      COMPANY OVERVIEW

      "Smart Home" Services
      for the Builder
      Industry Opportunity

      "Each year for the next 10 years, 250,000 single-family homes will be
      built in California alone, 18 million new homes in the U.S. in total."


      Los Angeles Times, 6.27.01& National Association of Home
      Builders, "The Next Decade for Housing" Report

      Gone are the days when all the homeowner wants is a telephone, cable
      and security system that is routinely installed by any electrician



      As today's youth enters the world of computer technology, the need
      for home area networks (Han) to enable more than one family member to
      have access to a computer and the wealth of resources that provides,
      is no longer a luxury but a necessity.

      "Without this wiring, in a few years your houses
      will be looked on as electronic dinosaurs."

      The sophisticated lifestyle of the new generation of homeowner
      demands razor-sharp images, immersive surround sound, and home
      automation features with fascinating extras that bring to mind
      stories of the Jetsons.



      These devices have advantages beyond melding your favorite
      entertainment technologies with a click of a button and saving lots
      of space in an equipment rack or on a bedroom dresser. Pre-wire
      integration means you won't have to deal with the cable spaghetti
      that results from patching together different components.



      Demand these homes, and the communities in which they are built, to
      be "smart" is creating a multi-billion dollar industry.

      This expansion now calls for a different breed of technology service
      provider enabling smooth integration. The professional must be
      trained in the product and its complexity and know how to install to
      maintain integrity of transmission.

      To install the digital infrastructure that consumers are increasingly
      demanding, builders currently have to go to more than one source,
      including countless manufacturers of wiring, automation and
      entertainment components. Often, marketing, consumer needs
      assessment and option sales are under-utilized resulting in lost
      profitability potential.

      With 11 years of industry experience, the Home Tech Works provides
      one source for the builder to create "smart homes", saving both time
      and money so the builder and homeowner can reap the benefits of this
      emerging segment of the industry.

      Also, Home Tech Works has unique positioning in the industry because
      of it's ability to offer option packages to add on top of the
      infrastructure of the prewire so the homeowner is able to tailor
      their home to meet their needs, giving homeowners the ability to
      virtually customize their home.

      Company Background

      Industry veterans formed Home Tech Works in 2001 to assist builders
      with integrating and successfully implementing new "smart home"
      technologies.

      Home Tech Works is an equally owned joint venture between Media
      Concepts (Pink sheet MDCE), a home networking, automation and home
      theater company, and Top Box (privately held), a marketing and
      development firm.

      The team is located in Los Angeles and Temecula, both in southern
      California.

      Top Three Reasons Consumers Want "Wired Homes"

      The top three reasons consumers cite for wanting residential digital
      wiring are:
      • High-speed Internet access for all computers throughout the
      home.
      • Ability to monitor and manage the home, including saving
      energy, security and away-from-home Internet access.
      • Entertainment access throughout the house.







      Our research into the homebuilders market

      in southern California has found:


      • Although home price is not always a guarantee, the
      correlation most often exists between a home enhanced with pre-wiring
      for telephone and cable TV, and especially with Cat 5 wiring, and
      pricing above entry-level, moving upward to the luxury level.
      • Wiring for telephone and cable TV is often restricted to
      master bedrooms and areas such as the family room, therefore not
      allowing for the true networking of a home. A builder who offers Cat
      5 into one bedroom of the house or a few rooms only restricts the
      homeowners' choice of access considerably.
      • Using telephone lines instead of Cat 5 or more advanced
      wiring solutions does not accommodate digital signals/high-speed
      Internet/entertainment delivery or a networked home; it is our
      contention that these homes will be out-of-date in short order, as
      advanced technological offerings continue to proliferate.

      Home Networking & Automation, a Booming Market

      A massive shift in the impact of technology into the home is creating
      a multi-billion dollar networking and automation industry. Market
      drivers include multiple computers in the home, rising Internet usage
      and the advent of broadband and other high-speed delivery systems for
      the Internet and entertainment.

      The home networking and automation industry is one of the fastest
      growing markets in the world today with annual growth projections of
      nearly 30%. It is made up of several sub-sections, each projected to
      see explosive growth. The base or infrastructure upon which all
      components and equipment is based is home networking, or home area
      networks (HAN). Home networking projections anticipate industry
      revenue to reach $7.7 billion by 2004, with 14% of new homes being
      wired currently, rising to 25% over the next few years. Wireless
      system sales are expected to generate nearly $2 billion in revenues.
      Home Networking should not be confused with Home Automation, which
      has to do with command and control systems for the heat, light, and
      power systems within a home. Home automation, the components creating
      the application systems, is expected to generate $27.3 billion by
      2005. Home theater sales, yet another sub-section of the overall
      industry, saw sales of $10 billion in 2000.

      Much is being written about the smart home, or connected family of
      the future. Big interests are at stake in this industry, with
      companies such as Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), and
      3Com (NASDAQ:COMS) diligently working out the bugs; others, including
      Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Honeywell (NYSE:HON) have been testing the
      new technology in homes to see how consumers react.

      Such companies have found that although talking toasters may remain a
      fantasy, people would even now be willing to use more prosaic
      applications that make it possible for them to communicate more
      easily, to find a broader range of entertainment options, and to
      assume greater control over their homes. Brand name consumer
      appliance companies are also in the game, including General Electric
      (NYSE:GE), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and the gaming companies Sega, Sony
      (NYSE: SNE) and Microsoft.

        COMPANY OVERVIEW

        "Smart Home" Services
        for the Builder
        Industry Opportunity

        "Each year for the next 10 years, 250,000 single-family homes will be
        built in California alone, 18 million new homes in the U.S. in total."


        Los Angeles Times, 6.27.01& National Association of Home
        Builders, "The Next Decade for Housing" Report

        Gone are the days when all the homeowner wants is a telephone, cable
        and security system that is routinely installed by any electrician



        As today's youth enters the world of computer technology, the need
        for home area networks (Han) to enable more than one family member to
        have access to a computer and the wealth of resources that provides,
        is no longer a luxury but a necessity.

        "Without this wiring, in a few years your houses
        will be looked on as electronic dinosaurs."
        - Source: homeautomationtimes.com

        The sophisticated lifestyle of the new generation of homeowner
        demands razor-sharp images, immersive surround sound, and home
        automation features with fascinating extras that bring to mind
        stories of the Jetsons.



        These devices have advantages beyond melding your favorite
        entertainment technologies with a click of a button and saving lots
        of space in an equipment rack or on a bedroom dresser. Pre-wire
        integration means you won't have to deal with the cable spaghetti
        that results from patching together different components.



        Demand these homes, and the communities in which they are built, to
        be "smart" is creating a multi-billion dollar industry.

        This expansion now calls for a different breed of technology service
        provider enabling smooth integration. The professional must be
        trained in the product and its complexity and know how to install to
        maintain integrity of transmission.

        To install the digital infrastructure that consumers are increasingly
        demanding, builders currently have to go to more than one source,
        including countless manufacturers of wiring, automation and
        entertainment components. Often, marketing, consumer needs assessment
        and option sales are under-utilized resulting in lost profitability
        potential.

        With 11 years of industry experience, the Home Tech Works provides
        one source for the builder to create "smart homes", saving both time
        and money so the builder and homeowner can reap the benefits of this
        emerging segment of the industry.

        Also, Home Tech Works has unique positioning in the industry because
        of it's ability to offer option packages to add on top of the
        infrastructure of the prewire so the homeowner is able to tailor
        their home to meet their needs, giving homeowners the ability to
        virtually customize their home.


        Home Tech Works offers

        1. INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE AND CREATIVE ABILITY. Upon a synergistic
        foundation of home networking, automation and entertainment,
        technology, business development and marketing expertise, we add a
        deep understanding of the creative process to develop great ideas
        that blossom into highly effective home automation solutions for the
        home and the community.

        2. STABILITY. We are a seasoned management team who has individually
        and as a team developed and implemented applicable and complementary
        projects. We use a systematic approach that integrates traditional
        business practices into the new digital realm, with the intent to
        create and implement integrated home automation solutions.

        3. RELIABILITY. Our systematic approach to quantifying the strengths,
        weaknesses and integration issues of our projects helps us to
        reliably fulfill the intent of each project and the full potential of
        the technology in user-friendly applications.

        Our project management discipline calls for the clear analysis of the
        needs, for which we build a team of internal and external resources
        on an "as-needed" basis for implementation. This approach gives us
        flexibility and is cost-effective. It also enables us to ramp up or
        down for projects quickly, depending on the parameters of the job.

        Key characteristics we use as a guiding principle in the process
        include the basic ingredients of comprehensive talent and background
        necessary for the position, an attention to detail, a professional
        demeanor spiced by a sense of humor, imagination and enthusiasm, and
        a desire to make a difference.



        Company Background

        Industry veterans formed Home Tech Works in 2001 to assist builders
        with integrating and successfully implementing new "smart home"
        technologies.

        Home Tech Works is an equally owned joint venture between Media
        Concepts (Pink sheet MDCE), a home networking, automation and home
        theater company, and Top Box (privately held), a marketing and
        development firm.

        The team is located in Los Angeles and Temecula, both in southern
        California.

        Top Three Reasons Consumers Want "Wired Homes"

        The top three reasons consumers cite for wanting residential digital
        wiring are:
        • High-speed Internet access for all computers throughout the home.
        • Ability to monitor and manage the home, including saving energy,
        security and away-from-home Internet access.
        • Entertainment access throughout the house.







        Our research into the homebuilders market

        in southern California has found:


        • Although home price is not always a guarantee, the correlation most
        often exists between a home enhanced with pre-wiring for telephone
        and cable TV, and especially with Cat 5 wiring, and pricing above
        entry-level, moving upward to the luxury level.
        • Wiring for telephone and cable TV is often restricted to master
        bedrooms and areas such as the family room, therefore not allowing
        for the true networking of a home. A builder who offers Cat 5 into
        one bedroom of the house or a few rooms only restricts the
        homeowners' choice of access considerably.
        • Using telephone lines instead of Cat 5 or more advanced wiring
        solutions does not accommodate digital signals/high-speed
        Internet/entertainment delivery or a networked home; it is our
        contention that these homes will be out-of-date in short order, as
        advanced technological offerings continue to proliferate.

        Home Networking & Automation, a Booming Market

        A massive shift in the impact of technology into the home is creating
        a multi-billion dollar networking and automation industry. Market
        drivers include multiple computers in the home, rising Internet usage
        and the advent of broadband and other high-speed delivery systems for
        the Internet and entertainment.

        The home networking and automation industry is one of the fastest
        growing markets in the world today with annual growth projections of
        nearly 30%. It is made up of several sub-sections, each projected to
        see explosive growth. The base or infrastructure upon which all
        components and equipment is based is home networking, or home area
        networks (HAN). Home networking projections anticipate industry
        revenue to reach $7.7 billion by 2004, with 14% of new homes being
        wired currently, rising to 25% over the next few years. Wireless
        system sales are expected to generate nearly $2 billion in revenues.
        Home Networking should not be confused with Home Automation, which
        has to do with command and control systems for the heat, light, and
        power systems within a home. Home automation, the components creating
        the application systems, is expected to generate $27.3 billion by
        2005. Home theater sales, yet another sub-section of the overall
        industry, saw sales of $10 billion in 2000.

        Much is being written about the smart home, or connected family of
        the future. Big interests are at stake in this industry, with
        companies such as Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), and
        3Com (NASDAQ:COMS) diligently working out the bugs; others, including
        Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Honeywell (NYSE:HON) have been testing the
        new technology in homes to see how consumers react.

        Such companies have found that although talking toasters may remain a
        fantasy, people would even now be willing to use more prosaic
        applications that make it possible for them to communicate more
        easily, to find a broader range of entertainment options, and to
        assume greater control over their homes. Brand name consumer
        appliance companies are also in the game, including General Electric
        (NYSE:GE), Whirlpool (NYSE:WHR), and the gaming companies Sega, Sony
        (NYSE: SNE) and Microsoft.
