Paper Abstract

This paper describes an environment for distributed visualization. Distributed visualization is a twofold concept. It encompasses spreading the computational load of graphical simulations over a local area network and distributing access to graphical information directly to the desktops of those needing it. At The Ohio Supercomputer Center, a typical user work area not only has network access to other computing resources such as supercomputers, but he also has access to a graphical network of visual devices. Scarce resources such as full-color frame buffers and digital video recorders are allocated and accessed using transparent network tools. This system will be described in detail, including philosophy of design and equipment utilization.
