How to use Ubi Hub to wirelessly connect to any touch screen

Ubi Support -

Ubi Hub app is a great new feature that we added in both Ubi sensor app and Ubi Stand alone app suite. It essentially turns your PC to an Apple TV or Chromecast or Miracast with interactivity. With just one click, you can wirelessly project individual team member’s laptops to any touch screen and interact with the content directly on the touch screen. You can then together create and share.

Here is how you set it up.

Installing Software

On your machine that is connected to the touch screen (lets call it Ubi Hub server), please download and install the latest version of Ubi Apps for Productivity or Ubi Apps for Education. ed. 

On the lap top ( let us call it Ubi Hub client ) that you want to connect to this server, you can download the free UbiHubClient application. 
 
These are stand alone apps, that do not require Ubi sensor. If you do not have a license for Ubi App, please get one from here
 
Connecting to Network

Once you have done this make sure that both PC and server are connected to the same wifi / network. For Ubi Hub to work, there is no need to have internet connection. 

Start Ubi Hub Server
 
Once Ubi app is running on the server, click on your Ubi menu icon.You will see a Ubi Hub icon there. Click on it.
 
 
In the window that pops up, choose the option, Use as "Ubi Hub". You can remember this choice for future. 
 
 
 
You will now be taken to a window, where you will see the IP address of this Ubi Hub  server.
 
Your Ubi Hub server is now ready. You just need to wait for the client to connect now. 
 
 
Start Ubi Hub Client
 
Launch Ubi Hub Client from the client laptop. Enter the address of your Ubi Hub Server and your Windows Password as shown below. Click Connect.
 
You will now see the content of your client laptop on the server. Please note that you will be locked out of the client PC now for security reason. You will be able to access the client PC only via Ubi Hub server. You can unlock the client PC anytime, if needed, but that will disconnect the client from Ubi Hub server.
 
 
 
 
You can control the client PC just like you are connected directly to it. You can also copy-paste content including files between the two machines. Anytime you want to close the connection, you can click on the disconnect button.
