Multi-media ambiance communication refers to a means of shared-space communication, that makes use of actual moving pictures captured by video camera, combined with the laws of perspective, as used in painting and the visual characteristics of human beings, to establish a photo-realistic quality three-dimensional image space that users can naturally feel part of. We aim to enable this ambiance communication by basing the shared-space on actual moving pictures rather than on an accurate three-dimensional image space, such as is used in computer graphics.
