The Clockit, called "Lockit" by many, is a small, highly accurate portable timecode and colour videosync and wordclock generator. Audio and video machines such as DAT recorders, and Betacams can be genlocked to the Clockit Box, thus giving a very low drift between equipment working together. Typically, the drift will be less than 1 frame per day, without connecting cables or radio links. The Clockit can be jamsynced with external timecode, or set with Aaton ASCII code. The Clockit is especially useful in multicamera Betacam shoots, where a Clockit on each camera and one on the audio recorder will reduce drift between machines to under one frame a day.
The Ambient ACL 203 Tri-Level Sync Lockit Set is a time code device designed for use with HDV cameras. It supports a variety of HD video formats, as well as sample-rate-based synching for audio recorders in world clock and black audio up to 192KHz. The unit features (3) rotary encoders that control function blocks, sync format, sync frequency, and time-code frame rate. These controls allow for simple dialing even with exotic variants of pull-up/pull-down or cross jam modes.
The Ambient Controller is an extremely accurate portable master clock and timecode generator/reader. It can can be used to jam, read, identify, and compare all timecodes. All framerates are supported and the frame rate can be changed without losing time of day, enabling a camera running at 24 frames, and a recorder running at 25 or 30 frames to be jamsynced.
Ambient Recording's Quickpole Xtra Light Boom is made from the industry's strongest, stiffest carbon fiber tubing; the boom is excellent for achieving lengths of over 13' and does not tighten in cold or wet climates. Tubing has a 1.5 mm thickness that is lightweight but offers very low transmission noise when the boom is handled. At the tip is a machined, stainless steel 3/8" thread. Secure screw locks and an internal spacer enhance the boom's safety features. The Quickpole Boom can be easily disassembled for cleaning.
Built around a powerful ARM processor the Lanc Logger was designed to fit unobtrusively onto even the smallest consumer grade cameras.
Due to the increased use of record run timecode when recording sound on DAT recorders, and the need to display this code in front of the camera, Ambient has developed the 'Master Radio Slate'.
