Hi Randy,

The SCI Institute has been working on a remote visualization client
specifically tailored to this kind of collaboration. We'll be featuring this
in a demo at Supercomputing 2002 in November. Currently we have a Java
prototype application, but we're working on something a bit more robust. It
will be used in conjunction with a Linux PIG.

If I remember correctly, Mike Papka (and all) at Argonne has been working on
remote visualization using a compressed video stream that's supposed to look

Hope that helps,
