The importance of scientific visualization for both science and engineering endeavors has been well recognized. Televisualization becomes necessary because of the physical distribution of data, computation resources, and users involved in the visualization process. However, televisualization poses a number of challenges to the designers of communication protocols. A pipelined televisualization (PTV) model is proposed for efficient implementation of a class of visualization applications. Central to the proposed research is the development of a segment of streaming IPC (interprocess communication) mechanism in support of efficient pipelining across very high speed internetworks. This requires exploration of special issues arising from extending a pipeline across networks with errors and high latency, determination of alternative solutions, and evaluation of such solutions. The novel aspects of the proposed segment streaming mechanism include a two-level flow control method and an intelligent error control mechanism.
