What does LANC mean?

LANC, also known as Control-L is a protocol by Sony used to synchronize camcorders and cameras. LANC is a terminal on Sony as well as other manufacturers' camcorders which enables other accessories like Tripods with a control handle to control the camera with a wire connected to a LANC port without dealing with buttons on the camera itself. It is also available on many still cameras, where it is called ACC. The bi-directional protocol is made up of 8 bytes, usually clocked by the camera at 9600 bit/s. Each frame of bytes occurs in sync with the beginning of each video frame. The physical connector is either a 5-pin mini-DIN connector and jack or a 2.5mm 3-conductor phone jack and plug. In newer Sony digital Handycam camcorders with 10-pin multi-A/V remote terminal jacks, LANC is available, but not directly accessible without making a custom/home-made adapter cable or a pre-made cable by Sony Part# J-6082-535-A. Sony RM-AV2 Remote Commander is an example of a LANC controller which plugs into the Sony 10-pin multi-A/V remote terminal jack.
