Tiny Lockit - ACN TL

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. With firmware 3.1 the ACN-TL is able to continuously compare its internal generated time code with other ACN devices. This way a drift can be completely avoided.

Time code for DSLR cameras
In addition, it also offers a variable time code output level for recording TC on audio track.Thus, non time code capable cameras can be integrated in  professional workflows.

Integrated computer time code interface
Plugged in into a computer, the Tiny Lockit transforms into a highly accurate Midi Timecode Interface with LTC / Midi Timecode conversion. This way the ACN-TL opens up the possibility to sync for examples multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation.
The second Lemo connector is used for TC or communications and can be configured as USB, RS232, or GP I/O.

Intuitive user interface
As known from 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, but also on cameras or in setups where a sync signal is not required, it is a handy solution. Thanks to the machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body the Tiny Lockit can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.

Modular Time Code Slate and Display Lockit Slate ACN-LS

The completely revised LED time code display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. Therefore we could reduce the batteries to only 4 AA cells and still achieve a prolonged battery life.

In addition, it also offers a variable time code offset to compensate for processing delays of digital cameras. Plugged in into a computer, the Lockit Slate transforms into a highly accurate Midi time code interface with LTC / Midi time code conversion and of course big TC LED display. This way the ACN-LS opens up the possibility to sync for examples multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation. As known from the Lockit and Tiny Lockit, the user interface is easy and intuitive to use. 

Controller - ACC 501

A whole set of features as time code, word clock, MIDI TC and GPS capability makes the ACC501 rather a time code Swiss army knife than just a master clock. An extensive keypad and a graphical LCD with command and menu bars ensure an intuitive but comprehensive user interface. Using a reprogrammable MPU the controller features a future-proof design with growing capabilities. Firmware revisions are obtainable through the download section and can easily be performed by the user.



Ambient Beetle (ACN-BT)

Bluetooth Dongle

The ACN-BT „Beetle“ establishes a wireless link for serial communication between selected apps and devices using latest Bluetooth 4.0 LE technology (*).
Initial support is strictly limited to Sound Devices 788T recorders in use with the TonMeister app (**).
Designed specifically as a reliable, cost and power effective alternative option to the CL-WiFi remote (***) this acombination serves as a comprehensive remote control surface for the recorder including in-depth metadata editing and sophisticated sound report generation/output.
Thanks to the option to interconnect to various devices via interchangeable cable connection the unit is readily prepared to upcoming feature upgrades and support a growing number of units. Power and configuration is determined by the connected cable alone delivering true plug&play experience.
An external. replacable antenna is provided for maximum performance comparable to a robust WiFi connection.
The Beetle will ONLY be detected with compatible app active. Enable Bluetooth within the system settings on you iPad Gen. 3 or later and launch app. The Beetle should connect automatically and now also show up in your system settings.
Supported devices:
Sound Devices 788T connect to C-LINK IN port of your recorder

(*)Please check compatibility with app and host in use first! BT 4.0 is supported on from iPad gen.3 and later as well as iPad Mini.
(**) TonMeister and LockitSCRIPT app are not supported on iPhone or iPod.
(***) Due to it's exclusive communication over WiFi Sound Devices' CL-WiFi app does not support the ACN-BT

Time Code Transceiver System - TC-TRX

Timecode Transceiver Modul

The TRX Series is working with Amplitude Manipulation. This quite unbeknown radio technique offers a lot of advantages compared to common AM and FM Radio Links. The receiving range for instance is equal while the power consumption is only half of the power normally needed. Furthermore, the receiver module always outputs a perfect squarewave signal independent of the distance. This way the Ambient TRX works for more than 100 hours with only one battery load (2 AA).A sliding switch is build inside the battery compartment to fast change the configuration.The TRX is available with three different frequencies which are easily notified via a colour code at the antenna. (TC-TRXA (418 MHz) blue antenna, TC-TRXB (433 MHz) red antenna, TC-TRXC (315 MHz) green antenna)
