In Virtual Production environments the cameras film a huge LED screen. To ensure a flicker-free image it is crucial that the camera and the screen are in perfect sync.
However, the LED backdrops in Virtual Production studios are always some frames behind the “Studio Master Clock” due to processing delay of the virtual production server. Using our Lockit Family you can handle that problem.
In this setup our Lockit+ has been started up as TX Master (learn more about the TX Mode here), accepting the external TC signal from the Studio Master Clock.
The Lockit+ broadcasts Timecode and Sync through ACN (Ambient Communication Network) to all other Lockits.
Using the display menu – or in this case the Lockit+ Web Interface - we now can step-by-step adjust the offset until the cameras are perfectly in sync with the LED wall.
Important information about the LockitSlate: The offset time code is displayed on the front LED display.
