    Virtual Reality leads Digital Product Development technology to a more effective and convenient way by presenting the product model in an immersive real 3D environment. Distributed VR even enables partners to discuss the design of the product independent of their locations. This paper introduces our work with a Digital Product Development System with Virtually Cooperating Teams Using High Bandwidth Networks — ProViT, which aims at building up immersive telepresence systems for design review across high-bandwidth networks. Video and audio streaming are integrated in the virtual environment to support immersive teleconference aspects of the distributed design review sessions. A network management system has been developed for the supervision, maintenance and processing of distributed setups, and network security.
