Oracle interMedia, a feature available for Oracle databases, provides multimedia utilities in a database environment. At the release of Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Corporation changed the name of Oracle interMedia to Oracle Multimedia.[1]


interMedia manages multimedia data within an Oracle database under transaction control (see transaction processing); using by default database schemas named ORDSYS and ORDPLUGINS. (The "ORD" prefix designates "object-relational data".)

Alternatively, an Oracle database can use interMedia to store and index meta-information together with external references that enable efficient access to media-content stored outside the database.
