MQF is a new XML based format designed to facilitate communication between disparate systems for applications involving multimedia query by content. Currently no standardized protocol exists which are able to provide flexibility in formulation of a query, such as the combination of any multimedia format (image, video, sound) to serve as query terms, combined with very complicated query conditions that can utilize a hierarchy of meta-search engines. In this work, we propose MQF as a flexible solution to serve as a communication format between a client and server for use in content based multimedia searching.
