Abstract

This chapter presents a multimedia archiving framework to describe the content of multimedia resources. This kind of content is very rich in terms of meanings and archiving systems have to be improved to consider such richness. This framework simplifies the multimedia management in existing applications, making it accessible for non-specialized developers. This framework is fully implemented on the REST architectural style, precisely mapping the notion of resource with media artifacts, and scaling to address the growing demand for media. It offers an extensive support for segmentation and annotation to attach semantics to content, helping search mechanisms to precisely index those content. A detailed example of the framework adoption by a medical imaging application for breast cancer diagnosis is presented.
