The New FDC A2 Timecode Generator Display and Slate
You can expect to see the new products and prices to trickle into our web-store over the next couple days.
New Brighter LED Display
We have new LEDs so bright even the lowest setting can be seen in direct mid-day sunlight! Even with the brighter LEDs 4 AA Enelope Pro rechargeable batteries still lasts 12 hours at maximum brightness and 30 hours at minimum brightness with the display in constant on.
All Metal Design
Both slate panels and enclosure for the new display are 6061 Aluminum with type III hard anodizing. The panel includes an integrated back handle. An added bonus is the 1/4" jack commonly used in guitars, could this reduce the frequency of dropped slates? One can hope!
This new enclosure is IP66 weatherproff, with a better seal than the previous 3D printed verison.
We have available a compact panel and a standard size panel options available. Both panels include the dry erase-able abrasion resistant plexiglass.
The clapper sticks are the same as the all our other slates. The clapper sticks can also be flipped around, though we recommend that you order extra decals to add to the other side.
Edge Lit Panel
One of the most requested feature, we are also working on a way to light the panel for dark scenes. the edge lit panel for the new slate, is in early testing. Looking into adding LEDs to light the clapper sticks as well. This will be probably be available sometime December-January. Edge lit panels will not be coming for the MRE or M2 slates, since both of those slates split the writing surface it makes the edge lighting cost prohibitive (You may as well switch over to the new slate design).
