  • We conducted two experiments to investigate how stereoscopy and technologies that allow individual eye contact affect the impression of telepresence in videoconferencing. Telepresence is defined as the degree to which participants of a telemeeting get the impression of sharing space with the remote site. Results revealed, among other things, that stereoscopy increases telepresence and makes videoconferencing more attractive. In addition, we found that reduced eye contact angles enhance the… CONTINUE READING
