To enable efficient authoring, management, and access to multimedia content, the media data has to be augmented by semantic metadata and functionality. The semantic representation has to be integrated with domain ontologies to fully exploit domain-specific knowledge. This knowledge can be used within the authoring process and for the efficient management of multimedia content, as well as for refining ambiguous user queries by closing the conceptual gap between the user and the information to be

In our previous research, we have introduced Enhanced Multimedia Meta Objects (EMMOs) as a new approach for semantic multimedia meta modeling, as well as the query algebra EMMA, which is adequate and complete with regard to the EMMO model. This paper illustrates how ontological knowledge can be used within the authoring process of EMMOs, can be integrated into the EMMO knowledge structures, and can be exploited for refining EMMA queries.
