HoloLens: Third-person Perspective

Yenjung Chen, Stamatis Risto, Felix von Haxthausen, Floris Ernst, Verónica García-Vázquez


Augmented reality (AR) glasses, such as HoloLens, are tools that can, for example, be used to provide additional infor- mation during surgery. The features Spectator View and Sharing a Scene can provide a third-person perspective to present the AR world to the general audience. Spectator View combines the view from an external camera attached to a second HoloLens and the virtual objects from the AR world. Sharing a Scene uses two HoloLens devices that share the same AR world, live streaming the point of view of one HoloLens. This study compared both approaches. Spectator View showed a larger field of view and less latency for displaying the virtual objects than Sharing a Scene. However, the real world and the virtual objects were not updated at the same time with Spectator View. Additionally, the position of the virtual objects was more accurate with Sharing a Scene. Users can decide which method to use according to their needs.
