Abstract

Teleconferencing has developed through the stages of audio, and video, and now data-conferencing (including fax, file exchange, shared-document editing, etc), and is poised to move on to virtual reality (VR) methods. VR may involve the mixing of real and synthetic video (for example, placing the real video images of peoples’ head and shoulders round a synthetic conference table), or even just purely synthetic video (for example, using completely synthetic representations of people— ‘avatars’).
