From Large High-Resolution Displays to Tele-Presence, Oliver Staadt
Sprache des Titels:
Tele-Presence technology enables users at geographically distributed sites to collaborate in real time in a shared, simulated environment as if they were in the same physical space. This new paradigm for human-computer interaction is the ultimate synthesis of networking and media technologies. Prior projects, such as the blue-c and the National Tele-Immersion Initiative have developed prototype systems that addressed some of the challenges, but also highlighted unresolved issues and the need for further research. In this talk, I will present our vision of a novel compact tele-immersion system that will eventually support bidirectional communication and interaction between users located at more that two geographic sites.
