Click to Meet Architecture

Yesterday John Lachance, a Systems Engineer for First Virtual Communications called me back to talk about how their Click to Meet product works. I had contacted FVC about what H.263+ annexes are used in Click to Meet, and was not sure if the response I received from Steve Barth also applied to their web clients. John was able to answer this for me.

FVC uses a client/server architecture for their Click to Meet product family. How it works is that you install their server software on a single machine which is your network's H.323 point of access. All of your video conferencing data will go through this server. End-users point Internet Explorer (5.5+) at the conference and download an ActiveX Control which will talk to the Click to Meet server using a version of the Cu-SeeMe protocol.

So basically the answer is that the Click to Meet web clients will end up using the F and P.5 annexes used by the server.
