Abstract:

Due to the proliferation of computer networks in the professional world and the subsequent pursuit of new uses for them, the task of implementing applications requiring graphics transmission naturally arises. This task is unique among other networking problems due to the nature of graphics processing itself. Graphics applications require manipulation of a large amount of pixel data which must be displayed in a timely manner and be free from errors, as any slight deficiency is immediately recognizable. Several application programs were written in C to demonstrate the usefulness of graphics transmission in the medical field. Examples include a generalized ful.l~screen image transmitter for real digitized images (such as X-rays) and an animated EEG display. Though specific in terms of application, these demonstration programs illustrate some general principles in graphics transmission which demand consideration.
