This paper introduces a framework for distributed parallel image signal extrapolation. Since high-quality image signal processing often comes along with a high computational complexity, a parallel execution is desirable. The proposed framework allows for the application of existing image signal extrapolation algorithms without the need to modify them for a parallel processing. The unaltered application of existing algorithms is achieved by dividing input images into overlapping tiles which are distributed to compute nodes via Message Passing Interface. In order to keep the computational overhead low, a novel image tiling algorithm is proposed. Using this algorithm, a nearly optimum tiling is possible at a very small processing time. For showing the efficacy of the framework, it is used for parallelizing a high-complexity extrapolation algorithm. Simulation results show that the proposed framework has no negative impact on extrapolation quality while at the same time offering good scaling behavior on compute clusters.
