Multimedia data processing refers to a combined processing of multiple data streams of various types. Recent advances in hardware, software and digital signal processing allow for the integration of different data streams which may include voice, digital video, graphics and text within a single platform. A simple example may be the simultaneous use of audio, video and closed-caption data for content-based searching and browsing of multimedia databases or the merging of vector graphics, text, and digital video. This rapid development is the driving force behind the convergence of the computing, telecommunications, broadcast, and entertainment technologies. The field is developing rapidly and emerging multimedia applications, such as intelligent visual search engines, multimedia databases, Internet/mobile audio-visual communication, and desktop video-conferencing will all have a profound impact on modern professional life, health care, education, and entertainment.
