Ambient Recording NanoLockit Overview

The matchbox-sized NanoLockit Pro Kit Red from Ambient Recording is a highly accurate and easy-to-use timecode generator that allows you to wirelessly sync timecode and frame rate between devices. The Pro Kit Red allows for compatibility with the RED EPIC, WEAPON, HELIX, MONSTRO, and DSMC 1 and 2 cameras (excluding a REDVOLT battery). It includes the NanoLockit, a timecode output cable for connecting to the RED, and a USB cable for external power connection, internal battery charging, MIDI timecode, communication, and firmware updates. The timecode cable runs 5-pin LEMO to 4-pin LEMO.


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.

Rock solid timecode

I'm so glad that I pulled the trigger on the ambient nanolockits. The sync ability is seamless and makes the post production work effortless.

TC made easy. Works great with my TC slate.

These little things are rock solid. They have tons of functionality and a small size. The Computer interface is great, I can check battery and jam straight from my MacBook. I will definitely be purchasing more products from Ambient!

question

is there a way to set auto frame rate if my camera needs to shoot 24fps then 60fps on a hurry?
Asked by: Waynes world
According to Ambient: The ACN-NL follows the TC frame rate it is jammed with. Thus, if you jam the device with 24 fps (or 23.976) it will take over these frame rates. A 60 fps frame rate is not specified by SMPTE, and therefore not available by the NL. Regarding high speed, the cameras generally switch to internal counting of the frames and are not synced with the other devices. Usually the time code frame rate is not changed within one production.

question

If a nanolockit its connected to my panasonic gh5 will the camera internal mics still record audio and if the Panasonic DMW-XLR1 XLR is connected?
Asked by: BRENT
If the camera has no XLR adapter and you plug the NanoLockit's time code cable into the 3.5 mm jack, the camera's internal microphone is off.If they feed it into one of the inputs of the Panasonic DMW-XLR1 XLR Microphone Adapter B&H # PADMWXLR1 , you can still connect a microphone to the second XLR.

question

Can this use with C300MKII and Sound Devive Premix6 as the C300mkII has a timecode input with sdi cable, does NanoLockit has a SDi adapter?
Asked by: Waynes world
According to Ambient: The NanoLockit does not have a SDI port. To supply the Canon C300 MKII with time code, you have to use the camera's BNC TC port. For syncing up this camera with the new Sound Devices MixPre-6, you will need the ACN-ML-D double pack and the LTC-OUT cable.
