Several approaches to visualizing simulated data are described. It is noted that a centralized video animation facility represents the state of the art in scientific visualization, but is too expensive to replicate widely. Methods used at LANL for connecting supercomputers with display units, ranging from dumb terminals to powerful workstations, are also described. Of particular interest is the Scientific Visualization Workbench, an inexpensive and effective way of using 'televisualization' to move data from supercomputer to user and to modify the user's display. The implication of higher speed networks are discussed.<>
