Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Sony Bravia 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 Sony Smart TV from the 2012 models onwards.
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:
First, make sure that your Sony 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!

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...
Doesn’t work properly - This app stopped working after about 20 minutes never worked again. The app loses a considerable amount of quality through mirroring on the tv screen from my laptop and i also don’t think its worth the price tag even if it was properly working! also the 3-4 second delay is really annoying! P.S Really wish I could get my money back!

Glitchy - It works but is very glitchy… video freezes then resumes but skips, makes it unbearable to watch.
Unusable. - Waste of $10. This is the first time I have ever written a review, but felt compelled since I just wasted $10 on something that DOES NOT WORK. I was told by a sales man to get this app to use with my Sony Adroid TV and that I could mirror my MacBook just fine. Well, turns out 90% of the time the app failed to open, and the 2 times I did get it to open the lag was SO LONG that it was useless. Not only the lag, but also the glitching. The mouse pointer tracked about 30 seconds later so if you want to use it as a monitor temporarily it wont work. After this purchase and lots of frustration, I went out and bought the Apple TV. Apple TV is worth every penny. It will do what you want it to do.
