The Ambient Lockit Slate is a modular time code slate and display.
Key Highlights
  • Supports all SMPTE frame rates
  • Adjustable TC offset
  • Uses only (4) AA batteries


The Ambient Recording ACN-LS Lockit Modular Timecode Slate is a durable, highly accurate, temperature-compensated time code generator. The completely revised LED time code display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. This reduces the required batteries to only (4) AA cells and still achieves a prolonged battery life.

Additionally, Ambient has equipped the new slate with light and motion sensors. Thus the brightness can now be automatically adjusted to the local light situation and the display flips when the slate is turned upside down.

The slate comprises the full functionality of the Tiny Lockit including ACN (Ambient Lockit Network) support, metadata and clap time transfer, and logging. These network capabilities also allow the Lockit Slate to be a fully functional, generator buffered time code transceiver. This provides the stability of an Ambient Clockit generator with the flexibility of a wireless TC system but without the fear of dropouts.
