This paper presents the evaluation of a mixed reality com- munication system for the home domain, called roomXT. The system uses a wall-sized display that is seamlessly inte- grated into a living lab, to create a 'life-like' video com- munication experience. In order to demonstrate the po- tential of this approach, we conducted a living lab study comparing the developed prototype with a desktop-based system. A special video communication application, which enables spatially separated users to have a joint dinner ex- perience, served as a common basis for the different test conditions. Results of the study show that the overall con- cept of roomXT was well received by users of a wide age range and that the developed prototype system seems to be preferred to commercially available video communication so- lutions with respect to the tested quality dimensions.
