The matchbox-sized NanoLockit from Ambient Recording is a highly accurate and easy-to-use timecode generator which allows you to wirelessly sync timecode and frame rate between devices. The Pro Kit Green allows for compatibility with the ARRI ALEXA, the ARRI AMIRA, Blackmagic, Canon, Sony, and the Panasonic VariCam cameras. It includes the NanoLockit, two timecode cables, and a USB cable for external power connection, internal battery charging, MIDI timecode, communication, and firmware updates. One of the timecode cables runs 5-pin LEMO to 5-pin LEMO and allows for unidirectional timecode input/output while the other is 5-pin LEMO to BNC and provides for timecode output.
Synced devices enable you to generate clips that can be quickly auto-conformed in professional editing software, streamlining your post-production workflow. The NanoLockit lets you generate timecode at all frame rates using the built-in Real Time Clock (RTC), or jam-sync other units by feeding in external timecode via the 5-pin LEMO connection. Syncing up is a one button experience as the unit self-configures and the frame rate is set automatically when jammed.
Timecode and metadata are transmitted via the proprietary 2.4 GHz, ACN long-range radio network, making the unit compatible with all other ACN Lockit devices. Power is provided externally via the micro-USB port or by the rechargeable battery, which provides 35+ hours of operation on a full charge. With its sturdy aluminum body and locking LEMO port, the NanoLockit is well-equipped to withstand the prolonged rigors of on-set use.
