Abstract

Immersive telecommunication is a new challenging field that enables a user to share a virtual space with remote participants. The main objective is to offer rich communication modalities, as similar as those used in the face-to-face meetings like gestures, gaze awareness, realistic images, and correct sound direction. Moreover, full body interaction with physics simulation is presented as a natural interface. As a result, the user can be immersed and has interaction with virtual objects including remote participants. This would overcome the limitations both of the conventional video-based telecommunication and also the VR-based collaborative virtual environment approaches.
