Collaboration is often an afterthought to a project or development. In this paper we describe and analyze our experiences in developing collaborative technologies, most often involving the sharing of visual information. We have often developed these in a context that required us to retrofit existing analysis applications with collaboration capabili...

... first step in our solution is to allow the visualization expert to work in the usual fashion, in this case using ParaView, with an extension that streams the resulting visualization over the network as video to the remote scientists. The scientists run an application that can receive and display the incoming visualization data. The visualization frames are streamed by using a video codec that optimizes for bandwidth consumption by limiting the data it sends according to changes between frames (e.g., motion coding). This allows the stream to achieve a high frame rate and low latency, making it a convenient solution for collaborative visualization (Fig. ...
