Apple announces 1080p HDMI out for mirrored iPad display
As part of the iPad 2 event today Apple announced a new $39 HDMI accessory that will do full display mirroring for iPad up to 1080p. It will work with all apps, requires no setup or configuration, and can pass through power so you can charge while playing your games and videos on the big screen.
Put your slides, movies, photos, and everything else that fills your iPad screen on an even bigger screen — your HDTV. The new Apple Digital AV Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on your iPad so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen, or other HDMI-compatible display. It even routes digital audio to screens that support it. And a second built-in 30-pin connector lets you charge your iPad while it’s mirroring. So you don’t have to worry about running out of battery mid-meeting, mid-scene, or mid-trip down memory lane.
