     In order to demonstrate the computational abilities of the PS3, several basic image processing tasks are implemented and compared with desktop PCs, equipped with general-purpose micro- processors. This work reports lessons learned in the process of building some fundamental image processing tasks. It also describes the architecture of the Cell Broadband Engine and provides information about developing applications given the architecture. It provides an introduction to setting up a high- performance image processing environment with a clus- ter of such relatively inexpensive PS3 units.
