We describe functionality for determining an object database management system's suitability for developing multimedia applications. We discuss all levels of hardware and software support, as even the most ideal database software cannot operate independent of operating systems, networks, and hardware. A review of the multimedia support provided by current commercial and research object database management systems is also included.
