About Oracle Multimedia on Windows

Oracle Multimedia (formerly Oracle interMedia) is a feature that enables Oracle Database to store, manage, and retrieve images.

Oracle Multimedia also helps DICOM format medical images and other DICOM data, audio, video, or other heterogeneous media data in an integrated fashion with other enterprise information. Oracle Multimedia extends Oracle Database reliability, availability, and data management to multimedia content in traditional, Internet, electronic commerce, medical, and media-rich applications.

If you install Standard Edition 2, or Enterprise Edition, then Oracle Database Configuration Assistant starts automatically at the end of installation. If you choose any Oracle Database Configuration Assistant installation type other than Customized, then Oracle Multimedia does not require manual configuration. All tasks described in this section are performed automatically.

If you select Customized installation, then Oracle Database Configuration Assistant guides you through configuration of Oracle Multimedia.
