In this research, we explore how different types of augmented gesture communication cues can be used under different view sharing techniques in a remote collaboration system. In a pilot study, we compared four conditions: (1) Pointers on Still Image, (2) Pointers on Live Video, (3) Annotation on Still Image, and (4) Annotation on Live Video. Through this study, we found three results. First, users collaborate more efficiently using annotation cues than pointer cues for communicating object position and orientation information. Second, live video becomes more important when quick feedback is needed. Third, the type of gesture cue has more influence on performance and user preference than the type of view sharing method.
