It is a full blown video/audio conferencing tool.

T.120 is not for audio/videoconferencing, it is for data-conferencing.
GnomeMeeting is videoconferencing / VoIP oriented and thus doesn't
implement the data part of the collaborative tools. Moreover, the
whiteboard functionality is patented and Microsoft just lost a 56
millions dollars lawsuit against the company that had patented the
whiteboard feature for having included it in Netmeeting.

Notice that the software is Open Source and that you are free to
implement everything you like and contribute it in the form of patches.
