With the proliferation of inexpensive cameras, video surveillance applications are becoming ubiquitous in many domains such as public safety and security, manufacturing, intelligent transportation systems, and healthcare. IP-based video surveillance technologies, in particular, are able to bring traditional video surveillance centers to virtually any computer at any location with an Internet connection. Today's IP-based video surveillance systems, however, are designed for specific classes of applications. For instance, one cannot use a system designed for incident detection on highways to monitor patients in a healthcare facility. To support rapid development of video surveillance applications, the authors designed and implemented a new class of general purpose database management system, the Live Video Database Management System (LVDBMS).
