one approach which can be used - is similar to multiple VNC ( remote
desktop ) connection.
So, there is one 'server' Blender and many viewer screens, which can send
commands and updates to 'host' computer ( in our case - host Blender ).
as ffmpeg is already used to save video, and ffmpeg has capabilities to
send video over network (
http://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/wiki/StreamingGuide) the initial
prototype could be coded relatively easily - there is just
need to encode user activities and send them over the net and translate
into 'host' computer clicks.
as with other vnc solutions there will be a somewhat noticeable lag, but
still might be useful to discuss some issues or demonstrate particular
points to the team.
