The prefix "con" denotes "together". A one-way conference is a misnomer, like a one way meeting with your boss. For telecommunications, we use the term "telephone conference" to mean three or more. Communication between only two isn't special. Here are the terms we can use:
one-way = broadcast or videocast
two-way = video chat
three-way (or more) = video conference
