On the influence of involvement on the quality of multiparty conferencing

Janto Skowronek, Falk Schiffner, Alexander Raake


The present study is a first investigation on the potential influence of conversation and task involvement on quality ratings in the context of multiparty telemeetings. The results show that involvement has indeed a significant impact, and it can be larger than the effect of the tested technical degradations. This study confirms experience from the two-party context and gives an estimate of rating differences between listening and conversation tests.
