Jain, "The Virage Image Search Engine: An OpenFramework for Image Management", SPIE, Storage and Retrieval for Still Images and Video Databases, vol 2670, 1996, pages 76-87. Now, promises have matured into viable products. 5-12 ------- Information can be stored on optical disk using either facsimile format or the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) format. Moving Non-SMS-Managed Data Sets. .. .. .. . In a storage/retrieval subsystem for capturing image data and information data in real time data packets from documents received at an approximate rate of 30 documents per second using an image capture module, and wherein said subsystem is managed by a host computer, and includes a plurality of storage/retrieval modules (SRM) which store said image and information data in real time for subsequent conveyance to any one of a plurality of image workstations or printers, a storage/retrieval subsystem comprising: (a) a first cluster of storage/retrieval modules (SRMs) wherein each SRM is interconnected by a first local area network controller means to every other SRM in the said first cluster, wherein said first cluster of storage/retrieval modules receives said packets of image data and information data from an image capture module via a first point-to-point optical controller means; (b) a second cluster of storage/retrieval (SRM) modules wherein each SRM is interconnected to every other SRM in said second cluster by a second local area network controller, and wherein a second point-to-point optical controller means enables data exchanges between said first cluster of SRMs and said second cluster of SRMs, and wherein said first cluster of SRMs and said second cluster of SRMs each have at least one point-to-point optical controller means for exchanging image and information data packets between said clusters; (c) and wherein each of said storage/retrieval modules (SRM) includes: (c1) means for receiving/transmitting digitized data signals containing said packets of image data and information data; (c2) means for storing said digitized data signals into separate non-image information and image data files onto identified areas of disk units, said means for storing including: (c2a) disk drive means for accessing associated disk units; (c3) means for retrieving said electrical data signals from said separate files, said retrieval occurring without alteration concurrently with the ongoing data packet storage operations on said disk units; (c4) means for transmitting retrieved image and information data packets from said disk units to a printer or requesting workstation for display; (c5) means for communicating with a host computer to receive operational instructions and to transmit said non-image information data for storage and use by said host computer; (c6) parallel system bus data conveyance means for linking said means for storing, said means for retrieving, said means for transmitting image and information data retrieved from disk, and said means for communicating with said host computer (c7) means for maintaining data integrity of said image and information data packets to insure that no operator alteration can occur. 12.
