VLVC offers four kinds of videoconferencing modes, thus covering most of the users' needs.Chatroom mode : All users can hear and see each others, everybody can speak freely.
Conference mode : This mode has one single user, the server, who transmits his sound and video streams to all other users. In other words, he is the only one who can be heard and seen.
Amphitheatre mode : It is an advanced version of the Conference mode that allows the administrator (the server) to grant and revoke the right of speech to one single user at a time.
Meeting mode : It is similar to the Amphitheatre mode, but it can grant and revoke the rights of speech to multiple users at a time.
