MediaFiler was selected to manage the Universities media files. When you consider that many other Digital Asset Management solutions from the USA and Europe were all tested and evaluated by Twente’s IT department – considered by many to be the best in Holland – we are justifiably proud that Twente, the Information Technology University selected our product, MediaFiler.
A large part of the university’s photography is free for student / staffs downloads and other sections are open to the public. The open archive has been specifically configured to look and feel the same as the university website and offers not only photographs but other media too.
