A system and method for processing video uses a message protocol to communicate between computing units. An image request message is sent to an administrator process of a master node from at least one slave process to request an image to process. Responsive to the request message, an image name message is sent to a requesting slave process from the administrator process to retrieve the image from a queue. The image associated with the image name is processed. Images to process are requested until a completion message is received from the administrator process.
