Abstract This paper discusses our efforts to improve the performance of the high-accuracy (HIAC) volume rendering system, based on cell projection, which is used to display unstructured, scientific data sets for analysis. The parallelization of HIAC, using the pthreads and MPI APIís, resulted in significant speedup, but interactive frame rates are not yet attainable for very large data sets.
