‘Air Display’ Now Supports OS X Lion HiDPI Mode On New iPad’s Retina Display

by on April 4th, 2012

‘Air Display’ app for iPad has been updated to support the new iPad’s ultra-high resolution display bringing the ability to enable HiDPI mode in OS X lion which renders graphics at double their previous size. This means users can now utilize every single pixel available on the new iPad’s 2048 x 1536 panel. As noted by The Verge, “the end result is superb: just like going from the iPad 2 to the new iPad, the vastly improved pixel density results in richly detailed images“.

Here is what’s new in Air Display version 1.6:

HiDPI
• If you have Mac OS X Lion and a Retina iOS device, now you can turn on “HiDPI mode.” HiDPI is a built-in Mac OS X feature that makes UI elements render at double resolution. It’s absolutely stunning on a Retina display. By default, Mac OS X disables HiDPI because until now, there has been no Mac display with high enough resolution. Air Display on a new iPad, with its 2048×1536 264-dpi Retina display, finally brings HiDPI to life.

RETINA DISPLAY (Mac OS X 10.6+ only)
• Devices with Retina displays now can optionally render at high resolution. You can still choose to view at non-Retina resolutions.
• Air Display now uses the full screen resolution when scaling (while doing video out or mirroring a larger device).

BUG FIXES
• No longer disabling drivers on MacBook Pro models with NVIDIA 9400M/9600M video adapter. Please see avatron.com/lion for more information.
• Fixed bugs related to modifier keys on the virtual and Bluetooth keyboards, when connected to a Mac. Requires Mac Air Display Connect update.
• Fixed the “Enable Keyboard” option (in the Air Display section in the Settings app).
• Improved frame rate and quality.
• Fixed video output bugs.

To get starting using Air Display, you’ll need to download the $9.99 app for your iOS device and then install the companion software from Avatron’s website on either your Windows PC or Mac.
