Bogart 6.1 for the S-Series, Topaz, and Karat Release

Bogart 6.1 for the S-series, Topaz, and Karat is available from your dealer now too. If you do not have a dealer, here is the list: http://www.macrosystem.us/Dealer_List.php  For Cassie Cultists upgrading from Bogart 5 it is only $69, or $249 from version 4 or earlier. Add $10 for discs, Bogart 6 manual addendum, release notes, install instructions, and shipping USPS Priority ($7 for 1st Class) ($20 Canada). Probably best to get it shipped, because the downloads are well over 2 GB and would take most forever. But here are all the links for those with high speed internet, and ISO file disc burning software and skills:






The manual above lists the main new features of Bogart 6.1, but it leaves out a few other important features. Probably the biggest is compatibility with the new HD Backup Sentry, which is a paid upgrade currently released in Europe, and about ready to emerge from Beta Testing in the US.  This allows single project backups, and transfers between other Casablancas with the same software. You can even select parts of project. It saves and restores everything just like it was. Storyboard, Clip Bin, Transitions, Test, Inserts, Audio; in other words everything. Bogart 6.1 Gold also includes an improved A/V data backup, restore, and transfer if you do not want to spend the money for Sentry. But the A/V data does not save inserts, transitions, etc.

Also the manual does not include these very important items: PCM Audio support, and many new video formats, including Sonys XAVC. I highly recommend the upgrade, particularly since it is so inexpensive for Bogart 5 users. If you don't have Bogart 5, Bogart 6 includes all of those numerous capabilities too!

Bogart 6.1 requires Arabesk 6.3e to work properly. If you already purchased Arabesk 6 you have the license code, but make sure you load Arabesk 6.3e from the new add-on SW disc. If you don't have Arabesk 6, with the 25% add-on SW Sale it is $75 (if coming from version 5). From earlier versions of Arabesk it is $119 during the sale.

If you are not using Arabesk 6 you are really missing the boat. With all previous versions of Arabesk, you could only work on one Arabesk project at a time. Arabesk 6 gives you 10 projects, and many other cool new features:  http://macrosystem.us/Arabesk_6.php

Bogart 6.1 for Windows Release

The long awaited Bogart 6.1 for Microsoft Windows 7, 8, and Vista is now available to download on the PC you wish to install it to. Even better, the Bronze version is free for 30-days as you decide whether you want to buy it, or the Silver or Gold versions; each more valuable metal adds features and capabilities. The $99 basic Bronze version features are in all the versions, Silver for $199 adds more capabilities, and the $399 Gold unlocks all the features of all the versions: 


Here are the Installation Instructions:


Here is the link to the small 140Mb download:


Within 30 days you will need to license one of the versions, if you want to keep using it. Call or email your dealer with the 9 digit serial number.  From the main Bogart Windows menu, click the Settings button. The Serial Number will be in the lower left corner of the settings screen, exactly where it has always been for at least the last decade. If you do not have a dealer, here is a list of our dealers (the ones who have Bogart 6.1 for Windows have a (W) next to their name):


The manual has not finished German translation yet. It will be available for download when it does. But our software is the easiest there is, particularly since you already use it. After downloading and trying it for free, I am sure you will want to buy it. We have also setup a Bogart for Windows Section in the Casablanca Forum if you have any questions, comments, complaints, wish list, or tips:


The more powerful the computer the better, but I do not want to scare you. It runs well on any PC made this decade, but it is best using a 4th generation Intel i3, i5 or i7 processor with Intel Quick Sync Video. When I say best, I mean less waiting for rendering, transcoding, imports and exports. Try it out for free on all your PCs, you'll be pleasantly surprised I think. Once you download it, just use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the install file onto a thumb drive, and then onto other PC's with the thumb drive.

We will begin shipping the MacroSystem PC Workstations and Laptops in February 2015, if you just want to wait for a turnkey system with MacroSystem warranty. Watch the Casablanca Bogart for Windows Forum for developing information.
