The ACN-TL Tiny Lockit Timecode Generator & Transceiver from Ambient Recording is a temperature compensating timecode generator. Ambient Clockit Network support enables full generator-buffered timecode transceiver functionality. Connections consist of an antenna F connector and two 5-pin Lemos that can be configured for timecode in/out, RS232, USB, GPIO, switching, DC in/out, ASCII, tune signal, and PPF. Drift is less than a frame a day.

For about 20 years, the Ambient Lockit is the market leading portable, timecode and sync generator worldwide. Like all Lockit devices, the ACN-TL is based around a highly accurate, tunable, temperature compensated crystal for reliable synchronization of multiple devices without cables or fragile wireless transmission. The new ACN network-generation adds even more accuracy and comfort to the system, while maintaining the renowned reliability. Except for the sync signal output, the Tiny Lockit comprises the full functionality of the Lockit, including ACN support, auto tuning, wireless jam syncing, as well as metadata transfer and logging.

Built-In timecode wireless & C-Jam

The ACN-TL also can be used as fully-functional, generator-buffered timecode transceiver. This provides the stability of an Ambient Lockit generator with the flexibility of a wireless TC system but without the fear of dropouts. In addition, it also offers a variable timecode output level for recording TC on audio track. Due to its smaller form factor, the ACN-TL is especially suitable for applications on small cameras and in setups where a sync signal is not required. With it’s machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body, the Tiny Lockit can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.
