Draco Casablanca

-

The Casablanca is a video editor released during 1997 that allows the user to create professional effects with full screen video. It is a logical development on the Draco Amiga-clone aimed at the video market and has drawn a great deal of support from professionals and enthusiasts alike. The Casablanca is sold as a complete professional system and has a price tag to match, with a suggested retail price of $3,995. Like the original Draco, the Casablanca uses the Amiga ROM, patching some of the operating system to run on the machine.

Specifications

CPU 68040 or 68060
Memory 16Mb RAM
Interface SCSI-II hard disk
Drives 1.44 hi-density disk drive, hard disk
Peripherals Standard PC mice and keyboards

-

Fitted in a video-shaped case, the Casablanca allows connection to a standard TV or monitor and is operated through the graphical display using the mouse. Peripherals such as a breakout board can be added for the adding of YUV-Component and XLR-Balanced-Audio outputs. It is also possible to add IEEE 1394 FireWire support for $1,695.

Peter Drapich provides some information on the Casablanca PC floppy drive:

"[The] floppy disk is a pc one and it uses special pc format (blocks of 1 Kb with specially encoded mfm values to protect against copying on pc), but the file system is a typical amiga file system adapted to this format (changed block sizes).You can easily mount an image of this disk
using simple mountlist on a real amiga."
