Title: INPUT SIGNAL EMULATION
Abstract:
Input signals, received by a primary computer, are emulated to a guest computer. For example, an input redirection component is connected between the primary computer and the guest computer. The primary computer may be communicatively connected to an input device (e.g., a touch display, a keyboard, etc.). The guest computer may not, however, be communicatively connected to the input device, and thus may be unaware of input signals from the input device. Accordingly, the input redirection component may receive, from the primary computer, a message regarding an input signal from the input device. The input redirection component may emulate the input device (e.g., connect to the guest computer as though the input redirection component is the input device), and may provide an emulated input signal, emulating the input signal, to the guest computer (e.g., the input signal, received by the primary computer, may be used to control the guest computer).
