AirPlay all the way
One of the most popular features of Apple TV is that you can effortlessly mirror your Mac or iOS screen to a TV using Airplay. This is especially useful at the office for a slick, professional presentation or meeting. To get started, select the Airplay icon that appears your menu bar and activate your display preferences to mirror your Mac to the TV that your Apple TV is connected to. Your Apple TV will mirror the image on your Mac as well as the audio. Not only is this quick and easy, it’s cable free as well! At home, you can also opt to play all your favourite movies and series directly from your Mac using Airplay, right from your couch.
