The improvements in disk speeds have not kept up with improvements in processor and memory speeds. Many techniques have been proposed and utilized to maximize the bandwidths of storage devices. These techniques have proven useful for conventional data, but when applied to multimedia data, they tend to be insufficient or inefficient due to the diversified(More)
1 The improvements in disk speeds have not kept up with improvements in processor and memory speeds. Conventional storage techniques, in the face of multi-media data, are ineecient and/or inadequate. Here, an eecient multimedia object allocation strategy is presented. We describe a multimedia object model, the object and storage device characteristics, and(More)
As the number of video streams to be supported by a Digital Video Delivery System (DVDS) increases, we more and more start to understand that the ability to reliably and cost-eeciently support a considerable number of video streams (in the magnitude of tens of thousands) largely depends on software capabilities. Even in the presence of the best hardware(More)
t the heart of multimedia information systems lies the multimedia database management system. Traditionally, a database consists of a controlled collection of data related to a given entity, while a database management system, or DBMS, is a collection of interrelated data with the set of programs used to define, create, store, access, manage, and query the(More)
Although traditional software engineering focuses on development Component-based software engineering (CBSE) processes must focus on integration. In this paper, we elaborate on this focus into a process framework for CBSE consisting of four major activity areas: engineering, business, management, and overarching. We show how these activities are concurrent(More)
