Cloud computing rekindles old and imposes new challenges on remote visualization especially for interactive 3D graphics applications, e.g., in engineering and/or in entertainment. In this paper we present and discuss an approach entitled 'rich pixels' (short 'rixels') that balances the requirements concerning security and interactivity with the possibilities of hardware-accelerated post-processing and rendering, both on the server side as well as on the client side using WebGL.
