In a multimedia database, information cannot been always accessed by numeracal or textual attributes, we need often to analyze the content of images. Due to the high volume of data, a multimedia database is space and time consuming, the design of an eficient management system has to consider two major aspects: the storage space and the time retrieval by content. In order to reduce the data volume space and the time retrieval we have developed a method allowing, firstly, to store only compressed

This method has been evaluated either on monoprocessor workstation and on our SIMD parallel computer called SYMPHONIE (ldnear army processors, developed in our labomtory for infmred space applications). SYMPHONIE is an embedded multi-SlMU modular architecture based on MCM integration with 92 processors (92 bits) per chip so 128 processors can take place on a single VME board. SYMPHONIE is designed for real time vision and multimedia applicataons.
