The Power of Plus
For over 30 years, Ambient Timecode has been synonymous with precision and reliability. Like the Lockit, the Lockit+ provides all timecode and Sync formats and full ACN compatibility.
What is ACN?
But wait… there is more! We called it Lockit+ because of its modular design and the many added values.
+ Modular Design
The Lockit+ is designed to serve different situations on set or in the studio. With the Standard Extension it can be elegantly operated both from the sound cart and sound bag. In future there will be different extensions available.
+ WiFi Access
The built-in server spans a local WiFi, giving users browser-based access to all the Lockit+ features via mobile device or computer. The web interface gives access to advanced generator settings and monitoring of all Lockit devices within the ACN.
+ More Connectors
While the front of the Lockit+ offers the same two outputs you know from the Lockit (Blue TC & ACN Connector / Yellow TC & Sync Connector) - the Standard Extension provides additional connections for different setups. In total the Lockit+ with Standard Extension has:
- 2x Blue TC & ACN Connector
- 1x Yellow TC & Sync Connector
- USB-A connector (Frequency Scanning Antenna)
- USB-C connector (Camera Metadata / Powering)
- USB-C connector for Midi TC (Future Feature)
- Hirose (Powering)
+ Frequency Scanning
Plug the separately available antenna into a USB port of the Lockit+ to perform a full frequency scan. In the web interface you get concrete suggestions for available frequencies for your transmitters and receivers.
Plug & Play. Simply plug in and start the frequency scan in the Lockit+ web interface in the "Radio Wizard" tab. The frequency range can be freely selected between 100 MHz and 1500 MHz.
The fitting RF scanning antenna (ACN-RF) is available in a bundle with the Lockit+ or sold separately.
+ Lens Metadata Processing
The Lockit+ stores key Cooke/i lens metadata frame-accurately in an open file format (supported protocol: Cooke/i3 - “i cubed”).
Record lens data on the internal web server or connect an USB stick for recording. Also live lens data is available via WiFi or Ethernet. The API is available on request. Please contact: email@example.com
The respective cable is sold separately
+ Metadata Hub for LockitScript App
The Lockit+ can extract technical metadata from compatible cameras to broadcast it via WiFi to the Ambient LockitScript App for script supervisors.
+ Flexible Powering
The Lockit+ can be powered by 6 to 24 Volts DC via a Hirose 4-pin connector (e.g. using this Hirose Power Supply) or via the USB-C socket.
It is also possible to run the Lockit+ only with the two included BX1 batteries. In basic operation the batteries will last for up to 4 hours.
