Is it?  If it is not covered by "video telephony" then what else would you
suggest "video telephony" is ?

Whether video telephony is such an important application, however, remains
to be seen. The evidence from wireline and wireless trials so far suggests
that once the wow-factor has worn off it is likely to fade into a far
lesser important service, that most people are unwilling to pay for in most
situations.
