[prMac.com] Roth, Germany - IOSPIRIT GmbH today introduces the Remote Buddy Display for Apple TV. Remote Buddy Display is the brand-new Remote Buddy companion app for tvOS that brings your Mac apps onto the new Apple TV's screen through high-speed screen sharing while turning the Siri Remote into a trackpad, keyboard and remote to control them.
High-speed Screen Sharing:
Developed from scratch specifically for Remote Buddy Display, the highly optimized screen sharing engine delivers up to 60 frames per second at a latency of just around 0.1 seconds.
Use the Siri Remote to control the Mac:
While connected to Remote Buddy on the Mac, Remote Buddy Display turns the Siri Remote into a powerful and versatile input device for the Mac. In Trackpad mode, you can move the mouse cursor, click and scroll. Full integration with Remote Buddy's Mousespot allows highlighting parts of f.ex. a Keynote or PowerPoint presentation or easily locating the mouse pointer on screen. In Keyboard mode, a full on-screen keyboard is available to perform text input. And in Remote mode, 100+ popular Mac apps can be controlled simply with gestures and button presses.
App Control and app-specific Actions:
Pick from Remote Buddy's huge library of app-specific actions, launch, switch and quit apps right from your Apple TV. Mark frequently used items as favorites for quick access. Use Power Actions to put your Mac to sleep, reboot it or power it off.
Your new Apple TV - now even more versatile:
Skip the cloud and syncing woes and beam all the photos, presentations, documents and other visual content on your Mac directly onto the big screen while using the Siri Remote to control the apps displaying them.
Turn your Siri Remote into an awesome presentation tool with Mouse Spot. Connect your Apple TV to a projector in your conference room and use it as a shared Mac display and remote control solution for the whole team.
