Introducing The Ambient Lockit+


For over 30 years, Ambient Timecode has been synonymous with precision and reliability. Like the Lockit, the Lockit+ provides all timecode and Sync formats and full ACN compatibility.

We called it Lockit+ because of its modular design and the many added values.

The Lockit+ combines the state of the art, high-accuracy Ambient Lockit Timecode and Sync technology with advanced metadata management options to improve your workflow between set and editing.

It’s the successor of both the MasterLockit and MasterLockitPlus. A lot of user input has gone into further development to make the Lockit+ the true flagship of the Lockit family

The Power of Plus

It’s a highly accurate Timecode and Sync Generator

+ Modular Hardware designed to be elegantly operated both from the sound cart and sound bag

The Lockit+ is designed to serve different situations on set or in the studio. With the Standard Extension it can be elegantly operated both from the sound cart and sound bag. In future there will be different extensions available. 

+ WiFi Access for advanced control and monitoring

The built-in server spans a local WiFi, giving users browser-based access to all the Lockit+ features via mobile device or computer. The web interface gives access to advanced generator settings and monitoring of all Lockit devices within the ACN.

+ Frequency Scanning

Plug the separately available antenna into a USB port of the Lockit+ to perform a full frequency scan. In the web interface you get concrete suggestions for available frequencies for your transmitters and receivers.

+ Metadata Hub between cameras and our LockitScript App

The Lockit+ can extract technical metadata from compatible cameras to broadcast it via WiFi to the Ambient LockitScript App for script supervisors.

+ Frame-accurate lens metadata processing for Cooke /i protocol

The Lockit+ stores key Cooke /i lens metadata frame-accurately in an open file format – at the same time it makes the data accessible live via WiFi or Ethernet.

+ Remote Control for Sound Devices 6 and 7 series recorders

+ More Connectors

While the front of the Lockit+ offers the same two outputs you know from the Lockit (Blue TC & ACN Connector / Yellow TC & Sync Connector) – the Standard Extension provides additional connections for different setups. In total the Lockit+ with Standard Extension has:

  • 2x Blue TC & ACN Connector
  • 1x Yellow TC & Sync Connector
  • USB-A connector (Frequency Scanning Antenna)
  • USB-C connector (Camera Metadata / Powering)
  • USB-C connector for Midi TC
  • Hirose (Powering)

+ Flexible Powering

The Lockit+ can be powered by 6 to 24 Volts DC via a Hirose 4-pin connector or via the USB-C socket. 

It is also possible to run the Lockit+ only with the two included BX1 batteries. In basic operation the batteries will last for up to 4 hours.

Sound recordist Thomas Rex Beverly describes his groundbreaking work in one of the world’s most awe-inspiring wildernesses, Greenland. 

“I assumed they would make some sounds, but they were surprising in a whole lot of ways. They sing, and I find it amazing. They are like slow motion thunderstorms, and you can’t help but be awed if you get to witness their beauty and natural power first hand.”
