A plurality of serial neighborhood transformation pipelines are provided for simultaneously operating on adjacent segments of a partitioned image matrix. Techniques are disclosed for bi-directionally transferring pixel data on the edges of adjoining segments of the image matrix between adjacent processors in a manner which minimizes the number of interconnections therebetween. In such manner a parallel pipeline image processing system can be implemented in integrated circuit form while keeping the number of pins for each stage in the pipeline to a minimum.
