Paper Abstract

In this paper, we describe a multimedia system architecture consisting of: (1) an information management subsystem, (2) a storage subsystem, and (3) a network subsystem. Whereas the information management subsystem provides means for identifying the set of multimedia objects that may be pertinent to a client’s query, the storage subsystem ensures that multimedia objects are efficiently stored and retrieved from secondary storage devices. The network subsystem, on the other hand, guarantees timely delivery of the multimedia objects accessed by the storage subsystem to each of the client sites. The main goal of this paper is to identify and discuss the research issues involved in designing each of these three subsystems.
