An integrated media image information storage and retrieval system processes information supplied by different types of media. A processor-based network server operates as a system interface between one or more user control terminals, a media image capture station through which media image input/output devices are coupled to the network server, and a memory for storing media image files to be retrieved for reproduction. A supervisory media image manipulation and control program is accessed through a supervisory graphical user interface at any user control terminal, and has embedded subordinate media image manipulation programs for different types of media and information formats. When using the interface to import information from an arbitrary medium, the user is able to generate a first, index storage file, and a supplemental text description-based file, so as to facilitate rapid retrieval of any type of data, regardless of its original format (e.g. text, picture, text-picture combination, video, audio) and regardless of the capture medium or source from which it is imported into the system.
