Paper Abstract

As a rule, different image processing user communities have required such different hardware environments that it has not seemed feasible to propose a single system that would be suitable for virtually all of them. After careful analyses of different systems, a decomposition into separate logical subsystems is possible. A software architecture is proposed that integrates these logical units in such a way as to allow the same architecture to be implemented on an almost unlimited range of hardware, yet remain able to be optimized in accordance with the particular needs of the system users. In particular, a wide range of implementations can be described, which range from a dedicated single-user system with rather limited capabilities through a network of a hundred or more users, each having substantial real time and near-real time processing resources.
