This video shows work done in 1995 by Kimiya Yamaashi, Jeremy Cooperstock, Tracy Narine and myself as part of the Ontario Telepresence Project.
Most video conferencing systems focus on the remote person or object that are central to the purpose of the meeting. In comparison to same-place meetings, one has very little sense of the background or periphery - things like if someone off-camera has entered the remote room, for example. This system shows one approach of maintaining an awareness of both the foreground and the periphery.
