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.
Compare with multicast backbone.
