Does RVIZ use PCL to render visual data?

I want to stream rviz data to my mobile device via kiwi but I can only do that if RVIZ is using PCL to render it's data because kiwi only streams in PCL data. I looked at the RVIZ source but couldn't see any trace of PCL.

Are PCL and RVIZ linked together at all? Or is there an easier way to stream RVIZ data to my mobile?

It doesn't use pcl. You can try http://robotwebtools.org/

Edit , you can also convert ROS pointclouds to PCL pointclouds ( http://wiki.ros.org/pcl_ros ) and then stream them to the KiwiViewer as PCL pointclouds using their network transport (not sure how they send the data to the device).

I checked out robotwebtools.org and that may be of some value but I have to look into it more. Your edit looks to be much more promising. I appreciate you revisiting this question to add that information. Thank you and +1 for the extra effort.
