Features and design[edit]

VSee sends and receives high quality video over consumer-grade networks using software.[3]VSee uses a managed peer-to-peer architecture similar to Skype. However, a server is used for address lookup and for administrative purposes. Data being sent and received among clients does not pass through the server. This data is encrypted using FIPS 140-2.[15] VSee also uses a proprietary network-sensing algorithm that adapts to network conditions, allowing it to deliver video over very low-bandwidths and with minimal impact to a network.[3]VSee supports the following features:

  • group video chat up to 15–20 people
  • screen-sharing with annotation
  • group and private chat (during video chat)[16]
