The Argus project uses an array of computers and cameras as a means of investigating telepresence and real-time three-dimensional imaging. In this paper we will briefly discuss telepresence from an information flow and visualization perspective. The paper also includes a detailed description of the Argus hardware and a software layer developed to manage the imaging and computational resources. MPEG-2 and feature extraction will be described as parallel compression systems for the Argus camera array.
