I am using a D800 and an iPad (4th generation) connected with HDMI cables. Anyone successful in using Live View on an iPad? I am not able to get any response form the iPad or the D800 that they are connected. Both Thom Hogan and Darrell Young indicate this is possible in their books and I am following their recommendations, I think. I don't have iPhoto installed on the iPad, but I don't think this is necessary for Live View to work. My work is mostly in NEF.
Thank you for your thoughts and collective experience.

The iPad doesn't have HDMI input. It only has HDMI output. You would need a separate HDMI monitor to use to display LV.
Or this may work. http://www.camranger.com/

Thank you for your thoughts. The iPad has an HDMI output, but not input. OK that makes sense. Using the "camera connection" to the iPad gen.4 I assumed Live View would be visible. It's not. Maybe if I approach it via USB it will work. I'll give it a try. I do use HDMI output from the iPad to a display for presentations. After many years of view camera work I would like to have the option of a larger viewing screen in the field for the D800.
I am familiar with camranger and it looks promising, but I would like to make the connection as simple as possible.

I bought the camranger and played with it for a hot minute before I got sick. it linked right up to my iPad with no problems. I was able to not only view thru my camera but was also able to control the camera.

To my knowledge, CamRanger is the only option that allows viewing on an iPad before image capture. There are several ways to immediately download an image after capture.

Is there a similar solution for Android tablet devices?

They're working on an Android version of the software, that will use the same Camranger hardware

I use a CamRanger and an iPad to do this live view work with my D800e. It was well worth the $279 that I paid for the CamRanger (still not sure buying an iPad Retina was worth it). It will be even better after the developer does an update with the suggestions several of us here on Nikonians have made.

By the way, you can also use an iPhone5 to do liveview thru a CamRanger. The screen size is limited and the operational messages sometimes get in the way, but it does work.

The developer is very responsive when you suggest improvements.

I just started using Helicon Remote on my Motorola Xoom (Andriod System) and it works nicely.

I downloaded the Helicon Remote APP from the Google APPS Store.

Here's the main website: http://www.heliconsoft.com

I connect my D800E using the supplied UC-E14 USB cable to my Xoom via a USB to micro USB adapter. The Xoom does not have the standard USB ports as input (only micro USB in and micro HDMI out).

As I said I just started playing around with it but it seems like a nice piece of software and it is free. They do have a license you can purchase though and at this time I can't say what you get for the purchase.
