Can anyone help me out with information on how can one do batch rendering?
I mean that may be dumping the data for different videos to a high speed machine from which after some time we can collect the output videos?
Thanks in advance

You need to use network render aware software. Most high-end tools now support it in some form, although to get the best out of it you don't use a single fast machine, but a network of machines each doing their small part. It could be a frame, or in the case of some 3D software, perhaps only a small part of a frame (bucket renders can divide an image into segments to divvy up).
Some programs support render queues or batches for use on the machine that generated the batch. Premiere and After Effects can do this. Virtualdub has a Job Control option that allows for jobs to be batched. AutoGK can also do this.
If you use a renderer that allows for command line control then it isn't too difficult to create a controlling script to run jobs sequentially at a preset time.
