Why designers like big monitor&multi-monitor
Even if you are not a designer you may have noticed that most designer’s monitor are super big, some of them even use more than one monitor to do their designs. That’s not for the sake of being cool but for practical reasons. Big monitor and multi-monitor not only help designers to be more efficient but also make multi-tasking much easier for them.
The University of Utah did a research, the result shows that designers with larger screens completed tasks 52 percent faster than those with smaller screens and they could save 2.5 hours a day. If you have paid a little attention, you may find there are at least 3 programs (Ps,Ai, Pr,Ae,etc) and 10 windows (Pixabay, Pexels,Dribble,Behance,Pinterest,etc) open on a designer’s computer at any moment, design is truly a multi-window job. However, a giant monitor or multi-monitor allows for seamless multitasking through dozens of windows.
But when a designer needs to go for a business travel or go out&shooting, he couldn’t take a 27-inch monitor with him, then, a multi-monitor consist of a laptop and an ipad is needed. So here’s the next question is how to set up a multi-monitor?
Duet Display:Do more with the multi-monitor
When it comes to APP for using iPad as an external display, Duet Display is definitely the winner. It was developed by former Apple engineers. You could never imagine how easy the setup could be, whenever you want to use the Duet Display, you just need to plug and play. Duet Display use the Lightning/USB connection instead of Wi-Fi only, which allows it operates with basically zero lag.
“After testing all the options I could find, Duet Display is the best choice. It’s simple to set up, doesn’t have a lot of fiddly options to tinker with, and it works consistently over the rock solid Lightning cable connection.” Said Bradley Chambers, a professional APP reviewer.
Duet Display is available in the App Store for $19.99, and for graphic designers, music producers and video editors, it would be a worthwhile investment.
Let’s enjoy the video of Duet, to see how did these outstanding designers work with Duet Display.
