Metz CEO Dr. Norbert Kotzbauer and Head of Corporate Communication Thomas Hey received the certificate naming Metz Qualittsmarke 2012 for flash units. Christian Rogge Testberichte.de presented them with the award at photokina 2012. Testberichte.de awarded the title for the first time this year and it will be awarded anew each year. The title is awarded to manufac-turers that represent particularly high quality in a specific product segment and also belong to the top bracket in the respective category. The top brack-et is defined as follows the distribution of average product ratings is deter-mined for each manufacturer in the category, whereby each average rating is weighted by the number of underlying individual ratings. To achieve the title, the average rating of the manufacturer must fall in the top 25 per cent of all average ratings i.e. achieve the 25% quartile value for the distribution or better. In addition, the manufacturer must have an average rating of at least ''good'' up to 2.5 and this must be based on a minimum of five individual evaluations.

We launched this award to provide consumers with both additional guid-ance and confidence when making purchase decisions as well as to bring manufacturers of verifiably high-quality products to the public's attention. We awarded the prize for the first time this year and it will be awarded anew each year, explained Christian Heine, Head of Marketing at Testberichte.de and the man behind the award's conception.

To award the title, Testberichte.de evaluated the brand and quality guaran-tee of each manufacturer on the basis of product reviews from over 650 spe-cialist and consumer magazines.

A total of approx. 80,000 product ratings from the past 24 months were ana-lysed. Based on this unique collection of reviews, the portal could identify the manufacturers that have a high quality product portfolio with above-average ratings. This shows that they particularly live up to the needs of con-sumers. Metz flash units were evaluated in 15 reviews over the past 24 months and scored an average rating of good 1.7.
