ImageStream and RemoteView allow the usage of Remote Rendering via VTK or ParaView on the server side by interactively delivering images to the vtk.js client. The vtkRemoteView is just a wrapper to vtkImageStream which simplify its initialization and usage. This add-on allow the creation of a (VTK/ParaView)Web application without an actual dependency to the ParaViewWeb library.
