Resumo da palestra:

A user's videoconferencing experience often parallels that of the
videoconferencing history: the vision and expectation at first is
invariably followed by frustrations and disappointments. A set of common
assumptions has emerged from these collective experiences. By designing,
implementing, and evaluating a multiparty videoconferencing system, we
provide evidence to challenge four common assumptions about
videoconferencing: (1) high-fidelity low-latency AV requires expensive
hardware, (2) extensive training is required for installation and
operation, (3) life-size displays of remote participants are ideal, and
(4) eye contact is not possible. Next, I will give a demo of the world´s
first software-based TV-quality videoconferencing system. The software
embeds as a web component, and transforms Internet Explorer into a
videoconferencing portal; as a consequence, the software does not require
installation and can be started as easily as clicking on a web page.
