Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MULTIPERSPECTIVE TELEPRESENCE COMMUNICATION
Abstract:
The invention refers to a method and system for processing, transmitting and receiving images of a first set of users in a first location in communication with a second set of users in a second location. The method comprising the steps: recording the first set of users with a plurality of cameras distributed according to the position of the second set of user in the second location, recording each camera a image of the first set of users; - separating the part of the image belonging to each user of the first set of users from the parts belonging to other users recorded by the same camera, obtaining therefore for each user and for each camera a image of the user; - encoding of multiple video signals, each containing the images of each user and sending the encoded video signals to a receiving module in the second location; - sending control signals form a control module for managing a communication between a location of the second set of users and the location of the first set of users; - decoding the encoded video signal received by the receiving module; - composing one multiperspective image of the first set of users containing all the images of each user; - showing the multiperspective image of the first set of users to the second set of users by mean of a display.
