Greatest Holiday Sale ever for MacroSystem!

Holiday Greetings Cassie Cultists!

It has been over 5 years of the Macrosystem Casablanca 4 PC system sales. I thought nothing could top the functionality and reliability of the Macrosystem Casablanca 3 Karat, but I was wrong. The Cassie 4’s require shop service less than one tenth of 1 percent. The functionality of the Cassie 4 is exponentially greater. If you work professionally in Full HD with deadlines to meet you can do the projects 2 to 4 times faster than the Karat, and potentially double to quadruple your income. The Karat is approaching 7 years old and has an old slow Intel i3 processor. As far as UHD and 4K, the Karat or any Cassie 3 cannot edit it. The Cassie 3’s downconvert it to Full HD (2K) which takes overnight for any long form project, and you lose 75% of your pixels permanently. So, this will be the last time we offer a trade-in and software swaps on the Casablanca 3 models, as we have only sold two all year, and may have a lifetime supply of them. Click here for the trade-in values! 

Most of the Casablanca 3 Linux OS add-on software apps were ported over to the Casablanca 4 Windows OS since 2014, but it cost DE many tens of thousands of Euros for the SW developers to do this monumental and incredible task. In many cases the original Bogart Linux Add-on SW was made by companies that went broke years ago and owe so much money you cannot find them. And even if you can they won’t port it to Windows because the money goes to the judgement credit holders. So, we had to make our own software from scratch to replace it. And in most cases the DE developers did a much better job than the original Linux version. So the best we can do on SW swaps from the Cassie 3 trade-in to the Cassie 4 Sapphire or Studio Pro 2 is at our cost of  50% off of the Bogart Windows Add-on price.  But well worth the price, and you can try before you buy in the free demo mode.

But on the Holiday Sale you get to pick any 7 Add-on SW Titles for free on the  MacroSystem Casablanca 4 Saphire 2  ($4499)  in addition to the good basic set of software that comes with it: Bogart Windows 11 GOLD, Windows Pro Pack, Arabesk 7 (Ara 8 when available), Fonts Packs 1 to 4, HD Sentry BU, Disk Juggler, and PowerKey. But that’s not all! All Cassie 4 Macrosystem’s purchased through January 24, 2020 will receive 5 more free programs. Click here to watch the highlights of the programs!

The MacroSystem Casablanca 4 Studio Pro 2 ($3399) allows trade-ins, and pick any 7 Add-ons Free, and get all 5 Free Club Packs from 2014 to 2018.  The basic included software: Bogart Windows 11 GOLD, Arabesk 7 (Ara 8 when available), Fonts Packs 1 to 4, HD Sentry BU, and PowerKey.

The MacroSystem Casablanca 4 Travel 2 ($2999) does not allow trade-ins, but pick any 5 Add-ons Free, and 5 Free Club Packs 2014 to 2018. The basic included software: Bogart Windows 11 GOLD, Windows Pro Pack, Fonts Packs 1 to 4, and Hard Drive Back Sentry.

The MacroSystem Casablanca 4 Meteor 2 ($2699) does not allow trade-ins, but pick any 5 Add-ons Free, and 5 Free Club Packs 2014 to 2018. The basic included software:  Bogart Windows 11 GOLD, Arabesk 7 (Ara 8 when available), Fonts Packs 1 to 4, and HD Sentry BU.

The MacroSystem Casablanca 4 Studio 2 ($2399) does not allow trade-ins, but pick any 3 Add-ons Free, and 5 Free Club Packs 2014 to 2018. The basic included software:  Bogart Windows 11 GOLD, Arabesk 7 (Ara 8 when available), Fonts Packs 1 to 4, HD Sentry BU, and PowerKey.

Many of our Cassie Cultists use our Bogart for Windows 11 Software on their own PC’s, so we came up with a great software only deal for them and existing Macrosystem Casablanca Bogart users: Buy any Bogart for Linux Casablanca 3 or Cassie 4 for Windows Add-on SW Title at full price and receive for free one of the five Casablanca Pro Club SW Titles. Click here for a video of the highlights from each year from 2014 to 2018. Click here for the price list. Click here for highlights of some of the Add-on SW apps.

I will be joining the Casablanca Expert Chet Davis for a webinar on all the latest SW Saturday December 7 @ 8AM Pacific Time. To register click here. If you miss the event you will get an email with the link to it from Chet a few days later. There are some excellent SW editor stuffers to see, and if you play Santa for yourself, you will finally get what you want. For sure one is Arabesk 8 which releases next weekend. Chet has had it a month, so looking forward to that. I’m hoping Chet does his 12 Tips of Christmas again this year too!

All sales are through our Casablanca Video Editing Experts!  They have been using our software daily for video production over 2 decades and know it better than I do. I knew it well in the nineties but have been mired in business operations ever since then. However, I do still work with our Beta Team to verify bugs. So, the CVE Experts will get you into the right C4 model you need for the formats you work with, the type of jobs you do, your video delivery needs; and then place the order to us. We spend a day setting the turnkey system up for high performance video editing and another day testing all functions. This is why it works right out of the box everytime. In the unlikely event you do have problems over the years, 99% of those can be fixed remotely while you watch, or while you are away. For the 29 years of MacroSystem or the 40 or 50 years of hardware and software it will always be the same situation. Hardware is dumb and software tells it how to function. When HW is not working like it should, it is usually corrupted SW. Reloading the SW fixes 99% of issues, and it is HW less than 1% of the time. With Bogart for Windows it is a non-destructive install, so just double click the latest Bogart Windows install file. This file has all the latest versions from Bogart 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. Go into the Install Product menu and activate the version you have a license for.  Same for Bogart Linux, except with it you can also do a destructive install if you have a pesky problem that won’t go away with updates.

The Trade War has made global trade more expensive and supplies inconsistent. If you are looking for something under your tree, currently we only have one Casablanca 4 Studio Pro 2 (best value deal), and two Casablanca 4 Studio 2’s in stock, so act fast! All other orders will take a month give or take a week for delivery. To get the tax deduction this year, pay for it now and take ownership this year, even if it doesn’t get delivered until January. Check your accountant to verify my CPA’s understanding that it does qualify for a tax deduction this year.

Sad News!

 Sorry for the delay in writing, but 2019 has been a challenging year to say the least. We lost John Kenchenten, our favorite Canadian dealer May 18th, after years of fighting renal failure and diabetes: https://www.yatesmemorial.ca/notices/John-KENCHENTEN

 Then Carroll Lam, who was instrumental in nurturing the Casablanca in the US with his Cassie Tips List lost his long battle with myelodysplasia August 2, but not before completing three 20 to 25 year careers in his 83 year life: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/tucson/obituary.aspx?pid=193602553

As you can tell by their obituaries and the comments, they were both incredible men who will be missed!

Our 23 year dealer Tommy Wells and his wife were in a bad accident last year and just got back to work in May, and Chuck Owen's wife was in a wreck, and caregiving has been his top priority.


The trade war has been a challenge too. It now takes 2 months to get a pallet load of equipment from Germany, and it could get worse. We just got our last pallet order of this year, and only have 4 units left from it, which are identified here : www.macrosystem.us

All of the new Casablanca 4 systems come with the new Arabesk 8, which does 4K Discs as well as Blu-ray, and DVD. In addition the more you spend the more software you get in the basic SW package, as well as the pick any 2 SW Titles for free, or pick any 3 SW titles for free on the high end systems. Click here for the details on each model here: www.macrosystem.us

Those who purchased a new Casablanca 4 system from the pallet we got in September, should have received a free license code for Arabesk 8. As soon as the US Beta Team releases it, you can launch Bogart 11, go to Settings, click System, then click the bottom button "search for update". This button connects to the German SW server and updates you to Bogart Windows 11.3 with Arabesk 8. They were released in Europe a week ago, but they are mostly hobbyists, so we recommend waiting until the US Beta Team releases it. We are mostly professionals in the US, so we really put it through much tougher tests.

Single unit air shipments take about 4 weeks now, so there is still time to get delivery before Christmas, but act really soon. Also we have some popular laptops and desktops which were lightly used for compatibility testing, and are now for sale at attractive prices, with a good set of software and a 6-month warranty.


We will be closed for the Holidays from December 19 to January 5, 2020. For System orders please order ASAP. For SW orders you should order by Friday the 13th of December! Speaking of Software, for every paid add-on SW title you order before Dec 14, get a free Casablanca Club pack of your choice: There are 6 years to choose from: 2013 to 2018. If you buy a Casablanca 4 System, get all  of the 6 Club packs for free.
