1. Die Met@box AG

Zunächst also die Beurteilung der Analysten von Merk & Fink von der Präsentation:

Successful presentation of the Met@Box 1000

The Met@box 1000 is constructed on modules allowing a variety of different configurations based on the clients needs. These modules are easily connected or disconnected in order to minimise the effort of satisfying the different specifications needs of the different customers. Possible features include, a DVD player, a harddisk (>20GB, e.g. for the digital video recorder application), the possibility to play CDs or MP3 files, pay-TV features, an answering machine, a smart card reader and e-mail and SMS functionality as well as the Internet access which comes in line with all Set-Top boxes on the market. The picture-in-picture (PiP) availability allows the customer surfing the Internet or writing an e-mail while simultaneously seeing the current TV program. Top functionality of the box.

The quality of the picture of the Internet as well as the TV picture was very clear and showed no disadvantages compared to the conventional TV screen or compared to the PC. The difficulties of the former boxes (Metabox 50 , Metabox 100) to give a clear picture of written pages on the www could not be found anymore with the Met@box 1000. The Met@box 1000 fulfils the Multi Media Home Platform standard (MHP) which is supported by most large companies within the sector. Focused picture does left no room for critics.

The "cold fire" processor from Motorola ( hier ist vielleicht schon der besondere Vorzug der “coldfire”-PU zu erwähnen: er ist eben cold!. D. h. im Gegensatz zu PC – basierten Settopboxen – wie etwa der Activitiy von SiemensFut. – entfällt das Kühlungsgebläse. Daher kann auf aufwendige Dämmung, der im Wohnzimmer unerwünschten Lärmemissionen, verzichtet werden. Weitere Vorteile sind, kein Windows als Betriebsystem. Daher keine: a. windoofsspezf. Absturzgefahr b. Msoft Lizenz-Geb. und eine Reduktion des zeitraubenden bootens ) forms the core of the Met@box 1000 which enables a fast and ecure Multi-Media functionality compared to other processors currently in the market. The Met@box 1000 can be run on an analog basis as well as on a digital basis which is also build on the modular concept described above. Motorola processor secures multi-media standard

As the credibility of the company has been drawn down by various factors only hard facts will bring back faith from the financial community. As soon as the first boxes are delivered to Israel and to the U.K. the financial market will see a positive reaction on the stock price. If not it will stay as volatile as in the last months. Credibility of the company will be restored by hard facts. (Quelle: Merck Finck & Co.)
