Sensing and processing multimedia information is one of the basic traits of human beings: The audiovisual system registers and transports surrounding images and sounds. This complex re­cording system, complemented by the senses of touch, taste, and smell, enables perception and provides humans with data for analysing and interpreting the environment. Imitating this perception and the simulation of the processing was and still is one of the major leitmotifs of multimedia technology developments. The goal is to find a representation for every type of knowledge, which makes the reception and processing of information as easy as possible. The need to process given information, deliver it, and explain it to a certain audience exists in nearly all areas of day-to-day life: commerce, science, education, and entertainment (Smeulders, Worring, Santini, Gupta, & Jain, 2000).
