Abstract
The proposed research is indented to lead to the development of a commercial product that can create a virtual meeting presence by displaying the remote user?s face to achieve a presence. The goal is to render computer-generated objects and visualize them as real objects for the user, thus creating augmented reality system. The first step of achieving a virtual teleconference will be to capture the user?s face. Furthermore, we will use a head-mounted display (HMD) to project the other meeting attendees as if they are at the same location as the user while they are remotely located. A key difference between our proposed product and other efforts is that we offer means for 3D visualization at a cost effective desktop-level. Another key difference is that we offer mobile indoors and outdoors solution providing full face capturing capabilities without the requirement of many cameras (i.e. ?Sea of cameras? proposed by University of North Carolina for example) and is easily calibrated. Adastra Labs? vision for our final product is cost-effective deployable VTMC accessible for everyone.
