In this work we present an interactive video conferencing system specifically designed for enhancing the experience of video teleconferencing for a pilot user. We have used an Embodied Telepresence System (ETS) which was previously designed to enhance the experience of video teleconferencing for the collaborators. In this work we have deployed an ETS in a novel scenario to improve the experience of pilot user during distance communication. The ETS is used to adjust the view of the pilot user at the distance location (e.g. distance located conference/meeting). The velocity profile control for the ETS is developed which is implicitly controlled by the head of the pilot user. The experiment was conducted to test whether the view adjustment capability of an ETS increases the collaboration experience of video conferencing for the pilot user or not. The user study was conducted in which participants (pilot users) performed interaction using ETS and with traditional computer based video conferencing tool. Overall, the user study suggests the effectiveness of our approach and hence results in enhancing the experience of video conferencing for the pilot user.
