The Casablanca was designed as a complete video editing solution and was the successor to the Draco with a cheaper price tag of around $3,500. Many models of Casablanca exist, but only the first model or the first few models were clones of the Amiga. Newer models are largely based around PC hardware. It made use of the Amiga's ROMs and operating system with various patches to drive the hardware. The Casablanca probably isn't too practical to run traditional Amiga software because it is a highly integrated device and in fact, may even be largely incompatible with most Amiga software. The Casablanca makes uses of proprietary hardware such as flash cards for updates (to prevent piracy), custom hard drive mechanisms and DVD burners.
