Collab-Hub is a networking tool for sharing data across the internet for multimedia collaboration. Utilizing the Max graphical coding environment and its integrated Node.js functionality, Collab-Hub allows for multiple users to send data easily and remotely so they can collaborate with that data in real-time.

In this talk, we discuss the design of the Collab-Hub framework and provide examples of using it to create scalable and reconfigurable interaction layouts between Max patches and web-based instruments/interfaces. An analysis of pertinent historical precedents highlights the advantages Collab-Hub provides to artists who have little to no web development experience or to those who may be new to creating telematic and remote performance environments. A showcase of works created with Collab-Hub demonstrates the wide variety of artistic endeavors made possible through the framework.
