Apple Qmaster Sharing Window

Compressor includes a distributed processing feature that you can use to speed up your
transcoding jobs. It allows you to harness the power of multiple computers on your local
network to spread out the work. The Apple Qmaster Sharing window, opened by choosing
Apple Qmaster > Share This Computer, provides most of the controls needed to configure
a distributed processing system. For details on setting it up, see

You use Share Monitor to monitor the progress of all transcoding batch activity, including
estimates for the transcoding time remaining for all jobs. Share Monitor is a separate
application that can be opened without opening Compressor. For more details on Share
Monitor, see the Share Monitor User Manual.
