CU-SeeMe

(communications)
/see`-yoo-see'-mee/ ("CU" from Cornell University) A shareware personal computer-based videoconferencing program for use over the Internet, developed at Cornell University, starting in 1992.

CU-SeeMe allows for direct audiovisual connections between clients, or, like irc, it can support multi-user converencing via servers (here called "reflectors") to distribute the video and audio signals between multiple clients.

CU-SeeMe was the first videoconferencing tool available at a reasonable price (in this case, free) to users of personal computers.

Click to Meet

Popular, enterprise-class videoconferencing software from RADVISION Ltd., Fair Lawn, NJ (www.radvision.com) that merges video, data collaboration and instant messaging over the Internet. Click to Meet provides a client/server architecture with PCs as the video clients and Click to Meet servers as the videoconference control. It can interface with existing videoconferencing systems and can integrate with browsers and desktop applications in a variety of ways.

Originally "See You-See Me"
Originally CUseeMe from White Pine Software Inc., Nashua, NH, White Pine merged with First Virtual Communications (FVC) in 2001. First Virtual enhanced the core technology in CUseeMe and added a new user interface, turning it into Click to Meet. FVC was acquired by voice and video over IP leader RADVISION in 2005.
