Virtual Point of Presence is a project research, directed by C System in association with Sysman Srl and Politecnico di Torino, aimed at studying and developing a cutting-edge communication area and the creation of a low bandwidth consumption videoconferencing system, composed by a Virtual Point of Presence controlled by a human-overseen avatar.

The project is aimed at developing a virtual video communication framework in order to enable the integration between user and operator with the following features:

  • communication will be enabled by multimedial spots (V-PoP) equipped with high-resolution screens as well as interactive devices;
  • information will by displayed through a virtual environment where the player is allowed to use the shared objects;
  • a 3D avatar will represent the remote operator reproducing the human behaviour.
