The Ambient PowerLockit is a combined power distribution, time code, and tri-level sync box and metadata recorder with support for ARRI and RED cameras as well as Zeiss CP3 xD and Cooke /i3 lenses.. It dramatically reduces the number of boxes and cable clutter on a typical camera setup and its fully-automatic configuration make it simple to set-up.
TIME CODE AND TRI-LEVEL SYNC GENERATOR On set, the PowerLockit supplies sub frame accurate timecode and genlock to every camera. This enables post-production to auto-conform the clips within a professional editing tool using time code as reference – saving hours of work with just one mouse click.
PLUG & PLAY By attaching the appropriate breakout cable, the PowerLockit will auto-configure its sync settings to fit the respective camera. Within the ACN, project framerates are wirelessly synchronized across the whole set.
METADATA RECORDER The PowerLockit is able to record camera and lens metadata of supported devices, provides the information automatically with 3rd party tools in real time via WiFi – such as the LockitScript App for script supervisors or Pomfort Live Grade.
