@chrismessina Yeah I'd really like to see some info on how this is better than Duet Display which doesn't require a separate dongle

@chrismessina That’s a great question Here are some ways in which Luna Display compares to Duet: - We can drive all iPads at the full native Retina resolutions (Duet is limited to 1080p, and doesn’t necessarily fit the size of the iPad) - The Mac sees Luna as a real display, so we are robust and reliable (Unlike Duet which requires software extensions that break very frequently) - As a result of being a real display, we get complete GPU acceleration across all apps - We have an ultra crisp picture on the display and are perceptually lossless - Luna is much lower latency, 16 to 32ms on Wifi, (Duet uses AirPlay which is typically 32 to 64ms) - Luna was built for Wifi from the beginning, we have a proprietary display protocol called Liquid that was built for low latency and high resolution on Wifi networks For a comparison from a third party, check out this video done by iMore: https://youtu.be/wRpC2qII-gE?t=76

@chrismessina @mronge What if I already am driving another display? Dpes that work? And related, can you drive more than one Luna from a Mac?

@chrismessina @stoweboyd You can use Luna with other displays as well. In fact I'm driving a 5K LG and a 12.9" iPad Pro with Luna from my 2016 MacBook Pro right now. And sadly, we only support one Luna at a time.

@chrismessina @stoweboyd @mronge As a long-time user of Duet that switched to a USB powered HDMI screen because the lag was too bad, I'm really keen to try this out.
