Air Display for Mac
We get it. The Mac client for Air Display had suffered from inattention and became too slow to be really usable. The iOS Air Display client was much much faster despite running on a slower processor with a smaller screen. So we did what engineers do: we relentlessly worked long hours and we beat it into submission. It’s finally done, just in time for for… more working at home.
The new Air Display for Mac is 800% faster and supports Retina resolutions. So if you want to use your home Mac screen to extend your work Mac’s screen, we’ve got you covered.
And because Air Display can connect to four clients simultaneously, you can have a Mac, an iPad, an Android tablet, and a Windows PC all connected to your Mac. Or four Macs. Or one Mac, two PCs, and … well you get the idea.
Air Display Host on Catalina
Air Display users: please download the latest Air Display host.
macOS 10.15 (Catalina) posed some challenges for the Air Display host. Installation required a workaround involving the Terminal app and multiple restarts. We have fixed that, and now the installer works without a hitch.
Note: There are still some special considerations for installing virtual monitors on Catalina. After installing, macOS will ask whether you want to grant permissions to Air Display. Please say yes. Doing so allows Air Display’s video driver to load, and allows the host software to get pixels from its video driver so it can stream video to the client app.
