InstaShow also offered numerous practical advantages during presentations. By allowing participants to launch their presentations in quick succession, it opened up the flow of ideas within the meeting rooms and made discussions more effective. No longer did participants have to wait impatiently for the first presenter to disconnect his or her laptop and take it away, and then wait again as the second presenter searched for the proper cable, hooked up his or her laptop, and fiddled with display setting before finally starting a new presentation. With InstaShow, subsequent presenters could plug in the dongle while waiting to present. Then, when their turn came, they could hit a single button and start sharing.
