Early single camera prototype
TeleWindow is a finished experimental telepresence research project conducted under the guidance of Michael Naimark. The aim was to explore how a two-way, one to one communication, "telepresence window", system can be developed and how this system can aid communication in the digital age. Utilizing these different ingredients, we can prototype a device that can offer features such as two-way eye contact, stereoscopy, and telepresence. All done in realtime.
Currently, we are using four Intel RealSense cameras in order to create a volumetric pointcloud representation of a person, and then we correct perspective based on the head/eye positions of the user. The stereoscopic eye-tracked volumetric display was acquired through SeeFront.
Four camera coverage demonstrated through multicolor splat.
Diminishing occlusions through multi-cam coverage.
Rough real life environment capture. Monoscopic view for demonstration.
Demonstration of realtime movement and capture in the rendered virtual environment.
