StreamSpace: A Framework for Window Streaming in Collaborative Mixed Reality Environments

Published March 16, 2024 in IEEE VR '24: 2024 IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces Abstracts and Workshops (VRW) by Daniele Giunchi, Riccardo Bovo, Nels Numan, Anthony Steed


We introduce StreamSpace as a framework for exploring screen-based collaborative mixed-reality (MR) experiences, focusing on the streaming, integration, and layout of screen content in MR environments. Utilizing Unity and Ubiq, this framework allows users to engage with, reposition, and resize uniquely identified screens within a user-centric virtual space. Building on Ubiq’s WebRTC capabilities, our framework enables real-time streaming and transformations through peer-to-peer communication. Key features of StreamSpace include distributed streaming, automated screen layout, and flexible privacy settings for virtual screens. By introducing StreamSpace, we aim to provide a foundational basis for research on screen-based collaborative MR applications.
