Duet Display is a very useful mobile phone tool that can allow Windows users to transform their iPhone or iPad devices into a fully-functional second screen. By using this software, you can easily extend your current workspace no matter if you are a desktop or laptop user, enhancing your ability to multitask and to optimize your workflow with more easily available data on screens around you. Additionally, this second screen can still retain touchscreen functionality, enabling you to be even more productive than with a regular non-touchscreen standalone PC monitor.
With the app, you can delay or even cancel a purchase of standalone secondary monitors, and simply use the iDevices that you already own to increase your productivity and enable your home PC or a laptop to extend their desktop surface beyond its regular main screen.
It is a sleek piece of software that enables you to transform your iPhone or iPad into a second screen for your computer.
How to install Duet Display?
It comes in a fairly large installation package that will require up to several minutes to install depending on the configuration of your home PC or laptop. After successfully finishing the easy-to-follow installation procedure, you will be welcomed with a very simple app interface that consists of a single control screen and just a few on-screen configuration options. But to access those configurations you first need to properly set-up your iPhone or iPad. First, download and start Duet Display download mobile app, and connect the device with PC using a USB cable. Wireless communication is not supported.
The app can be used to configure three aspects of the connection quality – Framerate (60fps is recommended for most fluid use, but that setting can tax computer resources and faster drain your laptop battery), Performance (which will impact the image quality, three presets are available -High Power, Energy Efficient and Pixel Perfect), and finally Resolution (with support for Retina resolutions of latest iPads and iPhones).
To best take advantage of your tool, make sure that your iPad or iPhone device can support higher resolutions and your PC can handle rendering capacity needed to send a higher quality image to the external display. To save on resources, you can always reduce quality settings and find the most optimal image quality presets that fit your needs. Be aware that if your PC or Laptop gets burdened with additional processing during the use of this software (such as converting video files in another format), image quality and connection stability of external display image may suffer.
The utility comes with a sleek and modern interface that enables you to refresh the frame rate, type of performance and the resolution of the device. If you are on the road, then you can opt for the 60 FPS framerate and energy efficiency performance so you can use the laptop’s resources for longer.
Even though you can choose the highest settings, you should make sure that the iDevice can actually support the settings. This is why it is likely that you can experience a noticeable lag on the iPad sometimes.
