About Media 100 Inc.
Media 100 Inc (the company) designs and sells advanced media systems for content design. In the case of its newest and most advanced development, 844/X, the company has integrated the previously separate workflows of real-time video editing and the compositing of layers of video, computer graphics, audio, and metadata. The Company has developed new technologyintegrated software and hardware, including Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs)to perform compositing in real time or at high speed to allow compositing operations to be performed within an editing environment and execute at high speed without host-based rendering, which is slow and impedes productivity.
The companys products include personal computer-based workstations configured with proprietary software and hardware that it engineer and manufacture. In some cases, particularly with 844/X, the company sells its products as "turnkey" systems, meaning it configures and ships the system to an end user, or reseller, with a host personal computer, its software and hardware, and disk storage; in other cases, the company delivers only its software and hardware (unbundled), typically to an independent value-added reseller that configures the turnkey system themselves on behalf of an end user.
The customers for its products include media professionals. They fall into several segments. Many are full-time broadcast designers, visual effects artists, and video editors operating as employees of professional television and post-production establishments, such as major networks, cable networks, independent post-production facilities, and small creative boutiques. Others are full-time or part-time video editors operating at businesses, schools, government offices, hospitals, or non-profit institutions. In some cases, its customers are "independent"; they are self-employed and operate on their own, independently, typically on behalf of both broadcast-related and non-broadcast or industrial clients.
The company designed and sold nonlinear editing systems mainly to non-broadcast segments of the video industrybusinesses, schools, and other institutions using audio/video equipment typically to teach, train, and communicate. In addition, the company sold its products to some broadcast-related segments, particularly cable networks and smaller post-production operations.
The Company develops and sells three major product lines: 844/X, ; Media 100 i; and iFinish. In addition, the company sells technical support, software upgrades, and maintenance contracts, which it markets under the brand name, Platinum.
844/X is a new fully-digital system for content design that the company began to deliver in April 2002.
844/X is for media professionals who need to design highly creative content by editing video and compositing layers. 844/X performs image, graphics, and audio operations concurrently in real time at high quality.
Discreet Flame®: These customers included broadcast designers, visual effects artists, and online video editors.
The company sells 844/X in two configurations: 844/Xe and 844/Xi. The two configurations operate identically except 844/Xe is approximately three times faster than 844/Xi.
In addition, in January 2003, the company announced three subsequent developments: HDX Technology, new technology that expands the GenesisEngine, a PCI-standard subsystem that installs in the backplane of a personal computer and provides physical cable connections for video, audio, and facility integration signals through an external junction box, to support high-definition (HD) applications in addition to standard-definition (SD) applications; the Version 2 software release, which it calls "The Finishing Release", providing a significant expansion of the 844/X user interface and toolsets; and XBLUR, a new product option that expands the GenesisEngine providing real-time true Gaussian Blur effects on up to four video streams simultaneously.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
