DOCXS - A Distributed Computing Environment for Multimedia Data Processing

Abstract

This paper presents DocXS, a distributed computing environment for multimedia data processing, which was developed at the University of Mu¨ nster, Germany. DocXS is platform independent due to its implementation in Java, is freely available for non-commercial research, and can be installed on standard office computers. The main advantage of DocXS is that it does not require its users to care about code distribution or parallelization. Algorithms can be programmed using an Eclipse-based user interface and the resulting Matlab and Java operators can be visually connected to graphs representing complex data processing workflows. Experiments with DocXS show that it scales very well with only a small overhead.
