Remote visualization of volumetric images has gained importance over the past few years in medical and industrial applications. Volume visualization is a computationally intensive process, often requiring hardware acceleration to achieve a real time viewing experience. One remote visualization model that can accomplish this would transmit rendered images (with dedicated hardware) from the server based on view-point requests from a client. For a given server-client bandwidth, an efficient compression scheme is vital for transmitting high quality rendered images. In this paper, we present a new compression scheme that utilizes the geometric relationship between view-points to exploit the correlation between successive rendered images. The proposed method performs better than AVC, the state of the art video compression standard. Additionally, our scheme obviates motion estimation between rendered images, enabling significant reduction to the complexity of the encoder.
