Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Sony Bravia Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed!
This works on any Sony Smart TV from the 2012 models onwards.
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/MirrorSony
In using the app, there will be about 1 to 2 seconds 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:
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 Sony 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 Sony TV.
Enable Audio: you can choose whether you would like to hear the audio on your Mac or through the speakers of your Sony 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 Sony. 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!

AirBeamTV is the State-of-the-Art in Video Software Engineering - Installed the Demo Version and it mirrored my MacBook Pro Retina Display. Purchased the Full version and attempted to stream Youtube Video over a range of resolutions on 2016 Sony HDTV connected directly to my 2nd Gen Airport Extreme Router Ethernet Port on 5MHz Channel. Persistant Start-Stop at ANY resolution. AirBeamTV suspected 2nd Gen Router BandWidth Problem. I contacted Customer Support and they Immediatly responded with very specific diagnostic guidance suggestions. Then, a week latter, they apparently went back to the fundemental Video Architecture and resolved the problem with only a software update. AMAZING. This is nothing less than a technical tour-de-force by an extremely talented group of Imagineers. Wow… I was especially impressed by the higher than 1080p resolution options including 1440p which my Sony could Display and all the way up to 4K 2160p. which my Sony could not Display. Wow...
Dont buy - this is a horrible app. it Lags a lot.

Works pretty well - So far this is working pretty well. There’s been a couple of glitches but so far it works out. When I asked for help on an issue, they got back to me and it fixed the problem (I lost the sound on my computer when NOT using the app). We have not had a long delay or lag (only about 3 second from what is on computer to TV). I’m pretty happy with it so far. Only been using it a couple of weeks.We have a Mac computer and a Sony 4K TV. We just got a sound bar for it and for some reason the sound will not go through that when using the app…had to turn it (the sound bar)off to just have sound from the TV itself. I’m still figuring this stuff out so it might be something simple.
I think it’s great! - I tried the demo first and was glad to spend $10 for this slick interface. Basically, everything worked perfectly. Especially for streaming video. The picture on my 55” 4k Sony from my late 2001 2.5ghz MacBook Pro 17' is excellent! It would be even better if there was no lag for surfing or working in apps, but I could hard wire for that. It a simple automatic connection that is easy to select, without changing any settings on the tv, no matter what source I was using, and it’s up and running in seconds. At the drop of a hat, at any time I can put it up on the big screen. Bam! It works! What’s to complain about? I got over the 2-3 second lag real quick! All I can say is that it has been flawless the dozen plus times I have used it, even hours at a time, pausing or doing whatever I chose. Good job, guys! Thanks!
