Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Samsung 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 Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV).
E = 2012
F = 2013
H = 2014
J = 2015
K = 2016
M = 2017
UE55_E_S8000 = 2012.
UE78_H_U8500L = 2014.
In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). 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.
When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

Great app for the price - This app works very reliably. However, a prospective purchaser should know that there is a short delay between the computer and the TV. If you’re moving around a lot to show someone your computer projected onto the TV you need to accept this delay and be okay with it. For the price, this app is well worth it. For a video, that you just let play, the short delay doesn’t matter because the video works continously as normal. This app is super cheap, one time. It is super easy to connect to a Samsung TV and works very reliably. Very well worth it.
worst purchase - Dont waste money, can’t say it doesnt work but if you want to watch a movie or something, hope you like that it buffers every three seconds. not worth ten dollars or even a dollar.

Not worth $10 - I downloaded this because I wanted a bigger screen to write my papers on. First of all there is a 3 second delay between what you do on your laptop and when it shows on the TV, so it isn’t useful at all if you’re trying to actually use it. Second, there is no audio so you can’t even watch movies, TV, or listen to music. The screen also looks weird on the TV and is a lot smaller so you kind of have to strain your eyes to actually read what’s on the screen. Better off buying an HDMI cable and hooking your laptop up that way, or just getting Apple TV. There is also no refunds so it’s a waste of $10.
Does exactly what it promises for me - Allows us to mirror our Mac and Samsung TV - works great. Can “shift” audio to TV or MAC - but not both if that’s a concern for anyone. Other than that - easy to use - recognizes the TV automatically and delivers on the promise.
EASY TO INSTALL AND WORKS GREAT! - I USE MY MAC MINI TO SAMSUNG SMART TV AND IT WORKS PERFECT. IF THERE IS A LAG I DO NOT NOTICE IT.
Doesn’t work if you want to use iTunes - I bought this so my kids could watch the Christmas movies I bought on iTunes for my kids, but there is a block (that I probaby should have anticipated). I wish I could get my $10 back.
Perfect from my Macbook Pro to my Samsung TV - Two things are required… Pay for the actual app and don’t expect the demo to work for long. AND you must have a fast internet connection. This app is working perfectly on my 70” Samsung TV. I have a raid drive hooked up with my wifi and it plays my movies through my Macbook and onto my TV. Perfect!
