reflector:(re-flek-tor')a. a central bouncing point for live video/audio
transmissions to be broadcasted to/from, b. a shiny surface that reflects
(see "reflect")

j/k

its a peice of software that takes cu-seeme client streams and sends it to
everyone connected, and of course it must be run on some sort of
windows/unix machine... to use the reflector you just load up a client and
connect to it, client being cuseeme or something of that nature. if you
want to run the reflector itself, you must be fairly knowledgeable with
the clients already and have the desire to learn command line functions
and semi-cryptic setup lines.. its not rocket science but it takes a
little work to get it working just the way you want it :)

hope this helps some.
