Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Samsung Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed!
To see if your TV is supported and your local network is good enough for screen mirroring, please download the FREE trial version here: http://bit.ly/MirrorSamsung
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
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 dependant 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:
After launching the app, you will see the app icon appearing in the top bar of your Mac. Click on the icon and you will see a list of options:
Here we scan your home network for connected Samsung Smart TVs. When a TV is found in the same network as your Mac, it will be listed here. To start mirroring, select the TV from this list.
Under Displays, you will see all your screens. The primary screen of your Mac, or, when you have another monitor connected, you will see that screen as well. Please select the screen that you would like to have mirrored on your Samsung TV.
Enable Audio: you can choose whether you would like to hear the audio on your Mac or through the speakers of your Samsung TV.
When you are experiencing performance issues with the app, it might be because your local network is not coping with the video data that we are sending from your Mac to your TV. You can select a lesser quality network and try again.
If you have questions or would like to provide feedback, please send us an e-mail or post a message on our Facebook page.
When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

Most Helpful Reviews
Lag is as advertised, but overall it’s great! - Great app. I think it is worth mentioning that there is a lag between the tv screen and the regular screen, just a few seconds as advertised, so it may not be for all purposes. However, I tested it out using the demo and am now a very happy customer.
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.

worthless - Has lag of 5-10 seconds. what could I possibly need that for? Biggest waste of money I have ever encountered. I reccomend to STAY AWAY.
kkulicik - The app works as stated: mirrors the display with a slight lag and lets you change the audio source. I found it to be way below my expectations: there are no options to manually adjust stuff (have multiple desktops, for example) and the resolution is terrible. It is better than nothing, but doesn’t work for me.
Best app EVER! - In an age when you can watch virtually ANY movie or TV show online for free, this application is an absolute MUST! Works perfectly! It’s what i’ve always wanted and needed in an app. No wires, no worries.. LOVE IT! Highly recommend it.
Won’t play content from the Apple Store - So this works great to mirror your screen on your Samsung TV, but you can’t actually play movies or videos from the Apple Store or Amazon. For an app that presents itself as an alternative to buying Apple TV it would have been nice if they would make you aware of that beforehand.
Finally I can use my TV for Video Production! - I work with a lot of video editing and producing. Now I can see how my work will look on different types of TV, just with one click. It’s like having a testing suite for your web application code. Yeah! I’m a bit of a nerd.
