The well established techniques for video and audio streaming have become the primary inspiration to focus our research towards 3D Streaming. In 3D streaming, the model is buffered and rendered instead of complete download. The central idea of this paper is to visualize the typical 3D human brain model at different resolutions based on the client’s requirement at a rapid rate with necessary interactions. This is achieved by initially streaming the simplified version of 3D human brain and then the refinements are streamed based on the client’s requirement. The experiment results and analysis affirms the fact that this type of multi resolution streaming reduces the initial time to present the rendered 3D model to the requested clients. Experiments are further conducted to compare the quality of the multi resolution models that are being rendered with respect to the original model.
