On April 26, 1993 a ground breaking technology was released to the world known as CuSeeMe.
This incredible new service allowed virtually for the first time, individuals to see
each other over the internet using cheap internet cameras which are now known as
Although video conferencing is now common place, in 1993 CuSeeMe was truly something
new and transformed the internet and made all who used it realize the Jetson's life
style was at hand.
CuSeeMe, not only provided face to face video conferencing, it went a step further and
allowed for multiple people to connect together, for multi-party video calls..
A feature which has only recently become popularized with Skype's new multi-party
video feature - of course the Skype version costs money - but CuSeeMe, like all cool
things back then, was simply free.
CuSeeMe, eventually grew, and was even adopted by NASA to stream videos about their
works and progress.. Millions of people around the world started using CuSeeMe, for
many different purposes, however , due to the limited bandwidth of the time, it was
more a hobbyist application, rather than a useful business tool.
In 2013, CuSeeMe.Tv will be launched, as an ultra high quality 16 person video conferencing
service, combined with live video streaming of personal videos, camera, mobiles,
television or any other audio video signal.
CuSeeMe.Tv will support the new features such as eye tracking, visual login, echo
canceled audio, Retina technology from Apple, 3D web cam support, hand gestures,
and a new high speed video protocol giving you the highest possible video quality
and resolution ever seen on a video conference site.
Other tools will include online whiteboards, file sharing, file storage, private rooms,
profile pages , video commenting, video mail, video chat roulette ( without the nudity ),
and few other things which I am still working on..
CuSeeMe.tv bas been designed and will be released, in a portable and open manner, with
a quality that will be beyond your greatest expectations, and it is my hope, that this
product will make all existing and all future conference and video/audio communications
services seem like it's 1993 again..
