MediaManager : A Distributed Multimedia Management System for Content-Based Retrieval , Authoring and Presentation

  title={MediaManager : A Distributed Multimedia Management System for Content-Based Retrieval , Authoring and Presentation},
  author={Shu-Ching Chen and Mei-Ling Shyu and Na Zhao},
A distributed multimedia management system named MediaManager is presented in this paper. Unlike many existing multimedia systems, our MediaManager supports content-based retrieval, multimedia authoring, and multimedia presentation together in a single framework. There are also three main characteristics in MediaManager. Firstly, it provides friendly icon-based query interfaces for the users to browse and retrieve multimedia data from the database. Secondly, the multimedia augmented transition… Expand
– METIS – A Flexible Database Foundation for the Unified Management of Multimedia Contents
Multimedia database systems largely focus on the management of media of one particular type and suffer from inflexible architectures, which makes it difficult to adapt them to individual applicationExpand
METIS: a flexible foundation for the unified management of multimedia assets
An architectural overview of METIS is given, a database foundation for a unified management of any variety of media that is flexibly customizable to different application needs, based on an expressive data model that can instantiate any desired scheme for media management, description, and classification.

A Multimedia Scripting System for Endangered Language Learning
MSS provides a user friendly environment to ensure that general users (without strong technical backgrounds) in an on-line community can effectively and collectively create multimedia stories and game scripts for a common cause. Expand


Streaming SMIL Presentations via a Multimedia Semantic Model
An abstract semantic model called Multimedia Augmented Transition Network (MATN) is used to model the conceptual structure of SMIL, as well as the temporal relations and synchronization control, and a novel architecture based on Java JMF technology is proposed. Expand
A flexible image retrieval and multimedia presentation management system for multimedia databases
A multimedia query and presentation management system for multimedia databases that uses an unsupervised segmentation method for image and video feature extraction and a presentation design interface systems is provided that allows query results to be used to create multimedia presentations. Expand
Multimedia Analysis and Retrieval System
The approach based on supporting content-based retrieval over visual features has become a promising research direction and is evidenced by several prototypes[15, 8, 6, 4] and commercial systems that have been built recently. Expand
Describing the MIPS multimedia presentation system with the IMMPS reference model
The MIPS system retrieves information from a set of distributed heterogeneous information sources as a result of a single query, and generates an integrated hypermedia presentation of the answer. TheExpand
A Spatio-Temporal Semantic Model for Multimedia Database Systems and Multimedia Information Systems
An abstract semantic model based on an augmented transition network (ATN) is presented, which provides three major capabilities: multimedia presentations, temporal/spatial multimedia database searching, and multimedia browsing. Expand
Semantic Models for Multimedia Database Searching and Browsing
Issues such as image/video segmentation, motion detection, object tracking, object recognition, knowledge-based event modeling, content-based retrieval, and key frame selections are presented for the first time in a single book. Expand
Query by Image and Video Content: The QBIC System
The QBIC system is described and its query capabilities are demonstrated, which allows queries on large image and video databases based on example images, user-constructed sketches and drawings, selected color and texture patterns, camera and object motion, and other graphical information. Expand

  • 2001
VISMap is presented, a visual information seeking system that extends the traditional query paradigms of query-by-example and query- by-sketch and replaces the models of relevance feedback with principles from information visualization and concept representation. Expand
FotoFile: a consumer multimedia organization and retrieval system
FotoFile is an experimental system for multimedia organization and retrieval, based upon the design goal of making multimedia content accessible to non-expert users that blends human and automatic annotation methods. Expand
VisualSEEk: a fully automated content-based image query system
The VisualSEEk system is novel in that the user forms the queries by diagramming spatial arrangements of color regions by utilizing color information, region sizes and absolute and relative spatial locations. Expand
