  • Patent number: 9298412
    Abstract: The conferencing system is composed of computers, a moderator's computer, and a projector connected on a network. The moderator's computer receives image data from the computers, and generates synthesized image data therefrom, which is transmitted to the projector for display of the synthesized image. The moderator's computer has the capability to switch the image being projected by the projector from the synthesized image to an image handled by one of the computers or by the moderator's computer. With such an arrangement, utilizing existing hardware resources it will be possible to display in a single split-screen display the images handled by the terminals connected on the network. Additionally, it will be possible to switch smoothly between on-screen displays, and to reduce the burden on the on-screen display operator in a networked conferencing system.
