AppleTV and Wireless Presentations

leave a comment »

We use Apple’s AirPlay to display slide decks, videos, and documents on our conference room projector using Coaxion and our iPads.  And with the imminent release of OS X Mountain Lion for the Mac, we will be able to do the same using our Macs. 

We’re huge fans of Apple TV and we think they will be indispensable in every conference room and public presentation setting for easy display & sharing of PC content. Finding the right connector and synchronizing up with wired projectors often wastes 10 to 15 minutes of presentation time getting the laptop and projector working.

In this Forbes article, Marc Tobias says AppleTV is the best tool for delivering live wireless video presentations and describes how he connects a camera and iPad to his AppleTV for presentations on the go.

Update: Today (July 24, 2012) Apple announced they shipped 1.3M Apple TVs in Q3 2012 (up 170% y/y) for a total of 4M so far this fiscal year.  Maybe one day, we will be able to walk into any conference room and give a wireless presentation…
