Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Philips Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can also stream individual video files from your Mac to your TV. Also, we included the option to watch one window on your Mac, and another window on your TV!
This works on any Philips Smart TV from the 2012 models onward.
If your Philips TV is running the Android TV operating system, there is also a Android TV app on the Google Play Store that you can install on your Philips TV for even better performance, check it here: http://bit.ly/gpsmirror
In using the app, there will be about a second of latency. So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!
The quality of your experience will be dependent on the quality of your local network. Some tips to enhance the experience:
- Preferably, connect your TV by LAN cable to your router.
- Use an "ac" router. If you don't have one, then an "n" router.
- Try not to overload your wifi network by moving big files around while you are mirroring.
How the app works:
First, make sure that your Samsung TV is on the same local network and same subnet as your Mac. The TV should not be in screen mirroring mode, but just on "TV" Mode or any HDMI IN port.
After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac and the app will look for your TV on the network. It will show your TV when it has found it. Now, you have two options:
Mirror your Mac Screen:
Use this option to put the screen of your Mac on TV. In source, you can select which screen (or attached monitor) you want to display on TV. If you are running multiple applications on your Mac, you can also select which application window you want to see on TV.
Enable Sound: check this to hear the sound of your Mac coming from the TV. You will need the additional (free) audio driver, which you can download here: http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio
Play Video File:
Use this option if you have a video file on your Mac and you want to play just the file on TV. Drop it in the box and it will play on TV.
Settings (the icon in the bottom right of the app): click here to request support from our 24/7 support staff. They usually respond within 2 hours on any query that you might have. If your question is technical, please also include the diagnostics information.
Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.
When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app to watch. movies on my tv from my macbook. I could not get my tv to connect, and after an hour of trying, I got frustrated. DO NOT waste your money. I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing. Disappointed and would truly like a refund.

Sorry to hear that the app did not work for you. Can you tell us more about the issue you are facing? What does not work for you? Are you unable to connect to your Philips TV or unable to mirror to it? Is your Mac and TV connected to the same router? For our app to detect your TV, both devices should be connected to the same home network. So, can you check if thats the case?
Please contact us either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook Messenger or through ‘send diagnostic information’ from the app. Our support team is available 24/7 and would be glad to help you mirror your Mac screen to your TV.
If you are still unsatisfied with your purchase, you can always get a refund from Apple. This is how that works: http://bit.ly/mac-refund. However, please do contact us, so we can help you get connected!
Thanks, app is perfect.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Our app does not depend on the internet connection, but on the home network setup. Though you have a good router setup, there could be (temporary) local network issues that could cause connection disruption between your TV and your Mac. There are multiple ways to improve the performance of your home network. One of the easiest ways to improve the network performance is to simply restart your router. Please visit the FAQ on our website (https://www.airbeam.tv/faq/) for more tips on how to improve the quality and performance of your home network.
If the problem still persists, please contact us either via email (email@example.com), Facebook Messenger or through ‘send diagnostic information’ from the app. Our support team is available 24/7 and would be glad to help you get connected. Thanks!
