Best aspect ratio for Dex on a portable monitor?
Still looking for option for a portable monitor. Is 16:9 the best aspect ratio forDeX?
- According to samsung here, it's best to run dex in 16:19 @ The recommended aspect ratio is 16:9 (2560 x 1440, 1920 x 1080, or 1600 x 900). Can anyone confirm this? Does rescalling look bad on DeX?
- I'll be using the monitor as a head unit monitor, do you suggest a matt finish to avoid extra glare? Believe the glass finish looks better.
- I'll either be getting a 13.3 or 15.6" display @ 2K resolutoion, as 4K is overkill for a small screen. An OLED display is tempting but concern about the burn in. I'll be runnning static icons and apps on the display so it may be better to get an IPS pannel instead for my use case.
its a desktop interface....its not remotely optimized for in a vehicleyou're much better off looking at android auto, orcarwebguru, agama, car launcher if you want to diy it all
Mac M2 Max 16” - colour accuracy?
Hey folks, Recently I have been getting more travel jobs. I'm a videographer, editor, and colourist shooting on a 6k pro.I have been taking my mac mini on the road with a pro-art display to give me some degree of colour accuracy - However I'm thinking the added portability of the macbooks would be very welcome (no monitor or mac mini to lug around with accessories)How reliable is the screen when it comes to colour accuracy for grading and quick turnaround projects while travelling?
always rember you need a valibrated environment for actual grading, without that what are you even looking at.but yes the xdr displays reference mode is pretty good, will be better than the proart as a gui, xdr is the only display that can be accurate on a mac for gui as sad as it is
So u need an Io device to get clean signal. And calibrate ypur display. That way u can get accurate colors and brightness levels
Is there any way to use full functionality of air ar with IOS/IPadOS?
All of my products are from Apple , I use my iPad with Apple Pencil for studying and I always keep my portable monitor with me to see the exercises and write on iPad at the same time , is there any way to connect Nreal air ar as external monitor for IPad ? Or can I somehow run the MacOS on iPad to do so ?
The best you can do is use the Apple Lightning to Digital A/V Adapter with the nReal Adapter to display whatever can be displayed by the Apple Lightning to Digital A/V Adapter in the glasses.There is no Nebula software for iOS or iPadOS, so AR Space (augmented reality) is not available.There is Nebula Beta for MacOS available and described here: https://www.nreal.ai/nebula
What screen size for a portable dnd display?
I've recently started using a portable monitor to dm with and I wanna get a larger screen as I currently have a 15.9in and while it works for small melees I'd like something that can fit more of the scene in.I dm at a bar so it needs to be portable as I don't drive, and was looking at projects to convert monitors to portable monitors.My main debate is 21in, 24in, 27in, or 32in. I would like to get the smallest size that would still be a good experience for players.Any input?
Is this like a DM screen or a play surface?For DM screen I'd keep the 15.9 laptop, that's what I use and it's a good size but I wouldn't mind a second screen provided it was also super thin like a normal DM screen.If it's a play surface then the bigger the better. In this case I have an old. TV I use, slap a wooden frame to prop it up, keep it from wobbling, and vent heat right. And a thin layer of acrylic to protect the screen and your good to goE: forgot you were looking portable, so I'd say 32". Anything much bigger will be a pain to get through doors and stuff
S8 Ultra vs S23 Ultra with Dex and Portable Display
Hello,Sorry if the question sound a bit strange but I can't find a real answer anywhere.I currently have a S23 Ultra and I'm planning to buy also an S8 Ultra.Now what I'm asking is: except the portability, is there a real difference user experience between using an S8 Ultra and an S23 Ultra connected to an external portable 4k monitor. The dex experience is the same on each devices?Sorry for the dumb question but I have always (and currently using) Apple and this is the first time that I'm trying Android on a Samsung Device.Thanks
The larger screen of the tablet has some advantages if you use it as a secondary screen . The configuration setting enabling the mouse to flow between tablet and monitor is under Samsung DeX. The tablet will remain at its defailt resolution, while the monitor will be at the resolution that you choose up to its maximum capability with a few caveats. The Samsung DeX desktop only appears on the monitor not the tablet which stays in its default layout.
How do I use my surface as a graphics tablet or monitor?
I have decided to put some life into my tablet after it has been sitting around doing nothing for years. I've used linux for about 4 months now, and have fallen in love with it, but I only have experience in distros that use KDE. I am using my Surface Go 2 with Fedora 37 gnome and my laptop, an hp envy 13, with Fedora 37 KDE. All the touch and stylus drivers work just fine with the surface.In apps like darktable, libre writer, xournal++, and obsidian with the excalidraw plugin, I want to have use of a graphics tablet. In general too, I want to have a handy portable monitor.This leads to the question, how would I do both of these two tasks? Most of the graphics tablet software I've seen focuses on mirroring linux to an android tablet. What could I use between two linux devices and still have pressure support? I don't care about have one app that does both, but a singular solution would be convenient. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Waylus looks like the best option at the moment.I've had luck with using gnome's virtual monitor support, but that only covers using another laptop as a monitor, so I assume you'd lose pressure sensitivity with your stylus.Interestingly, the RDP protocol does have support for sending stylus pressure but FreeRDP does not implement the client end (and I assume other linux RDP clients don't either).
Framework Laptop dGPU Idea
OK, call me crazy, but here me out. Also tell me if this is even possible.What would happen if you designed a custom Framework chassis that took advantage of all its current internals - motherboard, SSD, RAM, swappable expansion cards, everything. And then add a desktop GPU. Strip it down, add your own fans, and have it all encased in a larger custom chassis. Change the screen to a portable monitor (likely 17-inch given the form factor). Maybe add a USB hub inside for extra I/O slots.My question is, is this even possible? What changes would need to be made for it to be possible? From a laptop thermals/power consumption perspective, you wouldn't have to run a 4090 to get laptop 4090 performance - probably closer to a desktop 4070, because we're using the desktop version. Also, as you've likely guessed, price of components isn't really a question - this is a hypothetical thought experiment.
