A remote manipulation task was presented to 80 Introduction to Psychology students from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The participants viewed the task via two displays showing two camera views. For the camera views, one camera was always in a top-down position, while the other camera changed positions from normal, right-side, reverse, and left-side positions. For the displays, the camera views were shown in either Configuration 1, with the top-down view on the left display and the other camera view on the right display, or Configuration 2, with the top-down view on the right display and the other camera views on the left display. Performance speed was recorded for the remote manipulation task to find the best combination of camera view and display configuration. The results indicated that the normal camera view was worse than the other camera views, but there was no significant difference between the right, reverse, or left camera views. A significant difference was also found between the two display configurations, but that difference was strongly influenced by the normal camera view conditions. An interaction was found between camera placement and display configuration, but it was also strongly influenced by the normal camera view conditions.
