In recent days, there is an increasing demand in the transmission of multimedia data in several computer vision based applications. A noteworthy part required in multimedia applications is a computer with high processing rate and extensive stockpiling limit. In this chapter, we made an attempt to summarize the overview of multimedia, its application in various domain, etc. In addition, a detailed explanation of the issues present in the multimedia tools and applications is also discussed. Over the entire domain like transportation of huge volumes of media produced data, data management, synchronization, retrieval are the novel issues that are rising nowadays with the enhanced ease of access and availability to electronic multimedia data.
