The remarkable advances made in computer and communication hardware/software system technologies have made it possible for us to use multimedia data for many purposes in various service areas. Considering the importance of developing an advanced processing environment for the acquisition, management, retrieval, creation, and utilization of large amounts of multimedia content, the “Advanced Multimedia Content Processing (AMCP)” research project has been started in Japan, focussing on the management of the continuous and semistructured features of multimedia content. In this paper, we will present a part of research results achieved by this project, along with the process from the first time the multimedia content is acquired/organized until it is delivered to and presented at the client side.
