    Default Using iPad as an extended monitor on windows 7

    Could be a useful alternative to a touchscreen for cue selection with Livepro

    Not sure if this is similar,but using my HTC touchscreen (G1) and wi-fi I can control my pc as if the phone were a touchscreen monitor. However the phones display doesn't show my desktop,so you would need an actual monitor to see what you are controlling.


    Yes,there's an app. for that.

    Thumbs up

    I have been playing with VNC on the iPad and it works much quicker and smoother than on an iPod. I have not noticed any lag at all; only problem is if you need to use the mouse for something...

    Bugger, I went looking for that detail before I posted it and the only reference that I presumed meant the touch worked was this:

    Key Features:
    • Creates an interactive, secondary wireless display for your PC with the iPad



    One would assume interactive would mean the touch works

    Wyse for iphone/ipad have been the best one this far from the solutions i tried controlling the lasersoftware from remote... otherwise a touchscreenmonitor is cheaper than buying an ipad if it is the touch function you need

    Sounds like a VERY expensive alternative? Why not just use a touchscreen monitor??

    well off course, but if you happen to have an ipad (I don't) then it's quite good

    A capacitive touchscreen monitor, even small, is as expensive as an iPad, I guess... And there's not much on the market.

    There's a new generation of inexpensive large multi touch screen monitors (Dell, etc) which works with cameras on the side of the screen but I don't know how well they are performing.
