Professional Dry-Erase Production Slate Clapperboard Marker
A clapperboard is a device used in filmmaking and video production to assist in the synchronizing of picture and sound, and to designate and mark particular scenes or takes recorded during a production. The sharp "clap" noise that the clapperboard makes can be identified easily on the audio track, and the shutting of the clapstick can be identified easily on the separate visual track. The two tracks can then be precisely synchronised by matching the sound and movement.
Other names for the clapperboard include clapper, clapboard, slate, slate board, slapperboard, sync slate, time slate, sticks, board, and sound marker. This clapperboard is made from durable acrylic and features color sticks for aid in quick color adjustment. The sticks have magnetic inserts to insure a smart "clack" and will also keep them from opening when not in use. There are blank sections that can be written on with wet or dry erase markers signifying the Take, Scene, Roll, Production, Director, Camera, Date Night, Int/Ext Mos Filter and Sync. Slate is compatible with dry-Erase brand markers and water based markers. (Not Included with Purchase) Rear of slate is blank.
