Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a scheme that allows a person to communicate with another person at a remote site while giving the realistic sensation as if the persons faced each other in close proximity by capturing the images of the person using a plurality of image capturing units. A remote communication system includes a projector configured to project, on to a screen, an image transmitted from a remote site. The screen has a plurality of the front cameras disposed thereon. A CPU performs an extraction process to extract a person part from each of images captured by the front cameras and a combining process to combine the images captured by the front cameras. The remote communication system further includes a projector that projects the image subjected to the extraction process and the combining process onto a screen set in the remote site.

La présente invention concerne un schéma qui permet à une personne de communiquer avec une autre personne sur un site distant tout en donnant la sensation réaliste que les personnes se font face de façon très proche en capturant les images de la personne grâce à une pluralité d'unités de capture d'image. Un système de communication à distance comprend un projecteur configuré pour projeter, sur un écran, une image transmise depuis un site distant. L'écran comporte une pluralité des caméras frontales disposée sur celui-ci. Une CPU effectue un processus d'extraction pour extraire une partie d'une personne de chacune des images capturées par les caméras frontales et un processus de combinaison servant à combiner les images capturées par les caméras frontales. Le système de communication à distance comprend aussi un projecteur qui projette l'image soumise au processus d'extraction et au processus de combinaison sur un écran installé sur le site distant.
