Continuous Multimedia Data Retrieval
Continuous multimedia is widely used in many applications nowadays. Continuous multimedia objects, such as audio and video streams, being stored on disks with different requirements of bandwidths, are required to be retrieved continuously without interruption. The response time is an important measurement in supporting continuous multimedia streams. Several strategies are proposed in order to satisfy the requirements of all users in a multi-user environment where multiple users are trying to retrieve different continuous multimedia streams together.
Several multimedia data retrieval techniques are proposed to support the real-time display of continuous multimedia objects. There are three categories . The first category is to sacrifice the quality of the data in order to guarantee the required bandwidth of multimedia objects. The existing techniques either use lossy compression techniques (such as predictive , frequency oriented , and...
