Sehr geehrter Herr Hörmann

Days are getting short again and leaves turn a vibrant red. Autumn is here, marking the start of the new indoor season. But instead of singing the blues, we prefer to present our latest products for the ProAVM sector as well as for musicians at a rapid rhythm.
We open up with the DMXV TrussLink Stagebox!
Not only audio but also DMX signals need a summary via stagebox in some cases. Especially for this purpose we now offer our digital DMXV stagebox. As expected from the TrussLink series, in an extremely robust design for floor use or rig mounting. The DMXV is available as 8 or 12 channel stagebox in various 5p. XLR / 25p. RMP connector configurations.
For digital audio signals in studios or theatres, our popular OmniTrans installation cable OT234... is a top choice. Due to the generous conductor cross-section and double shielding, signals are transmitted reliably and free of interference even over long distances.
We are proud to announce that we are now an official assembler for cable products with the opticalCON QUAD. This high tech connector allows the transmission of high data rates on extended transmission runs and is practical in handling, robust as well as easy to clean. A worthy addition to our vast range of FiberOptic connectors.
From 18 to 20 October, the LEaT con exhibition will open its gates in Hamburg.
This brand-new trade fair especially for the event industry is the ideal platform for technical planners, FOH technicians, creative designers and stage builders to exchange ideas and experiences. This meeting of the who's who of the entertainment industry is something we're not going to miss.
The Guitar Summit is back!
The guitar event of the year finally took place again in Mannheim in September.
After a much too long break, guitars, gear, workshops and masterclasses were back. Read our review to find out why this year's Summit was a great success, not just for KLOTZ AIS.

With kind regards
KLOTZ DMXV TrussLink Stagebox
TrussLink DMX Stageboxes with XLR 5p. sockets - parallel wired

Not only audio signals but also DMX signals often have to be combined via stagebox in professional use. The DMXV TrussLink Stagebox series by KLOTZ is specially designed for this purpose.
The lightweight but extremely robust aluminum housing is powder-coated black and features abrasion-resistant laser engraving. It accommodates 8 or 12 channels and RMP multipin connectors to MIL-C-5015 standard. The paired Neutrik® XLR 5p. chassis jacks with hard gold-plated contacts can be used as input or output. Maximum flexibility is offered by the 12 channel version DMXV-04FM, which provides 8 channels with XLR 5p. and 4 channels with XLR 3p. sockets. Thus, in addition to the 8 DMX channels via XLR 5p., 4 channels can also be used for DMX via XLR 3p., AES/EBU or analog microphone and line audio signals.
TrussLink stage boxes of the DMXV series can be used both on the floor and in the rig. For this purpose, the housing is equipped with non-slip rubber feet, an M10 thread on the bottom and four eyelets for safety ropes.

KLOTZ OmniTrans digital
KLOTZ OmniTRANS low loss AES/EBU (DMX) installation cable

This stable and ultra-rugged cable is at home in installations. Its large conductor cross-section of 0.34 mm² contributes to its extra-low signal attenuation, making it ideal for smooth long-distance transmission of analogue and digital audio signals and DMX control signals.
The cable features dual shielding, with an AI-PET foil and an extra-densely braided copper shield with 85-percent screening. The outer FRNC jacket is halogen-free and flame-retardant.

KLOTZ FiberOptic
Wir sind offizieller opticalCON QUAD assembler

The KLOTZ AIS FiberOptic range offers professional solutions for audio, video, lighting and network signal transmission. After we already have acquired the status as official assembler for Dragonfly- and SMPTE- camera connectors as well as the SmartBeam connector for the transmission of high data rates, we have now also received the certificate as official opticalCON QUAD assembler.
The opticalCON QUAD cable connector with four optical SM PC channels enables high data rates of 10 Gbit/s over up to 10,000 m (single mode) or up to 300 m (multimode). The robust metal housing encloses a connector with four optical multimode, single-mode PC or single-mode APC channels, based on LC technology. Further practice-oriented features are the proven push-pull locking and a very efficient strain relief.
The opticalCON QUAD connector is now available on KLOTZ FiberLink optical cables F4US33A (single-mode) and F4UM33A (multimode).

Guitar Summit review

On September 9th, after a three-year break, the Guitar Summit opened its doors in Mannheim again - round 4, even for us!
It was already clear on Friday afternoon that the event would be a great success.
Considering that mainly guitarists visit the Summit, with about 9400 visitors, even our expectations were far exceeded. The feedback was outstanding from all directions.
We were particularly pleased that many KLOTZ artists were on site, held workshops and master classes, played concerts and still found time to shoot one or two advertising trailers for our brand - in addition to all the gear and small talk.
Many thanks to the outstanding and always cheerful artists of the #KLOTZfamily:
Jeff Loomis - guitarist for Arch Enemy and others
Jon Gomm - fingerstyle guitarist
Gus G. - Firewind and ex Ozzy Osbourne guitarist
Henrik Lindner - bassist of the Swedish band Dirty Loops
Jen Majura - ex Evanescence guitarist
Alex Scholpp - guitarist for Tarja Turunen, Farmer Boys, etc.
Janek Pentz - fingerstyle guitarist
Nico Schliemann - guitarist for Glasperlenspiel
Martin Miller - "Martin Miller Session Band"
Matthias Degener - guitarist for Axxis
Henrik Freischlader - "Henrik Freischlader Band"
Marcus Deml - "Errorhead"
Bobby Keller - ex Meka Nism guitarist
And many more...
At this Summit mostly our TITANIUM guitar and microphone cables were used, whereas Jeff Loomis and Jen love our Joe Bonamassa signature cable. The passive KLOTZ DX10 DI box was also in great demand and was used on all stages.
Our conclusion: see you next year - for sure!!!
