The LockitSlate Take 2 (ACN-LS2) is a highly accurate smart-slate system featuring a unique product design and functionality.
It is the successor to the popular LockitSlate and fully compatible. We kept the construction and dimensions so that accessories or custom made faceplates can seamlessly be used on the new product. Powering is over 4 AA cells, optimized for chargeable NiMH chemistry. This allows for a run time of over 24 hours with the slate open at default brightness. External powering is possible over USB-C. Improved resistance against humidity through lip sealing around LED display.
With its 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.
The LockitSlate offers a variable timecode offset to compensate for processing delays of digital cameras. Plugged into a computer, the LockitSlate transforms into a highly accurate midi timecode interface with LTC / midi timecode conversion and of course big TC LED display. This way the ACN-LS2 opens up the possibility to sync multiple cameras with a Pro Tools workstation.
