From Cluster to Wall with VTK
This paper describes a new set of parallel rendering components for VTK, the Visualization Toolkit. The parallel rendering units allow for the rendering of vast quantities of geometry with a focus on cluster computers. Furthermore, the geometry may be displayed on tiled displays at full or reduced resolution. We demonstrate an interactive VTK application processing an isosurface consisting of nearly half a billion triangles and displaying on a power wall with a total resolution of 63 million pixels. We also demonstrate an interactive VTK application displaying the same geometry on a desktop connected to the cluster via a TCP/IP socket over 100BASE-T Ethernet.
