Our January update breathes new life into native AirPlay casting, now with a best in class connection experience from your iPhone, iPad or Mac to your room display. In the fast-paced world of technology, we hold connection speed and performance to a very high standard.
This latest enhancement to our AirPlay casting transforms how you experience native casting. No more awkward pauses or technical hiccups - our AirPlay experience ensures that your content is ready to be shared the moment you need it.
Sub-second Connection Time
By fine tuning the AirPlay protocol, we now facilitate instant joining with a sub-second connection time, 10 times faster than previous implementations. Gone are the days of waiting for your device to connect, DisplayNote’s latest update ensures an instant connection, allowing you to dive straight into your content without any unnecessary delays. Whether you're presenting in a boardroom, sharing ideas in a classroom, or simply sharing home videos, the swift and reliable connection will be a game-changer.
At DisplayNote we understand that crisp visuals and clear audio are paramount for effective communication and collaboration. With our update, you can now experience AirPlay streaming at its finest. With our expertise in video streaming, we’ve optimized and configured the hardware support to decode and display the results in the fastest streaming experience possible. This results is a noticeable reduction in latency (100ms or less) when comparing the participants's screen to the main display.
Thanks to our previous update, AirPlay discovery can occur on any network within range. There’s no app installation, network switching, or session IDs to input, with a few clicks you’re connected and streaming like never before.

Share a Window
With our latest update, fans of the DisplayNote desktop app (Windows + Mac) will now see the option to share a window, as well as their entire screen. When you’re ready to start casting your screen, you’ll now be greeted with a modal to decide which window you’d like to share, or if you’d like to proceed with presenting your full screen.
This update means you can confidently share the content you need to, while giving you the freedom to work elsewhere on your device in private. It improves your productivity, reduces the need to stop and start your wireless casting, and enhances the flow of your lesson.
Important to know
The touchback and annotation functionality you have available when sharing a full screen is reduced when sharing a window on the desktop app. We’re working hard behind the scenes to ensure the full functionality you’d expect to have is available to you soon.
Support for macOS 14 Sonoma + iOS 17
The DisplayNote App is now fully compatible with Apple's latest offerings: iOS 17 and macOS 14 Sonoma. Whether you're on the newest iPhone or taking advantage of the latest Mac features, our app ensures a seamless, top-notch experience.
