The last decade has seen an incredible proliferation of multimedia data: every news organization now has vast stores of media data ranging from photographs to video clips to audio segments. In addition, as many companies and organizations (e.g. the National Archives) move from a "paper medium to a "digital medium, they are increasingly digitizing their paperwork, leading to a vast array of multimedia data. Museums are routinely and regularly producing multimedia presentations of their collections. As the cost of computer storage decreases, more and more organizations are storing an array of multimedia data - these include recordings of meetings and talks, surveillance video, Powerpoint slides, and many others. This book treats video, audio, image, and text databases and their combinations, and teaches all about the building, storage, manipulation, and information retrieval of them all--with the state of the art technology in mind.
