The Cavision Next-Generation Slate with LED Light and Black & White Clap Sticks is an updated version of the classic, film set, clapper slate. Clapping sticks provide simple and virtually foolproof visual and audio sync points when using a separate audio device to record audio (double system sound). The slate incorporates an LED light unit that illuminates the film title/production name section of the slate.

It features black and white swatches on the clap sticks, a pre-printed acrylic face to use available dry erase markers on, and an ABS resonance chamber on the back that amplifies the bang of the clap sticks closing, which is useful in noisy environments. The chamber also provides support to the slate itself, making it sturdier.

The slate's latch system holds the sticks closed, so they don't pop open when you are carrying the slate in between shots. The latch also means that you no longer need magnets and a stiff hinge to hold the slate closed, allowing the slate's single bolt hinge to provide free movement. A slot incorporated into the back of the slate provides a convenient way to hold the slate during operation. The slate is suitable for use on set or as a presentation item to the filmmaker when the film is done shooting.

LED unit backlights the production name field on the slate, providing legibility when shooting in dim/dark conditions. The light automatically turns off when the sticks are closed.
The LED light offers 5 modes:
  • Fast-Flash
  • Slow-Flash
  • Bright
  • Dim
  • Bright-Flash
LED light lasts approximately 5-hours per charge.
The slate incorporates an internal charger with built in USB cable. You can charge the internal batteries via USB or use the included USB to 110/120VAC adapter.
Resonance Chamber amplifies the clap of the sticks, making it a crisper sound.
Pre-printed text is under the top acrylic surface, protecting the printing from wear and blurring over time.
Text fields: Prod., Roll, Scene, Shot, Take, Director, Show ID#, Camera, and Date.
