Ambient Recording ACN-NL-L NanoLockit Miniature Timecode Synchronizer with Record Function (2 Pack)

The ACN-NL-L NanoLockit Miniature Timecode Synchronizer with Record Function (2-pack) is the smallest member of the Lockit family. Its form factor and intuitive operation make it a good timecode solution for everyone from mobile teams with small cameras to large movie sets.

Main characteristics

  • Highly accurate timecode generator
  • Logging function included
  • Less than 1 frame drift per day in standalone mode, zero drift with active C-Jam master in ACN
  • Supports all TC frame rates
  • Full ACN support

Since the introduction of firmware version 6.30, the NanoLockit can now also be used as a recorder. This feature was designed for content creators, directors, and filmmakers. With the NanoLockit recorder, you can mark good and bad clips directly on set. There is a button for “good grip” and a button for “bad grip”. It has been designed in this way to allow the greatest simplicity of intuitive use.

Using the log feature is a big advantage because you don’t need to waste time sorting out good and bad clips. You simply connect the NanoLockit Logger to your computer via USB after shooting. With one click, you can import the logs as markers into your editing software.

The Ambient Communication Network (ACN) is Ambient’s own wireless network that connects all of the Lockit boxes on set. It was designed to be a stable and interference resistant radio network without Bluetooth or WiFi. This makes the connection independent of disturbing radiation, bad networks or adverse weather conditions.

ACN is the reason Ambient One-button sync reduces on-set setup time at the touch of a button. You press the green button on one of the Lockits or NanoLockits for three seconds, and through the use of ACN, all other Lockit devices (in the same ACN channel) are synchronized in terms of TC settings and frequency pictures. This initial synchronization already guarantees the accuracy of the image for the whole day.

All important functions can be controlled via the buttons. So there is no need for an additional application. The NanoLockit can either start directly with the built-in real-time clock or be fed with external timecode via the LEMO-compatible plug-in connection. Even syncing a complex setup is literally a single button press with the NanoLockit.
