The ever-increasing complexity of generic Multimedia- Content-Analysis-based (MCA) solutions, their processing power demanding nature and the need to prototype and assess solutions in a fast and cost-saving manner motivated the development of the Cassandra Framework. The combination of state-of-the-art network and gridcomputing solutions and recently standardized interfaces facilitated the set-up of this framework, forming the basis for multiple cross-domain and cross-organizational collaborations . It enables distributed computing scenario simulations for e.g. Distributed Content Analysis (DCA) across Consumer Electronics (CE) In-Home networks, but also the rapid development and assessment of complex multi-MCA-algorithm-based applications and system solutions. Furthermore, the framework’s modular nature - logical MCA units are wrapped into so-called Service Units (SU) - ease the split between systemarchitecture- and algorithmic-related work and additionally facilitate reusability, extensibility and upgradeability of those SUs.
