Distance communication is becoming an important part of our lives because of the current advancement in computer mediated communication (CMC). Despite the current advancement in CMC especially video teleconferencing; it is still far from face-to-face (FtF) interaction. This study will focus on the advancements in video teleconferencing; their trends and challenges. Furthermore, this work will present an overview of previously developed hardware and software techniques to improve the video teleconferencing experience. After discussing the background development of video teleconferencing, we will propose an intuitive solution to improve the video teleconferencing experience. To support the proposed solution, the Embodied Interaction based distance communication framework is developed. The effectiveness of this framework is validated by the user studies. To summarize this work has considered the following questions: What are the factors which make video teleconferencing different from face to face interaction?; What researchers have done so far to improve video teleconferencing?; How to further improve the teleconferencing experience?; How to add more non-verbal modalities to enhance the video teleconferencing experience? At the end we have also provided the future directions for embodied interaction based video teleconferencing.
