The paper presents an overview of the IMCOP system which refers to the general modern idea of intelligent discovering and sharing the multimedia content using the Internet. An extended background within the framework of the subject matter is presented at the beginning. The main components of the IMCOP system as well as concept of complex multimedia objects known as the CMO objects are introduced then. Categories of applied web services with an insight into the tasks they were designated to are farther also described in details. Finally, performance aspects of the IMCOP system are reported. The conclusion includes a summary of IMCOP’s advantages as well as discussion about its drawbacks with an insight into potential future improvements.
