Debut of a Live 3D Teleconferencing system at ASC2008 on Dec. 1, 2008 by the Graphics Laboratory from the University of Southern California's Institute for Creative Technologies. The participant is scanned in real time in 3D using structured light and the geometry and texture is transmitted in real time to a spinning mirror with high speed video projection, resulting in a hologram-like 3D image of the person speaking. For more information see:
Rendering for an Interactive 360º Light Field Display
The system works by projecting high-speed video onto a rapidly spinning mirror. As the mirror turns, it reflects a different and accurate image to each potential viewer.
The display is:

• autostereoscopic - requires no special viewing glasses
• omnidirectional - generates simultaneous views accomodating large numbers of viewers
• interactive - can update content at 200Hz
