## Abstract

The intrinsic independent features of the optimal codebook cubes searching process in fractal video compression systems are examined and exploited. The design of a suitable parallel algorithm reflecting the concept is presented. The Message Passing Interface (MPI) is chosen to be the communication tool for the implementation of the parallel algorithm on distributed memory parallel computers. Experimental results show that the parallel algorithm is able to reduce the compression time and achieve a high speed-up without changing the compression ratio and the quality of the decompressed image. A scalability test was also performed, and the results show that this parallel algorithm is scalable.
