Duet Display for Mac/PC gets revised network protocol for big performance improvements

Duet Display, the software solution to extend the screen of your Mac or PC with an iPad, iPhone, Android device or even another Mac/PC is releasing its latest versions. Notably, the Mac update brings “significant wireless performance improvements” and more.

Duet Display continues to improve its experience of using iPad, iPhone and more with Mac and PC. This comes as Apple officially tests its Universal Control feature in the latest macOS 12.3 beta.

CEO and co-founder Rahul Dewan shared that part of Duet’s performance improvements come from redesigning its “network protocol from the ground up” which offers extremely low latency with local wireless setup or even access from a distance.

It also allowed Duet to “optimize for a wider variety of computers” and “take advantage of hardware acceleration like never before”.

  1. Significant wireless performance improvements for macOS 10.15 and later
  2. Redesigned Android protocol to improve performance and higher resolutions where possible
  3. Improved real-time management of the macOS environment to improve performance
  4. Improved support when running on the latest Macs
  5. Stability improvements and several crash fixes

Duet Display is available as a one-time purchase for $14.99, Duet Air to unlock advanced features can be tested free for one week, then runs at $24.99/year. And one of the cool features of Duet is that no hardware is required to run it.

Duet also now comes preinstalled on HP Envy and Specter computers, so whether you have one for work or otherwise, it’s easier than ever to use an iPad as an external display.
