Many mobile devices have an installed "Out" port. This allows you to send the audio and video information of the equipment (such as a portable media player or cell phone) into a computer system. The connection takes one single cable and only a few minutes to perform. However, if there is no available "Out" port installed, you are unable to connect the mobile device to a television system.
