Abstract

This paper describes a user interface for video chat that is capable of panning, tilting, and zooming (PTZ) operation using head tracking. The approach is to map a captured 3D position from head tracker to PTZ parameters of a remote camera so that a user can intuitively change the view just as people change their sight by moving their head. The preliminary user study gave encouraging results and clarified the point for further improvement.
