Lockit box ACN-TL TINY

The Lockit box ACN-TL TINY the second in a new generation of Clockit products which will fully utilise the Ambient Clockit Network System.

This works brilliantly in conjunction with the Lockit box ACL 204CT as a pair.

By listening to practical feedback from our customers we have added functions to make this the most sophisticated portable timecode syncbox we have ever built. Surpassing the already comprehensive facilities of its predecessor it not only covers all timecode rates and sync formats but it also allows the user to apply an offset to the TC output to allow for the processing delay created in some HD cameras.

The integrated transceiver and the 2nd Lemo socket can be used to interface with the Clockit Network System.

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 a variable time code output level for recording TC on audio track.

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.

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.
