How many time have you been to a business meeting, talk, or whatever and there is a 5-10 minute (or longer!) delay while the presenter futzes with the projector to get it to work?
Personally, I’ve lost count. Heck I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve lost precious meeting or presentation or class time minutes trying to get projectors to work. But here’s an idea, how about ditching the projector altogether? How about an HDTV and an Apple TV?
Don’t shake your head…it’s not as crazy as you might think.
From this MacWorld article it sounds like it works pretty well.
Actually I can tell you from my own experience it does work well.
Some caveats here. First AirPlay and video mirroring from iOS devices only works for the iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and the new iPad. You can’t mirror from a MacBook (for example) to an Apple TV (natively)…yet. Though when Mountain Lion (10.8) comes out this summer that is one of the features. In the meantime you can try AirParrot to do the same thing.
Easy for boardroom presentations.
Hmm, this could make an Apple TV a presenter’s best friend.
