    Hello all. Any ideas on how I can use an iPad as an external monitor NOT using AIR DISPLAY? It will be for pro use so I don't trust wireless due to so much traffic, and while testing, there was some lag time using our program on the iPad even with fast router/internet.
    OR is there any way to setup an iPad to be used exclusively as a monitor. They are the perfect size for use on a stage setup, but can't find a solution involving cables.
    Thanks in advance.
    Dan

    I don't think that's what Dan is looking for.
    I've been looking for the same, but it's probably not going to happen until Apple allows or adds an display input thing to iOS. Maybe when they eventually launch an iPad Pro.

    The old 30 pin adaptor made a physical connection to a TV or monitor which had HDMI. I can't think of another way to do it except mirroring at present though.
