The advent of multimedia computing and information processing have necessitated the need for multimedia database management systems (DBMSs). A multimedia DBMS provides for the efficient storage and manipulation of multimedia data. Multimedia data usually manifests itself in diverse forms such as text, images, voice, graphics, and video. The composition of multimedia data has brought new requirements and issues, which differ from traditional DBMSs. The spatial, temporal, storage, retrieval, integration, and presentation requirements of multimedia data are significantly different from those of traditional data. In this article, we look into the basic nature of multimedia data; highlight the need for multimedia DBMSs; and discuss the requirements and issues necessary for developing multimedia DBMSs.
