Multiple Display Synchronization

With the synchronization of multiple displays, the same or related information is transmitted to multiple screens simultaneously. The video screen information is supplied by the computing system(s), which may be synchronized via data phone. Audio communication between users is accomplished via ordinary telephone.

Each user may have selective control over the common display through control of device tables. Each device table contains a list of display devices to receive a given transmission. A user's shared transmission thus accesses a shared device table and causes an output to each device in the table.

The system control for access may be passable, selectively or round robin, or may be random by first interrupt or first input. The flow chart illustrates the passable selective control.
