The Ambient NanoLockit Timecode Generator lets you generate timecode at all framerates using the built-in Real Time Clock (RTC), or jam-sync other units by feeding in external timecode via the 5-pin LEMO connector. Syncing up is a one button experience as the unit self-configures and the framerate is set automatically when jammed.


Timecode and metadata are transmitted via the proprietary 2.4 GHz, ACN long-range radio network, making the unit compatible with all other ACN Lockit devices. Power is provided externally via the micro-USB port or by the rechargeable battery, which provides 35+ hours of operation on a full charge. With its sturdy aluminum body and locking LEMO connector, the NanoLockit is well equipped to withstand the prolonged rigors of on-set use.


Generate timecode using built-in Real Time Clock, or feed in external timecode via the LEMO port to jam-sync other units. The timecode output level adjustable for timecode on audio track with non-timecode equipment such as DSLRs. The drift per day is less than 1 frame in autonomous mode – zero drift with active C-Jam master in ACN. All timecode framerates are supported.
