Mixed Reality (MR) enables users to explore scenarios not realizable in the physical world. This allows users to communicate with the help of digital content. We investigate how different configurations of participants and content affect communication in a shared immersive environment. We designed and implemented side-by-side, mirrored face-to-face and eyes-free configurations in our multi-user MR environment and conducted a preliminary user study for our mirrored face-to-face configuration, evaluating with respect to one-to-one interaction, smooth focus shifts and eye contact within a 3D presentation using the interactive Chalktalk system. We provide experimental results and interview responses.
