Title: COMMUNICATION DEVICE, COMMUNICATION METHOD, PROGRAM, AND TELEPRESENCE SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a communication device, a communication method, a program, and a telepresence system for enabling smoother communication. A sound processing unit processes a sound in accordance with a setting with respect to a specific sound when visual and voice communication is performed. For example, the sound processing unit performs processing with respect to a sound input by means of an input unit, and both a sound obtained by the processing performed by the sound processing unit and the original sound input by means of the input unit are transmitted. The sound processing unit also performs processing with respect to a sound received by a reception unit which receives a sound transmitted from a counterpart communication device, and causes an output unit to output a resultant sound. The present technique may be applied in a telepresence system, for example.
