Over the last couple of years we’ve seen more businesses utilizing Apple TV in the conference room. You can’t beat the $99 price tag for a quick and easy way to broadcast presentations, demonstrations, and meeting agendas wirelessly to your TV or Projector from your Mac. Unfortunately if your Mac is 2010 or earlier, or if you are using a PC, you typically wouldn’t be able to utilize the Airplay functionality. To get around this for our clients, we’ve been using an inexpensive piece of Software called AirParrot.
For only $9.99, AirParrot allows you to wirelessly stream video from any Mac or PC to Apple TV 2 and up. In our experience, the performance is very good, and the software even allows you to switch between multiple presenters easily. We use it in our own office for staff meetings, as well as presenting to our clients. You can check out more about AirParrot in the videos below, or on their website at http://www.airsquirrels.com/airparrot/.
