Asked by: ingahin
A recommended distribution amplifier that could share TC and genlock with one cable on the Ambient Recording ACN-CL Lockit Compact Wireless Timecode Synchronizer would be the AJA C10DA Analog BNC 1x6 Distribution Amplifier, B&H # AJC10DA.

What's the battery life on a fully charged NP-50?

What's the battery life on a fully charged NP-50?
Asked by: Nicholas
On a FujiFilm NP-50, the ACN-TL should last 18 hours. Time is dependent on many factors, generally, I get a full day of shooting out of one battery. I carry a spare charged battery. The supplied battery lasts much the same as a FujiFilm battery.

Is this basically a stripped down Master Lockit? ...

Is this basically a stripped down Master Lockit? Or would this be used in conjunction with a Master?
Asked by: Godofredo
The Lockit ACN-CL replaces the discontinued ACL204 and TinyLockit ACN-TL in terms of functionality. As such it delivers timecode and sync signals such as genlock, wordclock, and PPF required to make it the perfect choice to be an external synchronizer for all kinds of cameras and recorders. It also can be set to act as a C-Jam master to slaves other units when used as the timecode reference on a soundcart, so the sound mixer can comfortably synchronize the set. However it does not feature the sophisticated web interface of the MasterLockit, which is still an active product. These features are based on an additional web server accessible through WiFi which the Lockit lacks both. So, if your customer is looking for sound reporting together with Sound devices 6series and 788T, visual monitoring of synced devices over ACN, metadata processing including a virtual slate, this will always require a MasterLockit.

Will this device accept an SDI signal as a ...

Will this device accept an SDI signal as a genlock input, broadcast this over ACN, and output a wordclock referenced to it? I see lots of discussion of genlock output, but not input. I have a camera without genlock, and I want to avoid pops when combining HDMI + AES - SDI. Therefore I want to synchronize the audio ADC to the un-genlockable camera.
Asked by: Miles
no this device will not work as a genlock for a camera without genlock, it's base/fundamental mode of synchronization is time code
