This paper presents a new interactive teleconferencing system. It adds a 'virtual' camera to the scene which can move freely in between multiple real cameras. The viewpoint can automatically be selected using basic cinematographic rules, based on the position and the actions of the instructor. This produces a clearer and more engaging view for the remote audience, without the need for a human editor.
