DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"This lecture describes NeWS, a system in which client messages containing PostScript programs are passed across the network to be executed by the server. This use of a programming language as a basis of communication protocol allows for the extensive range of the windowing system. NeWS also has a high-level imaging model that enables device-independent advanced rendering. Comparisons to similar systems are discussed."
