Videoconferencing Over Cable Modems in 1994/1995
CUseeME and Apple QuickTime Conferencing 1.0 beta worked perfectly over the Zenith and Lancity proprietary cable modems when the RF path was sufficiently clean. These modems were able to interoperate on the same RF fiber nodes using Frequency Division Multiplexing, and an Ethernet switch to join the otherwise incompatible networks.
Late in the beta, 160x120 pixel video was increased to 320x240, and the audio quality greatly improved on the Apple PowerMacintosh 7100 AV.
