Paper Abstract

Image processing operations are computational intensive and are usually solved by parallel algorithms implemented either on dedicated parallel computing devices or a network of workstations. With the increasing computing power of Personal Computer (PC) and better networking facilities, it is now feasible to perform distributive computing on a PC network. As the cost/performance ratio of PC is high, this provides a cost effective solution for solving image processing problems. In this paper, we describe how to implement distributive image processing algorithms on a peer-to-peer PC network under the WindowsNTTM operating system and the efficiency of such algorithms will be discussed.
