    Our research into multimedia information management and storage focuses on enabling database systems to deal with multimedia content at a high level of abstraction. We examine the database system's role in managing multimedia data. Database systems need to do more than providing a document model or binary large objects to implement multimedia database systems. We examine what the database system's... View full abstract»

    Advances in computing power and the development of high-speed networks have enabled research on interactive and real-time multimedia computing. Nevertheless, the video server in MMDBMS suffers from the limitation of current magnetic disk technology for supporting large amounts of interactive requests simultaneously. We study the problem of data placement in MMDBMS consisting of multiple disks to p... View full abstract»

  • Improved and optimal adaptive hierarchical vector quantization for image coding and indexing

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):102 - 109
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (708 KB)

    Adaptive hierarchical algorithms of vector quantization (VQ) for image coding and database applications are proposed. The basic codebook is generated adaptively using adaptive VQ; then the quadruplets of codes/indices are coded into higher-level codes by creating higher-level index-codebooks to reduce the redundancy presented in the codes. A partial encoding scheme is proposed in the second layer ... View full abstract»

  • Modeling and querying primitives for digital media

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):82 - 89

    We present a data model and a rule-based formalism for managing digital media data-specifically, audio-video data and their associated annotations. The rule-based formalism is also equivalent to algebraic and visual formalisms. The simplicity and equivalence of these formalisms provides evidence that the concepts in this model may define a kernel of capabilities required for handling digital media View full abstract»

    We present some mechanisms to ensure synchronization in distributed multimedia presentations, in the presence of multiple remote sources, limited network bandwidth, statistical network delays, and asynchronous user interaction. The various network problems are modelled as bounded probabilistic delays. Using an interval based presentation schedule, the mechanisms predict the optimal time to initiat... View full abstract»

    Typically, multimedia applications involve thousands of hours of video, images, audio, text and graphics that need to be stored, retrieved and manipulated in a large multimedia database. There is therefore an important need for novel techniques and systems which provide an efficient retrieval facility of the voluminous information stored in the multimedia database. Such facility will consist of a ... View full abstract»

  • STORM: structural and temporal object-oriented multimedia database system

    The STORM DBMS integrates structural and temporal aspects for building different presentations of multimedia objects (i.e. text, audio, image, video). We integrate structural operators (e.g. tuple, list, set) and temporal relationships (e.g. before, after, equal) for defining multimedia presentations. Temporal aspects are modeled through the notion of Temporal Shadow which incorporates free or bou... View full abstract»

    Unlike conventional text-based information, media objects such as audio, video, images, graphics, are much larger in size. The recent proliferation of World-Wide Web multimedia compound documents on the Internet has resulted in ever escalating network traffic, whose rate will not be sustainable for long before encountering serious performance problems. We have devised an integrated framework cover... View full abstract»

    VideoSTAR (Video STorage And Retrieval) is an experimental video database system that gives support for sharing and reuse of video and meta-data. We discuss the need for a user to control the degree of meta-data sharing when searching and browsing a shared video database and we propose a way of organising meta-data to allow such functionality. This paper also presents a video query algebra utilizi... View full abstract»

    Playout management subsumes lower and higher level system tasks necessary to execute stored multimedia presentations. For multimedia database management systems, we propose the integration of a respective playout management service. On one hand, this provides optimal database management support for multimedia applications. On the other, this makes the handling of multimedia data within a multimedi... View full abstract»

    A data model is presented for the systematic representation of image content. The basic building block of the data model consists of facts, which may be modified and linked together in different ways to express the subject matter of an image. From the data model, a canonical image description may be automatically built, which can capture a rich content semantics. The canonical description may be u... View full abstract»

    Video is becoming a popular medium for data collection. The challenge of analyzing video data is to abstract and conclude quantitative results from such a rich, qualitative medium. The focus of our research is to support video analysis by developing a user-friendly interactive visualization environment to query video data using spatio-temporal characteristics and to review visual results for trend...

  • Views of media objects in multimedia databases

    Multimedia database systems must manage large amounts of graphical, textual, and audio data. To compound the problem, if a multimedia designer creates a new media image from an existing item, current systems store the new object as an independent image. This space is wasted since the data already exists in the system. In order to eliminate this wasted space, views of stored objects should be used ... View full abstract»

    No single mechanism can be expected to give optimal retrieval in all cases and many problems have been reported concerning the difficulty of making a unique choice at the design stage of information retrieval systems. The paper presents a flexible model for the information retrieval process, which provides relevance feedback facilities and embodies a mechanism to exploit a typology of information ...

    An important issue in multimedia information systems is the lack of an integrated model for complete representation of the multimedia objects and applications. We present an object oriented database model that aims at representation of multimedia objects and applications. The application representation is based on composition (spatial and temporal) modelling and scenario modelling. An important fe... View full abstract»

    We describe a new indexing structure named the MB+-tree which has been designed to assist content-based retrieval in image and video databases. The types of queries considered are the nearest-neighbor query based on a weighted Euclidean-distance similarity measure and the range query, both in a multidimensional space. The indexing structure can support queries which retrieve a large num... View full abstract»
