General Installation

Connecting the Video Source and Outputs
A video source provides the Presenter HUB a video image. The Presenter HUB incorporates any annotations, then outputs the combined annotations and video image to a display. Examples of video sources include DVD players, computers, cameras, and television sets. Outputs can be to projectors, monitors or other display devices. In the Presenter HUB, the source can be from HDMI or USB.
HDMI Connectors
To connect HDMI video:
1. HDMI Input into Presenter HUB: Using HDMI video cable, connect the Presenter HUB’s HDMI In on the back panel to HDMI out on a HDMI video source.
2. HDMI Output from Presenter HUB: Using HDMI video cable, connect the Presenter HUB’s HDMI Out to HDMI In on a HDMI video source.
USB Connectors
Connect the device to one of the USB ports on the back of the Presenter HUB. The system supports up to 5 USB 3.0 devices, and can support more with a hub.
Connecting Physical Controllers
IMPORTANT: Be sure to power down the Presenter HUB before connecting or disconnecting any controllers. The Presenter HUB will automatically detect installed controllers once powered on.
