Paper Abstract

Content-based retrieval on a large multimedia database attracts the interest of many researchers. However, the database architecture needed for content-based retrieval is still a problem. Traditional relation database systems do not support high-dimension feature form content description and indexing, and is thus limited in its content-based retrieval function. Some systems do support high-dimension feature form content description and indexing, but lack descriptions and query expressions on media object content and relations. In this paper, we present our study results on query mechanism and proposed CbExpr - a powerful, flexible query expression mechanism on a media object. Based on CbExpr, we proposed GMA (general mediabase architecture) - a general architecture for management and content-based retrieval on large media databases. We also present VideoBase, a content-based video retrieval system, present as example of GMA. Basic thoughts, considerations, and definitions are presented in this paper, along with some details for implementation.
