We value the two elements of "Reality" and "Aura" in order to realize natural communication as if we are in the same space through "MADO (window)". For "Reality", we pursued the best in Sony’s of video and audio capabilities. And for "Aura", we have knowledge of cognitive psychology about how humans perceive people and spaces. For example, instead of handling only "central vision" information such as the other person's face, remarks, and materials as in existing video conferencing, "MADO" reflects in a life-sized person or "peripheral vision" on a large vertical screen. And the both directional high-quality sound technology creates the comfortable conversing in real time, as if they are sitting right in front of each other.
