Video Chat Bandwidth Consumption on Server?

When using the video chat feature, is the connection between endpoints initiated on the server, then handed off so it's direct endpoint-to-endpoint after the call is set up?  Or do the video streams continue to run through the server (as a hub) during the entire length of the video session?

Those 2 scenarios would generate SUBSTANTIALLY different bandwidth consumption profiles at the server.

We're drafting a proposal for a company whose 2,000+ users plan to make extensive use of video chat and collaboration/whiteboards, so the answer to this question will have a profound effect on how we quote this customer.
