Description:

Cast your computer screen to Samsung TV - wirelessly and instantly.
** Note Mac-model requirement below **

Features:
- 8 predefined profiles: 480p...1080p with various quality settings and frame rate ranging from 25 to 60 fps;
- NEW: 5 user profiles - you can define your own parameters and you are limited only by your hardware (mac, TV, net);
- NEW: you can define lags (between what you see on Mac and TV) for each profile based on your needs;
- HW video encoding support (no buffering interruptions due to overloaded CPU) (*);
- Variable-bit-rate video support for the best video quality - every frame looks perfect;
- Dimming: you can dim your computer screen while playing e.g. a movie in a dark room;
- Time shift: if needed, you can offset video and audio +/- 1000 ms in 25 ms steps;
- Dedicated audio driver that allows you to capture your audio regardless of what source is playing;
- Displays current data transfer rate and used/free resources ratio to let you decide on the best profile;
- The app is free for transfers up to 3 minutes; unlimited transfers as a one-off IAP

(*) - The app needs a Mac with "Intel Quick Sync Video"-supported CPU, i.e. a Mac model with processor 2011 and newer; (Please note that MacBook 7,1 (mid 2010), MacBookAir 3,1 (mid 2010), iMac 11,1 (2009-2010) and below are *not* compatible as they do not have that HW feature.)

Most Samsung smart TVs made from 2012 till the present are supported.

What you shall also know:
- TV will ask you to confirm that your computer can send it video during the initiation of the first session (once only);
- By default, you can cast your screen video (useful e.g. for showing photos, giving presentations, browsing web, etc). If you want to transfer also audio together with video (e.g. for playing movies), you will need to install Smartcast audio driver (instructions are in the help section of the app).
- While you can define the lag, you can't go below certain value given by the TV, typically (based on TV model) 3-5 sec i.e. the app is not primarily intended for real-time gaming;
