IMS - Instant Messaging Service? Provides real time one-to-one communications between you and another person.

Netmeeting - provides video, audio, white boards, etc

The Conferencing server provides the ability of a Conference communication between one-to-several users, and provides the ability for the items you mentioned (white boards, video, audio, text, document sharing,etc). It also provides a means for the administrator to control the amount of bandwidth consumed, can control who can join a specific conference, ability to log transactions, and other features.
