Sale continued until May 30th!

Thank You Cassie Cultists!

Your response to our 50% off all software sale was so fantastic, we will continue it until May 30, 2018. We've added a bunch of Bogart 10 for Windows users this month and want to add even more so they can spread the good word about Bogart for Windows. Up to now it has been the world's best kept secret. But now that it is ready for prime time, it will grow fast with marketing, and your continued support.



The Casablanca 4 Turn-Key Systems with the new fast Intel i7-7700 processor are still on sale while quantities last. Save $500 on the Studio Pro Ultra, $400 on the Saphir2, and $200 on the Meteor Pro Ultra. Plus, trade-ins are accepted on these 3 models. There are only 2 of each model left on this sale, so hurry! http://www.macrosystem.us/

Contact your dealer for both of these limited time and quantity offers. If you do not have one, here is a list of Value Added Resellers: http://www.macrosystem.us/Value_Added_Resellers.php

This will be our last newsletter before the Memorial Holiday. If you have lost someone in service to our country, our thoughts and prayers will be with you and yours, who made the ultimate sacrifice!

Thank You!

New Beta Testing Opportunity!


It's that time again! We are looking for a few good software beta testers!  This is a prestigious opportunity to be part of a great internal testing team, get sneak peeks at upcoming software before the public for free, and learn a whole lot of new things.  With the advancements of version 10 for Bogart SE and the Bogart 10 for Windows, we will continue to improve the operating systems and review upcoming Add On programs. 

We are looking for users that already own the Bogart Windows software. Owning both Bogart Windows and the Bogart SE that runs on the standalone models is preferred, but not required.  We are seeking someone who knows the Casablanca products well; owns a PC running Windows 7 Premium or higher; and who has lots of extra time to be an active tester.   We are most interested in those who have enough time to be able to test and report findings up to 3 times a week.

For inquires or to request our Tester Application Form, please contact me by email at justin@macrosystem.us. Or if you are registered to our Casablanca forum please send a PM to JustinPhilpott.  We will provide and accept applications up until 7/1/18 for this position.  After the application period, we'll interview the most qualified new candidates for the chance to join our testing team ranks.

50% Off ALL SW - $200 to 500 Off Casablanca 4's


2018 has been a huge year for the Casablanca and Macrosystem Americas, LLC, and it only figures to get better. This year we have released Bogart 10 for Windows and Linux, Windows Pro Pack, Time-X, and we have a professional Picture in Picture program in development. We now have over 200 programs for Windows, Linux, and Smart Edit; and all of them are on sale for 50% off until May 17, 2018.

To get the 50% off you must spend at least $350 for at least $700 worth of retail software. In other words, add up all the software you want, and you only pay half price (if you pay at least $350). If you are just starting out with Bogart for Windows, we would recommend Bogart 10 Gold for Windows, Windows Pro Pack, Time-X, Arabesk 7, and Disk Juggler for $372.50 (normally $745).  And you can add as many titles as you want to this, and just pay 50% off retail pricing. We have never seen prices this low in our 17 years, so now would be the time to load up.

To qualify for the deal of the century:

1)      Complete the sale by May 17, 2018. Sorry, there are no exceptions!

2)      This offer cannot be combined with any other offers or bundles or deals.

3)      Pay at least $350 for at least $700 worth of Software. You are certainly welcome to pay $1000 for $2000 worth of SW, or even better $2K for $4K, etc., etc..

4)      You cannot mix serial numbers in the same transaction. You can do as many transactions as you want, but each one must be the same SN#, and over $350 to qualify.

5)      If you use the same serial later during the sale, you will need to pay at least $350 to qualify for the 50% off again. (This is a per transaction deal). Time is money!

Our hardware and software allow you to make 2 to 6 times more money than your competitor. Video edits can be done 2 to 6 times faster in Bogart, because all the repetitive tasks are located on the top level, and not buried deep in sub-menus.  Here is how to spend a little to make a lot:





Our Casablanca 4 turnkey video edit systems have a new high-end model called the Casablanca 4 Saphir 2. It boasts an Intel Kaby Lake i7-7700 processor, 2 Hard Drives: 240Gb Solid State Drive for fast boot-ups and operations, and a 6 TB Hard Drive for all your Video and Audio, 2 DVD/Blu-ray burners, and 32Gb of DDR4 Ram. And even better, it is on sale for $400 off, while quantities last. The Casablanca 4 Meteor Pro Ultra, and Studio Pro Ultra have been upgraded to the Intel Kaby Lake i7-7700 processor and are on sale for $200 and $500 OFF, respectively! These high-end units come with a pretty good set of software, so don¬ít buy something in the SW Sale you already get with them. Click the link below, and then select the models for a list of the included software:



All information and sales are through our Value Added Reseller network. They all edit daily on our gear and know it better than we do. If you do not have a VAR, you can pick from this list:

Season Greetings From MacroSystem Americas LLC


 Sorry for the delay in writing! We have been busy with a slew of new killer products, which we didn’t get finished this year.

We checked with our 12 Value Added Resellers, and many of them are staying around for the Holidays, and working the work days in-between the holidays. Se we decided to do a last-minute end of year sale, so you can have some more cool tools, stocking stuffers, and tax write-offs.

Our VAR’s in these states will be open: Rhode Island (18th to 22nd and the 26th-31st), New Jersey, Ohio, Missouri, Florida, and Arizona. The others may too, we just didn’t hear back from them in 24 hours. Click here for the VARs http://www.macrosystem.us/Value_Added_Resellers.php

The biggest Tax Write-Offs are the Casablanca 4 Turn-Key Editing Systems. They all come with a good set of software, but until New Year’s Eve, they come with any two software titles of choice. This is worth up to $499. Order early enough this week, and it could ship this week, and next week for sure. The 8 new models start at $2299 and go up to $5499, and we offer trade-ins as well. Click here

Last but not least, Bogart 9 for Windows or the Standalones is 20% OFF through New Year’s Eve, and Arabesk 7 as well. You can read all about its features, advantages, and benefits here, and watch the video: http://www.macrosystem.us/Bogart_9_for_Windows_and_Linux.php 

Bogart WinPro is coming early next year and runs on Bogart Windows 9. It speeds up many tasks extensively: Import, decoding, encoding, circular aperture, wipe, soft aperture, double exposure, color bezel, crossfade, hide, fade-in, image corrections, color corrections, zoom, and MX Creator (new add-on SW).

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

Spring Sale and New Products

Hello Cassienauts,

Sorry for the delay in writing, but we have been busy at MacroSystem getting some great products ready for market. We now have a very powerful laptop called the Casablanca 4 Travel Pro. It boasts the very fast Intel i-7 6700HQ Skylake processor, and the Nvidia 965M GPU, which will speed up edits too. When on the road, you can plug the HDMI output into the hotels HDTV and edit on a large screen if the 17.3-inch Travel Pro display is not large enough.

The laptops used to have to go to Germany for service, but now we service everything in the US. Only 1 of over 200 Casablanca 4’s we sold ever required service, so it was never an issue anyway.

It has almost been 2 years since we first introduced our PC based Casablanca 4 line, and it has been a tremendous success. Not only are they the most reliable systems ever produced by MacroSystem, they are way faster! The final Generation 3 Karat model used to be the fastest, but now we are seeing up to a 50% improvement in edit time on Gen 4.

Weddings edits that took most people 16 hours on the Karat, are now doable in an 8-hour day. So, you can either double your earnings, or double your time off; with our $2999 or higher models. The lower priced models would be faster than the Karat by about 25%.

Most computers do not have video cards to capture the old formats like composite video, and S-video. We now have a plug and play USB capture device with software, that adds this convenience for $149. It also is included free with purchase of our Travel Pro during our Spring Sale, which ends June 19:


All of our systems are on sale at the link above. Some models have nearly $2000 in savings when you count the $500 discount, the trade-in value discount (if applicable), and the pick any 2 pieces of free add-on software. For instance, selecting Quad Cam 2 ($399) and Elastic Dreams ($249) would be a savings of $648. We even have a pick any 10 add-on software titles bundle for $999.

We have also been busy making many sales and training videos. In fact, there are 5 videos on how to do a quick wedding edit!  You can watch them all here:  http://www.macrosystem.us/Product_Videos.php

All our Casablanca 4 Systems include 8 hours of the Casablanca Expert’s online classes for free. We also throw this in on a Bogart 8 Gold software only purchase too. It is a great resource, which insures your success. Bogart on Windows does so much more than it did on the Linux Operating System. Many people ASSUME if they can operate a generation 3 machine, they can operate a Gen 4, but they are really missing out on all the new features, advantages, and benefits of the greatest editing system on the planet. Chet did a fantastic job of organizing the 45 classes by each button in the Bogart and Arabesk software menus. That way you can quickly get your how-to info, and get back to work.

All of our products are available exclusively from our Value Added Resellers. Many have been VARs for nearly 20 years, and use our products daily to make their own productions. Their accumulated knowledge about our software and video production is vast, and if they do not know an answer, they can quickly get it from us.   http://www.macrosystem.us/Value_Added_Resellers.php

One of our great value added resellers has a very good deal for you. But there is only one, so first come first served. One of their customers just bought a brand-new Casablanca 4 Studio with a lot of extra SW and HW. They only had it for the weekend, and then something came up and they needed their money back. We set it up ourselves and thoroughly tested it, so it will have a full 1-year factory warranty from us, and you will save over $700. For all the details call or email: Interactive Learning Systems, Nancy Anderson, nancy@ilsvideo.com, or 800-221-6322.

Happy New Year!


Hello Cassie Cultists,

Happy New Year to you all! We wish you all the best in 2107 and beyond!!

What a year it promises to be for MacroSystem. Not only do we have many new software offerings, but many new hardware offerings as well.

Joining our four existing Casablanca 4 Models are four new Casablanca 4 Models: The Casablanca 4 Saphir, Meteor Pro, Meteor, and Travel Pro. Here is the new Price List! We now hit 6 key price points, with a $3300 difference from top to bottom: $2199, 2499, 2999 (2), 3499, 4499, and $5499.

If you are a hobbyist, and only work in Standard Def, the entry level models are all that you need. If you are a professional working primarily in HD with many clients, you would want one of our top 4 models. They render HD so much faster, you can at least cut your project times in half, and make twice as much, or have more time off.

Another option would be getting two entry level units with the Disk Juggler add-on software. As the name implies, this software allows swapping unlimited external USB hard drives between your Casablanca 4 PC’s. It is very similar to Store n Share on the Bogart Linux system.

So, you would want 2 systems with the same software set. Our workflow is to edit the project on one unit, and then move the external drive to the Studio render unit for Disc authoring or File Exports. While it renders we can go back to the edit machine and do another job on another hard drive, and repeat the process.

Our software will run on any robust PC or Mac from this decade, but our software was specifically written for our turnkey Casablanca 4’s, and is ready to edit right out of the box. If you are a computer expert, you can spend days setting your own computer up with our software, and come pretty close to our performance, but anyone else should not attempt it. Too many have failed since the beginning of Bogart for Windows in the Fall of 2014.

For the next 2 months, we are having the best sale we have ever had. Both hardware and software is on sale. If you missed the Bogart 8 for Windows and Standalone Sale at the end of last year, you can save 20% off Bogart 8 through your dealer until March 31. If you do not have a dealer, here is the list: http://www.macrosystem.us/Value_Added_Resellers.php

On the hardware side, we have 6 of 7 models in stock, all but the new Casablanca 4 Travel Pro, which is coming sometime in February. It has the Intel i7 Skylake 6700HQ processor and two HDMI graphic outputs: NVIDIA GeForce GTX965M (1080p60), and Intel HD 530 graphics. We are taking pre-orders for it now (no charge until shipping). Place the pre-order through your dealer here.

All 8 Casablanca 4 Models now come with at least this software package: Bogart 8 Gold Edition, Arabesk 7, Fonts Packs 1 to 4, and Windows 10 Pro. The higher end models come with more software. New this month is a pick any 10 software add-ons bundle for $1000 on all Casablanca 4’s. This bundle began with the Ultra months ago, and the 38 SW Titles that you can pick from is on the 2nd page of the Winter Sale offering here.

The software developers have been really busy. We now have many new software add-ons, and have made a number of video demos. You can view them here.

In closing, all our Casablanca 4 models come with the Casablanca Expert’s 7 hours of online tutorials on Bogart 7 and 8, and Arabesk. This is a $76 value that we give away so your new equipment purchase experience will be a good one. A few people have not seen the email from Chet Davis, which has the training link. It is designed to be watched before your machine arrives, so if you do not get an email from Chet within 3 working days of your order, please contact your dealer.

Speaking of your dealer, they also have a link to the Casablanca Virtual Conference, which Chet and I hosted on November 5th. There were experts from all over the globe on it, and it went on all day. Chet has split it up into segments so you can zero in on the info you need. It was great to hear from our founder Jorg Sprave, who is now a You Tube star with over 25 million views, talk about the monetization streams. His presentation on 360 degree cameras and Virtual Reality was informative too. Ken Smithers (drones), Lou Bruno (4K), Michael Hubmer (Bogart), and of course Chet, hit it out of the park as well.

Thanks, and Quick Happy Edits!

FALL SALE: our best Sale ever on Casablanca 4's


The Summer Sale was such a success with the deep discounts and free software, that we decided to bring it back for the rest of the Fall. Our CPA recommended against it, but we have new staffers who need training, and there is no substitute for the repetition of on the job training (supervised). So here is the best sale we have ever had (CPA: put hand over mouth, and hold jaw shut before opening link):

Bogart 8 for Windows and Arabesk 7 US Release and Sale!


Bogart 8 for Windows is releasing in the Americas on November 1, along with the new Arabesk 7 for Windows. Here is a treasure trove of essential information, as well as our brand new promotional video:  http://www.macrosystem.us/Bogart_8_for_Windows.php

Scroll down to the bottom of the above webpage for the 20% discounts (on these 2 products), for the entire month of November. The discount also applies to upgrades from Bogart 6 and 7, as well as upgrades to Gold.

There has never been a better time to buy. The full version of Bogart 7 Gold for Windows cost $429 when it came out last year. Germany lowered the price of the full version, so we can now offer it for $299 everyday; but this November only, you can buy the full version of Bogart 8 Gold for Windows (with all the new features of 8, and old features of 7, for only $239 ($190 off the lesser version 7).

Bogart 8 and Arabesk 7 for the Standalones (Linux S-models, Topaz, and Karat) will release on November 21, and the 20% OFF Sale will last until the last day of Fall, December 20. Another newsletter will announce the details then.

A lot of our customers didn’t like automatically paying for new operating systems annually, so we ended the Club Casablanca program last year. Now you will have to contact your Value Added Reseller to pay for the product. If you don’t have a VAR, here is a list: http://www.macrosystem.us/Value_Added_Resellers.php

All Sales of the Macrosystem Casablanca 4s Studios, or the Bogart 8 Gold and Arabesk 7 software ONLY, include the Casablanca Expert’s online tutorial free of charge ($75 value).
