AirPlay support in Displays 1.2.1

We’ve just updated Displays to version 1.2.1, available on the Mac App Store. Displays is our new app for OS X to manage all monitors attached to your Mac, with features like easy resolution change, Picture in Picture, Night mode or Virtual laser pointer.

In this new version, we’ve added full support for AirPlay monitors. You can use all Displays features with your AirPlay monitor, especially our Picture in Picture mode which lets you watching what’s going on another monitor. Note that your AirPlay monitor could be identified as “Unknown” in our app (we’re still working on a better way to identify AirPlay monitors).

Apart from bugs fixes and general performance improvements, we’ve also added a dark theme for our app. When OS X is switched to Dark mode, our app Displays will automatically use its dark theme, instead of the normal appearance.

New update 1.2 for Displays

We’ve just released a major update for Displays, our new app to manage monitors. This version 1.2 comes with a lot of new features and fixes bugs reported by users. And now, Displays speaks Italian too.

Displays : set new resolution for Mac OS X, virtual laser pointer, picture in pictureHide your desktop icons
When doing presentations or demos, you don’t really want to show the mess on your desktop to your audience, isn’t it? Now Displays can quickly hide all icons sitting on your desktop, on all screens. Use a custom keyboard shortcut or use the appropriate icon in Displays toolbar.

Take screenshots
No need to open the Grab tool of OS X! You can now take screenshot of the desired screen. There are two settings available in Preferences: take screenshot after a countdown of 3 seconds, and capture mouse pointer.

Reduce blue light
Night mode does have a new setting to reduce blue light emitted by your monitor, which is known as a potent suppressor of melatonin.

Improved Picture in Picture
Picture in Picture (PiP) is a cool feature to show a Mac OS X screen in another screen. PiP windows can now be freely resized, without any quality loss. We’ve also added two new user settings to define window opacity and stream quality (up to 60 fps).

Other new features
A Test Card can be displayed on any screen to help you in monitor calibration.
You can show resolution aspect ratio in main list.

Full changelog is available here.

Displays can be purchased on the Mac App Store for 5.99$.

Displays is our new app to manage your monitors

Today, we’re very pleased to announce the release of our new app “Displays” for Mac OSX. Displays is a toolbox to manage your monitors: you can easily set any resolution for your main or secondary monitor, even those usually hidden in OSX. Every resolution can be customized with your own label. Displays supports many customizable keyboard shortcuts, notifications, screen rotation and even shows information about all your monitors (serial number, graphic card in use…).

But what makes Displays different is other very useful features:
– Enable night mode to rest your eyes (switch to OSX Dark mode, lower screen brightness…)
– Use a virtual mouse pointer highlighter for your presentations
– Show another display with ‘Picture-in-Picture’ mode

To celebrate the launch of Displays, you can buy it on the Mac App Store at a special discount price of 2.99$.
