PALO ALTO, Calif., and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2011 ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Supporting the growing base of Apple iPad users, DisplayLink Corp has launched its first iPad application for Windows PC users to wirelessly connect an iPad to a PC and utilize the screen real estate as a secondary display.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œDisplayLink is the premier provider and number one brand of USB virtual graphics used in multi-display scenarios,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Dr. Andrew Fisher, co-founder and chief technologist, hardware. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe are bringing this technology for the first time to iPad users, many who travel with their iPad and Windows notebook/netbook wherever they go.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
