The Ambient Lockit ACL 203 is a highly accurate portable timecode and video sync generator. Audio and video machines such as DAT, harddisc and DVD recorders and HD and Digibeta cameras can be synchronised to the Lockit box, thus giving very low drift between machines, allowing multicamera shoots to be carried out without cables or timecode radio links. Typically, the drift will be less than one half frame a day, giving problem free editing and syncing in post production.
The Lockit can be used in any recording situation where the accuracy of the TC generators in the different machines is not known and where a cable connection is not possible. Each machine is jamsynced and Genlocked, (if possible,) to its
own Lockit which is synced to a common source before the machines start.
The Lockit can be jam synced with external timecode, set using the Ambient Controller ACC501 via ASCII through cable or Infra Red, or set by Aaton OrigenC ASCII code.
Clockit tunable reference oscillator for timecode generation gives typically less then one half frame a day timecode drift.
Hightly accurate DTCXO reference oscillator. Can be calibrated in the field to 0.2ppm using Clockit Controller ACC101 or ACC501.
Crystal oscillator for video and trilevelsync locked to reference oscillator low jitter high stability signals.
