Multimedia data management is an important application in multimedia system domain. The application scopes are to retrieve, collect, store and preserve multimedia data in a distributed environment. A reliable or appropriate format of record structure in multimedia data management is required in order to trace information validation. Hence, the concept of temporal database can be applied to overcome this situation. The paper presents the development of temporal based multimedia data management model. Two elements of time are incorporated into the model; transaction time and valid time. This time elements will monitor the changes (event) and transaction that happened to the data in database. The use of time elements provides a new schema to query multimedia data based on past, current and future time. The designed model is implemented under web services based environment by utilizing J2EE platform.
