The ACN-TL Tiny Lockit from Ambient is 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.

Fully Functional Time Code Transmitter/Receiver

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 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

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. Thanks to the machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body the Tiny Lockit can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.
