Video-based interaction is one of the most intuitive kinds of Human-Computer-Interaction with Mixed-Reality applications. Users are not wired to a computer, as it is necessary e.g. with electromagnetic sensors like data gloves, and maintain mostly unrestricted freedom of interaction. Therefore video-based interaction should be considered as the preferred kind of interaction especially for technically unversed users. In the field of arts and cultural heritage applications, it is important to address diverse kinds of users and therefore the creation of applications that need user specific training phases should be avoided. In this paper we present a combination of different video-based interaction methods using both marker based and marker less tracking techniques to provide a generic framework for Human-Computer-Interaction with Mixed Reality applications for the arts and cultural heritage domain. The approach includes an infrared light based tracking system capable of simultaneously recognizing several rigid bodies consisting of retro reflective markers, surveillance of predefined regions for selection purposes and the recognition of as well a static pointing gesture as a dynamic hand gesture.
