MedCAT: An Internet / Intranet solution for the archival and distribution of media resources


  • Darren Williams


The last decade has seen radical improvements in communications technologies, brought about by advances in optical fibres and transmission systems. Such advances, together with changes in computer hardware and software technologies have stimulated the growth of large scale computer networks. However, the most significant growth has been in the expansion and accessibility of the Internet primarily due to the development of the World Wide Web (WWW). This growth has spawned entirely new industries in electronic publication and media distribution and management.
