If you often times use your tablet as a second-screen, or are looking for an easy way to do so; Air Display has been updated to Air Display 2. According to Avatron Software the company has “streamlined the interface, introduced multiple-display connectivity, and optimized the video drivers to take advantage of Apple’s latest hardware, the iPhone 5s and new iPads.”
“Our primary goals for this new version were to make Air Display even easier to set up and more satisfying to use, and to make it absolutely scream on Apple’s new 64-bit iPads,” says Dave Howell, Avatron’s CEO. “We wanted to make the iPad feel just as responsive as an ordinary computer monitor, but without the wires.”
The company also claims that the software from the Air Display 2 host-client communication, “is about 3 times faster than the best of class experience in the previous version. Avatron’s proprietary video compression protocols now offer crisper performance, tuned to run smoothly on the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and the new iPad mini with Retina display.”
“When we first tried Air Display 2 on the iPhone 5s,” says Howell, “we were stunned by the graphic fluidity, both in playing movies and in performing everyday computer tasks. The A7 chip changes everything.”
Air Display 2 can connect the computer desktop to up to four displays simultaneously with video performance unmatched in its category. With just a click, the user wirelessly extends or mirrors their screen to up to 4 iOS, Android, Mac, or Windows clients at once.
