A Distributed Multimedia Data Management Over the Grid
This paper proposes a distributed multimedia data management architecture, which can efficiently store and retrieve multimedia data across several nodes of a Grid environment. The main components of the proposed system comprises of a distributed multidimensional index structure, a distributed query manager handling content-based information retrievals and a load balancing technology. The proposed distributed query manager embeds the high-level semantic relationships among the multimedia data objects into the k-NN based similarity search, thus bridging the semantic gap and increasing the relevance of query results manifold. This research has two major usabilities.
