With the advent of Gbps-range research and engineering networks, remote multi-party collaboration systems are getting more interest. However, most existing collaboration systems are limited in providing realistic and interactive quality of user experience. This paper introduces the design of a multiparty meeting system for advanced interactive collaboration. By extending the access grid (AG) multi-party collaboration system, an interactive meeting space is envisioned to enhance the quality of user experience. Several design considerations are reviewed from the integrated view of media, networking, display, and interaction service components. Thus, a prototype framework and realization will be discussed by combining user-friendly pointing/tracking interactions, high-resolution tiled displays, hybrid multicast-based networking, and high-quality HD media services.
