Ambient Recording Master Lockit ACN-MLAmbient Recording brings six brand new products to NAB 2014. They are Master-Lockit, ACN-BT, LockitScript, Tonmeister, ASF-1, and ACN-LS. The hardware and software created by Ambient Recording is part of the Ambient Clockit Network System – the most powerful and comprehensive on-set metadata system on the market.

Master Lockit ACN-ML is a powerful time code device. It is the flagship of the Ambient Clockit Network System. It delivers ACN features like 0.0ppm drift, generator buffered time code transceiver mode, and more. It has a built in WiFi router that enables iPads running LockitSCRIPT and Tonmeister apps to automatically sync all metadata.

ACN-BT (The Ambient Beetle) is a Bluetooth dongle that adds versatility to ACN-equipped Lockit devices and the Sound Devices 788T. It works as an alternative to the CL-WiFi. When used with a Lockit device, the Beetle enables wireless connectivity between the ACN and iOS devices.

ACN-LS (Lockit Slate) is a modular time code slate and display. It functions as a highly accurate temperature compensated time code generator. The LED display is double the brightness at less than half of the power consumption of its predecessor.

LockitScript is an iOS app that is designed to quickly organize, simplify and edit documentation. It can import and synchronize preps, schedules, and call sheets (via a free-of-charge Ambient LockitScript account). It can import scripts from Final Draft or Adobe Story. Those are just a few of the features that this helpful app offers.

Tonmeister is an app that has comprehensive sound report features. You can import scripts, call sheets, and slate numbers from the LockitScript app or a LockitScript account. There is an optional CL-WiFi plug-in that lets you arm and name tracks, remote stop record, route inputs, outputs and headphones, and much more.

ASF-1 (The Ambient Sound Fish) is an underwater microphone for professional sound recording. It is waterproof up to100m depth and is made of high quality stainless steel. You can find Ambient Recording at booth C544 at NAB 2014.
