Paper Abstract

A parallel computer for image processing has been built by the Eastman Kodak Company. This computer is composed of an arbitrary number of transputers connected in a toroidal array with a controller node and is accessible over the VME bus from a host computer. Many benchmarks have demonstrated the superior performance such a parallel machine can give. A special, high-level language for image processing on the parallel processor has been developed that provides simple but powerful constructs for operating on images.
