Paper Abstract

Tarsys is a video archive system which combines the flexible organization of multimedia databases, the efficiency of real-time filesystems and the scalability of tertiary storage (magnetic tape libraries and optical jukeboxes). Heavy data transfers over the network are usual between video servers and their clients. Tarsys reduces network traffic through the use of a remote manipulation protocol, so that only required fragments of multimedia data are transferred. Tarsys provides a suitable platform for the automatic extraction of content information from multimedia data. It also provides management of content based queries and efficient access to video fragments found by queries. These facilities in the access to archived videos make it ideal for large TV digital archives and scientific databases where is constitutes a platform for quick development of custom video analysis.
