Being a Lockit at its core, the ACN-CL carries the DNA of its predecessors and inherits all the unique and appreciated features, combined with the unprecedented ease of use that has been first introduced with the NanoLockit.
Running off a swappable Li-Ion battery that can also be charged while operating makes sure that you never experience a low battery at the worst time. The NP-50 type battery is widely available along with economically priced chargers while also used by top tier professional radio mic brands which further helps reducing the variety of gear to carry along.
Jamming units to time of day with the internal Real Time Clock is a one button experience with the additional perk of a crisp OLED display. The Lockit can also operate as master by automatically jamming units that are added or restarted during the day. The OLED also brings the useful timecode compare tool introduced with firmware 6.0 so it is easy to determine if other equipment is still in sync, with an accuracy of 1/100 of a frame.
While smaller units were always marked by a prefix such as Tiny or Nano, the ACN-CL proudly carries the name “Lockit” and it wouldn’t do so without supplying both timecode and sync signals. Designed for today’s equipment it supports 1080P and 1080i genlock for project rates 23.976 to 60 FPS while audio recorders are covered with wordclock up to 192 KHz.
Dual Lemo output connections provide maximum flexibility and continued use of available cables. TC in and out follow the industry standard and allow for syncing of two cameras in parallel or jamming via a cable while leaving the synced unit connected. The primary output carries timecode and genlock/wordclock. This gives you the freedom to choose running it either on straight, Y-split cable or two separate leads using the second connector for timecode which also connects to devices that support ACN for metadata transfer.
External power and charging are available through a common USB-C port. Connected to a Mac or PC the Lockit transforms into a MIDI timecode interface without additional configuration and allows for deep level editing of the settings. The sync LED is now full RGB so different colors are available for status indication. All of this and more is fitted in a compact solid aluminum case.
