We study relative Drinfeld commutants of a fusion category in another fusion category in terms of half-braidings. We identify half-braidings with minimal central projections of the relative tube algebra and certain sectors related to the Longo-Rehren subfactors. We apply this general machinery to various fusion categories arising from alpha-induction applied to a modular tensor category and compute the relative Drinfeld commutants explicitly.
