The ACN-LS timecode 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, Ambient 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.

Use the display standalone as fully functional timecode interface

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.

Never lose the timecode when changing batteries

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-jaming 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 Ambient 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.

This way the ACN-LS opens up the possibility to sync multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation.
