We present a parallel implementation of the Fresnel transform suitable for reconstructing large digital holograms. Our method has a small memory footprint and utilizes the spare resources of a distributed set of desktop PCs connected by a network. We show how we parallelize the Fresnel transform and discuss how it is constrained by computer and communication resources. Finally, we demonstrate how a 4.3 gigapixel digital hologram can be reconstructed and how the efficiency of the method changes for different memory and processor configurations.
