The Grand Bargain

We wanted our first promotion since taking over the reins of MacroSystem US to be a grand bargain. It had to be the best deal that had ever been done before.  So for the remainder of April 2014, buy our high end Karat Edit System at the regular price of $3999, and receive the essential $429 Render Booster FREE! And trade-in any Bogart model for as much as $1500, and get your software codes transferred for free.  Now how is that for a Grand Bargain?

McNally's Plug and Play Takes Over

We're excited to announce that Gary McNally of McNally's Plug and Play is going to be taking the reins of the MacroSystem line of products in the Americas.  Just as in Germany, where the largest Casablanca dealer became the new distributor, we've found the right company to take the Casablanca forward here in North and South America.

This toll free number will remain intact (877) 554-2846, and this new one (360) 371-4942. You can also reach Gary at gary@macrosystem.us  Please be patient during the first couple of months as the systems and new offices need to be setup, and much remains in boxes after the 1500 mile journey.

Updated Columbus/Maps disc.

We have an updated disc for Columbus/Maps.  Columbus 3  v1.3a

There are no changes to the operator itself, just an update of maps as prior licenses have expired.  Current owners can still use the older maps, but may also get the new ones with an update of the Columbus 3 software.   Your existing Columbus 3 code will work.

Columbus 3 now has 62 maps.  They are bigger and of higher resolution so you can zoom and move on the maps like with the Big Maps XXL product.

You can download the new disc here.

Software Updates
Along with Arabesk 6, the new Add On Software DVD includes several updates for other add on pieces of software.  These include:

When you save the Bogart archives, the archives of Titler archives will be saved too.

3. Deshaker V 1.0a - Different languages updated (french, czech, swedish, italian)

4 & 5. Motion 3d XL 1+2 V 1.0a - Archive paths added. When you save the Bogart archives, the archives of Motion 3D XL will be saved too.

6. Pro Club 2011 V 1.1 - This version will work with Bogart 5.  The prior version will not function.

7. SplitX Wedding HD 1.3 - This version fixes a bug where images didn't show up in the pattern operator and fixes a problem with image transparencies.

8.  Effect Jingles Traffic and Technology V1.1 - This fixes some samples that weren't creating or previewing with or Bogart 5 with the prior version.
 
9. Quadcam 1.4 - Improved use with HD footage on Bogart 4.3c or higher.  On Bogart 5, Shuttle TT is supported and now can work on Quadcam 1.4 as well.
