For several years, augmented and virtual reality technologies have attracted increasing interest in all areas. In the midst of this universe, the concept, already well known, of mixed reality has established itself as a distinct paradigm. However, and contrary to augmented and virtual realities, there is not a clear and one definition of what it is exactly and why it is different from the other concepts. In this article, we attempt to provide a new classification method to standardize the definition of virtual, augmented and mixed realities. First, a quick overview of existing taxonomies is made, then we present our classification which is based on three criteria we called 3iVClass (Immersion, Interaction, Information). Finally, in order to verify its reliability, we used this classification to propose a definition of mixed reality.
