Tele-immersion is a technology that augments your space with real-time 3D projections of remote spaces thus facilitating the interaction of people from different places in virtually the same environment. Tele-immersion combines 3D scene recovery from computer vision, and rendering and interaction from computer graphics. We describe the real-time 3D scene acquisition using a new algorithm for trinocular stereo. We extend this method in time by combining motion and stereo in order to increase speed and robustness.
