|National Tele-Immersion Initiative|
Tele-Immersion (National Tele-immersion Initiative - NTII) will enable users at geographically distributed sites to collaborate in real time in a shared, simulated environment as if they were in the same physical room. This new paradigm for human-computer interaction is the ultimate synthesis of networking and media technologies and, as such, it is the greatest technical challenge for Internet2.
To ensure that these new environments become a reality, Advanced Network & Services has acted as a catalyst in bringing together recognized experts in virtual reality and networking, led by VR pioneer Jaron Lanier. The results of our joint research effort will be an objective voice and a factual basis for the creation of the networks of the future.
