  1. Dear Ambient friends, today we proudly introduce to you our latest development – the NanoLockit! Visit http://www.nanolockit.com for more details Continuing the 25 year history of Lockit boxes, the NanoLockit redefines the on-set timecode sync box. Since the release of the original Lockit, Ambient has never had a reputation for standing still – and we are proud to live up to our reputation with the NanoLockit. It extends the existing timecode product range and caters to the latest developments in camera technology and on-set workflow. Your Ambient Team
  2. Just picked up a Master Lockit a couple weeks ago and shot this on my phone. Finally posted it. Please excuse the poor quality of the video! Been using the Master Lockit on a few jobs already and very pleased!
  3. Dear sound community, As timecode and sync technology is our passion, for many years we wanted to develop easily accessible, short-subject educational videos that break down and explain these modern production elements. Ambient University provides the information and instruction for low budget productions as well as the most sophisticated setups all around the world. Our videos about timecode and synchronization provide in-depth background information, while other videos demonstrate how to use that knowledge in the field. This video library includes step-by-step tutorial video
  4. http://www.betso.eu/files/documents/BETSO_SBOX-1_brochure_EN.pdf I was figuring out where to place my Ambient Lockit on a C300 for an upcoming project, then this comes along. Looks the ticket, small, lightweight..
  5. I'm a big fan of the BETSO SBOX-1N, and I have two of them (they've replaced two Mozegear boxes I had previously.) I'm currently working on a doc with a partner, who owns the same box, and we're a bit puzzled because his box blinks very rapidly, while mine blinks once per second. Both keep time without a problem, and they stay synced through the whole day, but we can't understand why his box doesn't blink once a second after it's been jammed, like mine. We've looked at the settings, and they're both exactly the same. We're at a loss… Any comments or suggestions you may have w

  7. Dear Ambient Recording friends,we are happy to welcome another key player of our industry as new member to our ACN™ family. With the integration of RED Digital Cinema cameras into our metadata system, we now are able to provide camera information to script and post from the two most popular cinema camera manufacturers. Furthermore, syncing RED cameras with an ACL 204 now is plug-and-play. Additionally, we are proud to present the first manufacturer that has integrated the ACN OEM module, and to introduce great new accessories for the popular ACN-LS digi slate.Please visit us on IBC Hall 8C73 a
  8. Hey everyone, I'm curious to see if anyone is using the new Master Lockit to feed continuous jam to the Nomad in the sound bag, and whether or not the Master Lockit's own 2.4ghz transmission to other ACN lockits onset are causing interference with various zaxnet commands, given that they'd be physically so close together in the bag? Cheers! Eren
  9. Syncing Mad Max - Fury Road I had the pleasure to do an interview with Ben Osmo, Production Sound Mixer and Oliver Machin, Sound Department Coordinator & Vehicle FX Recordist about their work on Mad Max - Fury Road in the desert of Nambia, Africa. Three units with up to 12 cameras worked simultaniously, sometimes up to 7km (4.35 mi.) away from each other while driving with 60-90 km/h (37- 56 mph). The air filled with desert sand containing metallic parts that drastically decreased wireless range, while the VFX dpt wanted the camera to use the UTC time information from the GPS satellites t

  13. Hi Everyone, I want to introduce our company MozeGear and announce our first product. MozeGear is a new U.S. company formed to design and manufacture unique audio products specifically for the television and film industry.

Highlights of TIG’s feature list are: Miniature size (similar to a dollar bill folded in half) Accurate & high quality TCXO Sturdy anodized aluminum case with a hinged battery door Variable level output NEW FEATURE, “Flow Through Audio” combines audio and timecode by putting timecode on
  14. Hi everybody, as promised: You talk, we listen. We manufactured a free of charge upgrade kit for the ACN-LS to enable for one handed operation and add customizable friction to the sticks. The hardware mod will be done or organized by your local dealer. It is only a 5-10 minutes operation and the kits are either already at your local dealer or on their way. All ACN-LS slates sold now, are of course already equipped with the upgrade. Please watch the quick and dirty video to learn about the details: http://vimeo.com/98522035 Thank you Timo
  15. So I have been following very closely the development of that miracle 'all together' metadata protocol from various companies, and after the release of the new products from Ambient, TimecodeBuddy and Denecke, i believe a discussion is in order, hopefully even with a bit of input from the manufacturers themselves. So firstly we have a the TimecodeBuddy system. Some of you already using it, and apparently quite robust (900mhz and 2.4g transmission). Now they partnered with MovieSlate and Denecke. I love the fact that you can send metadata to the slate and other MovieSlate apps, but I don't
  16. TIG Timecode Generator Durability Test I love durability tests and think they are so much fun. So we decided to do a video showing the TIG (timecode generator) being driven over by a truck and dropped off the back. It survived very well (especially considering we drove over it about 20 times and dropped it over 30.) So here's a TIG and a truck: https://plus.google.com/112281036772159173979/posts Laurie 480-292-9060 lauriew@mozegear.com www.mozegear.com
  17. Finally! It's been announced for a while and we are happy that we now are ready to release it: The MAC updater for Lockits and Tiny Lockits. Additionally we aligned the different firmwares so that one updater tool will work for all recent and upcoming network ready products. Obviously, it took us longer than we expected and we hope that the new features now also available for Mac users will compensate for the latency. Get your firmware 3.11 now and add powerful new features to your devices. Firmware download page http://vimeo.com/71959025
  18. Three New Products at IBC 2013 Lockit Slate - Lockit Script App - QS-Mini This was the IBC, again. Time moves fast when you are busy, and our last year just passed at lightning speed. After one year of extensive development we would like to present the latest results of our work. With the new Lockit Slate and Lockit Script App as well as the integration of our time code in the Adobe Prelude live logger app we continue to upgrade our time code series to the newest Ambient Clockit Network technology. Whereas the QS-Mini boompole brings our premium range to customers who prefer shor
  19. Hey all, Getting into timecode and worried about whether I'm totally #$@%i@ things up or not. Followed and what a few mixers have told me (and searching on JW a bit) have told me that I could jam from the recorder to the camera and that it should be fine. Without a lockit box. However, the Alexa manual is kind of brief and doesn't mention this particular activity of the timecode. What I want to know is what the blinking Alexa TC means. After I jam from the recorder it (it being the TC numbers/digits) stays solid for awhile, but then goes back to blinking again. This rec
  20. http://vimeo.com/71959025 With firmware 3.1 for the Tiny Lockit and the Lockit we added a few exceedingly powerful features. "Use your Lockit to send the camera time code to your recorder without the fear of wireless dropouts!" The new software integrates a TC transceiver mode to the units using the already existing ACN network hardware. So without additional equipment your Lockit is now a fully functional time code transmitter or receiver. Thanks to the internal generator running in the background, TC dropouts are a relic of the past. "No need to tune your Lockits with the rental o
  21. Dear owners of a new ACL204, A new firmware update version 1.02.0011 is out now. We fixed all bugs you and us found while working with the new Lockit. V. 1.01.0008 04/13/2012 Added: Userbit menu: GEN>UB: JamUB: normal (userbits are taken from ext. TC when jamming) manual (userbits are not overwritten when jamming from external, so a date can be set etc.) insert (userbits can be inserted on the fly without re-jamming. TC jamming still dependent on TC jam mode) EditUB: manual setting of userbits. V. 1.02.0010 05/11/2012 fix: tuning via ACC101 now works. fix: drop frame after r
  22. @AmbientRec I just took a swift snapshot of the first ACM-204 Lockit Mount before I disassembled it again, to ship it to Redding Audio USA. The ACM-204 can be screwed to your aluminum Lockit within seconds (4screws). For anybody not owning one of the new anniversary edition Lockits, don't be disappointed, The ACM-TL will be shipped soon, too. It will be delivered with screws for the Tiny Lockit and an adhere tape to be fixed to all your other Clockit devices. Why not screwing, too? That's because we are using self-cutting screws for our plastic bodies. Thus, unscrewing th
  23. Happy birthday to you! 20 years Lockit!! We celebrate this event with an extraordinary limited aluminum special edition and new accessories... A good 20 years ago Guenter Knon worked for the German candid camera TV show. After countless episodes he was getting tired of lining up the Nagras and cameras in the morning each and every day. So he and Chris Price sat down together and after one year and several prototypes the first ACL Lockit was born. In the following 20 years this fellow became more and more famous and reproductive. Thus it rapidly became the head of the well-known
  24. We are happy to announce that from 27th of July at 12 a.m. UMT+2 the new firmware update 2.0 can be downloaded from our homepage. It features the first part of the Ambient Clockit Network functionality. Attention: The ACL204 is already equipped with an internal antenna. Therefore no additional accessory is needed to get full access to all features. With the “ACN Basic” integrated in this firmware the user is able to jam sync all ACN compatible devices within the network. To gain the best possible range 16 network channels are available as well as variable output power. One ACL204 is
