3D Communication System, Tele-Conference System, Gesture Awareness, Multi-View Auto Stereoscopic 3D Display
The interest in immersive video conference system exists now for many years from both the sides and the commercialization point of view as well as from a research perspective. The technological advances in the field like display and camera technology as well as the processing hardware lead a way to a new generation of immersive tele-conference systems. On one hand, large scale and high definition displays which significantly enhance the feeling of virtual presence. On the other hand, new fast graphics board solutions allow a high algorithmic parallelization in a consumer PC environment. The goal of this research paper is to discuss general issues and problems of future generation immersive multi-user 3D video conference systems. Further on, it provides a challenging first result and proposes solutions for critical questions.
