TEEVE Enabled Cyber Dancers


Utilizing a technology called TEEVE (Tele-immersive Environment for EVErbody) two computer science professors from the University of Illinois and the University of California at Berkeley teamed up with a choreographer to stage a live dance performance in 3-D video, even though the dancers were in two different parts of the country.

TEEVE is a distributed multi-tier application that captures images using 3-D camera clusters and distributes them over Internet2 (the network reserved for research and corporate clients), compressing and decompressing the 3-D video streams, rendering them into immersive video, and displaying them on one or multiple large screens.

According to Klara Nahrstedt, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, “TEEVE is a great technology because it allows for more cost-effective cyberspace communication of people in their full body size. This system is especially suited for learning new activities, training, and meeting in cyberspace if a physical activity is to be performed.”

More information on the technology utilized and access to the video produced can be found on the MONET Groups Tele-Immersion blog.
