I’ve been playing around with mirroring content on my iPad2 to my classroom LCD projector (with an Apple TV connected).
But now I’m becoming greedy. I also want my MacBook Air to mirror its desktop content as well. Why didn’t Apple support AirPlay for Mac OS X when it was released last summer? That would simply be too convenient to connect a computer to a projector, eliminating the need for 25+ feet of plenum-rated cables running through our classroom ceilings.
Coming this summer, it looks as if I might get my wish. Mac’s next OS upgrade – OS X Mountain Lion – will feature AirPlay support.
Now that this dream will become a reality, I am still not completely satisfied. Why can’t we get LCD Projectors with AirPlay support?
