Title: Multimedia in cultural heritage collections : a model and applications
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: The paper presents a multimedia database model accounting for the representation of documents, collections and the associated metadata. Appropriate structures are provided for descriptive metadata and for metadata resulting from automatic content analysis. The model is based on the identification and unification of the main concepts in the archival standards and the audiovisual area. The main features of the model, designed to support multimedia database applications, axe the integration of descriptive and content analysis metadata, the association of metadata to collections as well as to items, the extensibility with respect to the inclusion of new descriptors and the support to several retrieval modes. The MetaMedia application development platform, based on the model, has been used to support the construction of a historic documentation collection where a common web interface provides collection administrators, metadata creators and visitors a multi-faceted view of the repository.
