Efficient and Flexible Web Access to Art-Historical Image Collections
Modern object-relational database systems are capable of managing multimedia data, e.g. image, video and audio. In this paper we study how such universal database systems can be used for implementing self-tuning and adaptive digital image archives. The presented framework is based on the idea that multimedia objects are often stored redundantly to support broadest system access for diverse clients from heterogenous environments. There is a large variety of ways to store and deliver multimedia data in various formats. Partitioning the data into formats that are physically stored in the database and those that are converted into any delivery format on-demand poses a nontrivial optimization problem. We present a new optimization algorithm which has been implemented and evaluated with the commercial database system DB2 Universal Database from IBM. The work is part of the HERON project, a project committed to the creative use of computer science and technology to advance the study of arts ...
