MEMAT beginnings:

The first version of MEMAT was launched in 2001. In 2005 the entire system was upgraded to MEMAT 2 using Open Source technologies, building on lessons learned in the first version. MEMAT 3.0 was another revision to make use of the latest Open Source technologies and was launched in 2009. Improvements in MEMAT 3 have resulted in the latest release of MEMAT 3.1

Africa Media Online has created a product based on its own experiences at the heart of the heritage and media industries with years of experience in developing and using photographic websites and running an extensive media library. We are also experts in large volume digitisation and digital work flow and MEMAT forms a crucial part of this work flow.
