehensive capabilities of its predecessor the ACL 204 not only covers all existing TC and Sync formats but now for the first time allows to apply a generator offset to compensate the dreaded processing delay of typically 2 frames experienced on some file based HD cameras.

Dual TC I/O and a Sync output that can be switched in power mode to drive the load of 2 cameras assure a compact and clutter less experience on any 3D rig.

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 operateone-finger navigation system - no more need for screwdrivers or powercycling the unit.

An intelligent algorithm will prevent configuration of improper, mismatched TC and Sync rates or unintended alterations to the setup.

Still being a simplistic TC and Sync box at the core driven by 2 AA cells in the familiar rugged footprint the ACL 204 can be considered the pinnacle of portable synchronization.

SUPPORTED SETTINGS:

  • 720P - 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 59.94, 50, 60

  • The ACL204 will also form part of the new ACN (Ambient Clockit Network) which will form the basis of the consolidation of all location data onto one master server in real time during your shoot. More details about the ACN to follow soon.

    ACN-TL AMBIENT TINY LOCKIT


    Price: 500.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

    ACN-TL AMBIENT TINY LOCKIT

    Timecode Generator & Transceiver

    As all Ambient Clockit devices the Tiny Lockit provides a rock solid, highly accurate, temperature compensating time code generator.

    Except for the sync signal output, it comprises the full functionality of its big brother, including ACN (Ambient Clockit Network) support, metadata transfer and logging. These network capabilities also allow the Tiny Lockit 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.
    In addition, it also offers most of the features of the ALL601 (Ambient Lanc Logger), such as variable time code output level for recording TC on audio track and time code conversion between LTC / MTC. The second Lemo connector is used for TC or communications and can be configured as USB, RS232, or GP I/O.

    As with the ACL 204, the user interface is easy and intuitive to use.
    Due to its smaller form factor the ACN-TL is especially suitable for applications on small cameras. It is an ideal solution also on cameras or in setups where a sync signal is not required. Thanks to the machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body the Tiny Lockit can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.

    ACN-LS LOCKIT SLATE


    Price: 755.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

    ACN-LS LOCKIT SLATE

    The Ambient Lockit Slate is a brand spanking new timecode slate system. It has become a fully fledged member of the ACN family!

    It is a modular slate, and has lots of new features. It is brighter, uses less batteries, and remarkably has a longer lasting battery life. It changes its brightness depending on ambient light, and we are surprised that this next feature didn't exist before, it has a motion sensor, which when you flip the board to do an end board, auto-rotates the display thus keeping the timecode readable, simple yet genius.

    As well has having the networked META data functionality of the ACN (such as sending the clapped time to the LockitSCRIPT app), it has a built in transceiver compatible with the existing products.

    The ACN-LS can also convert LTC/MIDI timecode, allowing for instance a multicamera shoot working with backing tracks sourced from say ProTools to keep in synch.

    Essentially the ACN-LS is a timecode slate that has all of the functionality of the TinyLockit generator with a few more bells and whistles. It is easy to use and set up, using the same menu system that was initially developed for the Lockit and the TinyLockit.

    Let's not forget that the timecode display can pop out of the slate giving you an independent display / reader / generator giving you lots of flexibility from this one piece of gear.

    We have these in stock and we are already shipping them to our customers.

    ACN-ML MASTER LOCKIT

    ACN-ML MASTER LOCKIT

    Ambient's Master Lockit is the hub of the ACN (Ambient Clockit Network). It is the most powerful timecode device that they have built to date.

    Here is what Ambient say about it:

    It is a time code master, wireless video proxy server, and "On the Set" metadata synchronization hub.

    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, new processor architecture, it delivers established ACN features like 0.0ppm drift (thanks to continuous jam) as well as generator buffered time code transceiver mode, and more.

    Built-In WiFi enables ACN communication between iPads

    Built-in WiFi router enables iPads running LockitSCRIPT and Tonmeister apps to automatically sync all metadata. It serves as the metadata synchronization hub as it's onboard webserver collects and stores all metadata on the set. Meanwhile, iPads running LockitSCRIPT and Tonmeister apps maintain a local data backup.

    ARRI ALEXA communication plus collection of critical metadata with most cameras

    Ambient has partnered with ARRI to integrate ALEXA metadata protocol into the ACN-ML via Ethernet. This enables the Master Lockit to provide the ALEXA with the driftless time code while the Master Lockit simultaneously collects metadata. In addition, it has built-in GP I/O and LANC ports, enabling the Master Lockit to collect record start / stop positions of most cameras, including Red, Blackmagic and Panasonic.

    Wireless video proxy distribution directly into the LockitSCRIPT app

    Thanks to Ambient's partnership with Teradec and Vitec the Master Lockit (ACN-ML) can interface with their recorders, store up to 64GB of video, and distribute video proxys directly into the LockitSCRIPT app. These video clips are associated with the collected metadata. Now you can use the LockitSCRIPT app to reference actual video clips within associated takes and scenes, while accessing all data collected during that shot!

    FEATURES

    • WiFi routing for communication between LockitSCRIPT and Tonmeister apps
    • Proxy streaming and recording with Terradeck or Vitec streaming boxes

    TIMECODE RADIO LINK SYSTEM


    Price: 434.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

    TIMECODE RADIO LINK SYSTEM

    The Ambient Time Code Link is a transceiver module.
    The module can be configured to be either Transmitter (LED lights up green) or Receiver (LED lights up red). There is a sliding switch inside the battery compartment to change the configuration.

    Switch towards outside = transmitter, towards inside = receiver.

    Note This is a great partner when shooting with the Sound Devices 7-series digital recorders, or the 552 mixer (with the latest firmware). These recorders can be set to go into record automatically when they sense that the Record Run TC starts up. In this instance the radio link system would be invaluable in not missing a record cue and allowing production to satisfy their desire to have Rec Run timecode instead of Time of Day timecode as is so often the case.

    Price is for a pair of transceivers but does not include input or output cables.

    ACC 501 CLOCKIT CONTROLLER


    Price: 825.00 (Excluding VAT at 20%)
