As all Ambient Clockit devices the »Lockit Slate« provides a rock solid, highly accurate, temperature compensated time code generator.
»Double the brightness with 2 cells less and still longer battery life« The completely revised LED time code display features double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor. Therefore we could reduce the batteries to only 4 AA cells and still achieve a prolonged battery life.Additionally we 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.
»Transmit the clapped time directly to the script app«
Furthermore our new 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.

»Use the Lockit Slate as Midi TC display and interface«
In addition, it also offers a variable time code offset to compensate for processing delays of digital cameras. Plugged in into a computer, the Lockit Slate transforms into a highly accurate Midi time code interface with LTC / Midi time code conversion and of course big TC LED display. This way the ACN-LS opens up the possibility to sync for examples multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation. As known from the Lockit and Tiny Lockit, the user interface is easy and intuitive to use.
»Use the display standalone as fully functional Tiny Lockit«
Thanks to an all new and revolutionary modular construction, the electronic section of the Lockit Slate can also serve as a fully functional, compact standalone display for documentary or desktop use. Housed in a machined, pearl blasted and anodized aluminum body it can easily withstand the roughest production conditions.
»Never loose the time code when changing batteries...«
Thanks to the built-in Supercap the ACN-LS is able to hold the highly accurate time code for more than 10 minutes after loss of power. Thus changing batteries no longer automatically means to rejam the slate.
»Choose the matching slate body to suite your purse and style«
Interchangeable slate bodies allow for customization and will be made available as easy to swap clapperboards in various sizes, weight, and materials ranging from basic to classy. So, the user will always be able to choose the slate body that suits him best.

The Zaxcom ZFR 300 (Zaxcom Flash Recorder) is the same size as Zaxcom TRXLA2 wireless transmitter and can accept standard lavaliere microphones. A stereo ZFR can accept two lavaliere microphones, or two unbalanced microphone inputs.
The ZFR can be used as an easy way to record ISO tracks on multiple talent with no fears of being out of range or having to deal with RF issues. On power up the ZRF will jam time code via the ZaxNet 2.4Ghz signal and will then start transmitting QC audio with time code within 10 seconds. The built-in ZaxNet transmitter is used for quality control monitoring and can be used as a timecode master to wirelessly jam other recording body pack recorders or recording wireless transmitters. The body packs can optionally re-jam time code every few minutes to maintain sub-frame accurate time code lock. At the end of your shoot you gather each SD memory card from the ZFR and deliver them to post. Post production can then easily drop each ISO track into their non-linear edit system and have a clean timecoded audio track to work with. Recording systems can be as simple as a single ZFR recorder and a single ERX2TCD receiver to wirelessly monitor the audio and time code from the recorder. Any number of ZFR recorders and wireless transmitters can be utilized to form an unlimited virtual multi-track recording system. The advantage of this system is that for production sound it eliminates the limitations of wireless microphones.
