Abstract

MPEG-2 Video standard is a high resolution digital video format developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) that specifies the coded bit stream for high quality digital video. MPEG-2 Video encoding is a heavy-duty task that needs a lot of processing power. The video encoding time depends mostly on the computer's CPU clock speed. To make the encoding process faster and better on existing Microsoft Windows (MS) platform (98IMe/20001XP), distributed processing of MPEG-2 Video encoding (DPMVE) system can be implemented using TCP/IP with existing PCs on a 1011 00 Mbps Local Area Network (LAN). The video encoding process can be distributed to all connected computers that are idle and fully utilize them. When each computer finishes the encoding process, the result will be returned and combined at the main computer that originated the job. Instead of doing the MPEG-2 Video encoding job alone, distribution ofthe MPEG-2 Video encoding process is better and faster by utilizing idle PCs. It also saves a lot of time over doing such heavy-duty processing with just one computer. Multiple experiments were carried out from one to fifteen PCs in the computer lab of Masters of Education, KUiTTHO. The results obtained from this research prove that the DPMVE system has met the DP feature, which is, the combination ofa numbers ofPCs to do MPEG- 2 Video encoding at the speed of a super computer on MS Windows platform.
