Abstract

1. Describe your invention, stating the problem solved (if appropriate), and indicating the advantages of using the invention. XMD technology (see prior art reference below) allows a portable to be turned into a display system which can be used during presentations instead of a projection system. The problem is that there is currently no easy way to connect multiple XMD systems. The XMD Video Cable Hub solves this problem. When used in a conference room setting, a distribution hub is required, to allow one presenter to present to more than one attendee. The XMD cable hub allows multiple XMD display systems to daisy-chain to each other. The hub also allows the presenter to change during the course of the session, changing the display direction dynamically. 2. How does the invention solve the problem or achieve an advantage,(a description of "the invention", including figures inline as appropriate)? Summary:
