Cross-cutting multimedia information integration is essential in many fields, and is indispensable in analysis and comparison of multimedia documents. In this paper, we outline how integrated search in multimedia repositories can be applied toward automation of patent examination process, which is currently done with text search tools and manual examination of images and drawings.
