In this paper, realization techniques of the parallel processing and the parallel network system for image processing are described. The parallel image processing system is constructed by the characterization of image processing and processor. Several problems are solved to achieve effective parallel processing and processor networking with the particular properties of image processing, which are reduction of communication quantity, equalization of load and delay depreciation on communication. A parallel image input device is developed for the flexible networking of parallel image processing. An abnormal region detection algorithm which is the basic function in machine vision is applied to evaluate the constructed parallel image processing system. The performance and effectiveness of the system are confirmed by experiments.
