A few months ago I posted how awesome airplay mirroring would be for FCPX. According to Macrumors, it's coming to Lion. For those of you that haven't used it, it's a wireless way to stream your entire iPhone 4S and iPad2 screen and audio over wifi to your apple tv. Using it on the iPad2 and iPhone4S is pretty impressive. It's really surprising how little lag there is to it (you can play accelerometer based racing games on it - and it's responsive).
This could be a missing link for those of us trying to get external monitor support from FCPX. Obviously, it won't be the same as a good AJA or Blackmagic card, it won't be useful for color correction, etc - but it WILL be useful for those client monitor situations. Heck - it can even get the client out of your hair in the suite. I'm actually surprised it wasn't already incorporated into Lion, but it's clear this is coming.
Anyways, you can read all about it on the macrumors website.
