What are Luna Display’s Teleprompter and Office modes about?
4K and 5K resolution support requires a USB-C version of the dongle. Resolutions beyond 4K require macOS Big Sur or later. The update lets you use your Magic Keyboard and trackpad with an iPad while using Luna Display (it works for both Mac and PC).
Luna describes Teleprompter mode as follows:
Pair Luna Display with a beam splitter to give direct eye contact during video calls. Teleprompter mode automatically flips your display image, so that your beam splitter reflects the correct image orientation. It’s perfect for professional meetings, online teaching, or interviews. We first introduced Teleprompter mode for Mac in 2020, and now we’re adding it for PC users.
As for the new Office mode, it was designed for cross-platform workspace and environments with multiple people using Luna. Office Mode ensures Luna doesn’t auto-connect to the first computer it finds on the network. Instead, you must connect manually either via Wi-Fi or USB cable.
Today’s update makes Luna Display even more useful than before. Aside from Mac-to-Mac connections, the software now also supports PC-to-Mac connections. Regardless of your scenario, Luna Display works both wirelessly and via an Ethernet connection.
