Reedsburg, WI (July 15, 2016)—Sound Devices and Ambient Recording products can now work together to provide wireless remote control and enhanced workflow functionality for Sound Devices’ 6-Series mixer/recorders.
With its latest firmware updates, Sound Devices’ 6-Series mixer/recorders and Ambient Recording’s ACN network system can deliver remote transport control, metadata editing and timecode functionality. All Sound Devices 6-Series mixer/recorders—633, 664 and 688—can be remote controlled by Ambient Recording’s Master Lockit web interface, while ingesting metadata into the ACN network system.
This collaboration integrates Sound Devices’ 6-Series products into the ACN with continuous jam and zero-drift timecode. The new Remote tab in the Master Lockit web interface provides wireless control of the most important mixer/recorder functions, including record start/stop, track naming, track arming, metadata entry for the current and upcoming clip, and more. Audio professionals may control any 6-Series by directly connecting the Ambient ACN-ML Master Lockit to the mixer’s USB port, or through the USB keyboard port on a Sound Device’s optional 6-Series accessory, the CL-12 linear fader controller.
The Master Lockit is the control center of the ACN timecode and metadata network. Acting as the network central hub, it enables remote control of all ACN units on set via browser on any WiFi capable device. In addition, it collects all metadata from script, continuity, and professional cameras for delivery and use by DITs and post production.
Sound Devices firmware v3.10 upgrade for the 6-Series mixers/recorders and Ambient Recording’s ACN-ML Firmware 4.1 are now available as free downloads.
