1. A cable management apparatus for use in mounting one of a plurality of electronic devices to a display, comprising:

  • a source module for providing at least a single-source power signal;

    a mounting member adapted to receive an electronic device, wherein the mounting member is lifted and returned to a resting position on the display, and further, the mounting member is electrically connected to the source module and receives the power signal from the source module delivered to the mounting member at a certain voltage, when the mounting member is in the resting position, for passing power through the mounting member to the electronic device;

    a tether assembly adapted to connect to the mounting member, wherein the tether assembly comprises a portion that is adapted to transmit an optical signal;

    an adaptor cable assembly selected from a plurality of adaptor cable assemblies associated with the plurality of electronic devices, wherein the adaptor cable assembly includes a cable that electrically couples the electronic device to the mounting member by electrically adapting said certain voltage delivered to the mounting member, via the single-source power signal, to an appropriate voltage required to power the electronic device;

    a battery storage means carried by said mounting member, the battery storage means being charged by the single-source power signal when the mounting member is in the resting position; and

    a security sensor arrangement carried by the mounting member, the security sensor arrangement operating from power supplied via the same single-source power signal at least when the mounting member is in the resting position, and further, the security sensor arrangement being operated by the battery storage means when the mounting member is lifted from the resting position.
