Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Samsung 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 Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV).
E = 2012
F = 2013
H = 2014
J = 2015
K = 2016
M = 2017
N = 2018
R = 2019
Q = QLED (supported)
UE55_E_S8000 = 2012.
UE78_H_U8500L = 2014.
In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). 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 a Wifi 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 Samsung 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.
Limitations: Apple has HDCP DRM protection for playing iTunes movies. This means that screen mirroring is not possible when watching movies from iTunes.
When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

long delay with older TV
The delay on my TV (UE46F5500) is typically 10-30 seconds, the TV also shows "loading" for that long initially. Otherwise picture & sound ok. I use this only to play music via speakers so not so big deal, but 1 for the audio-only feature request.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to write a review about our Mirror for Samsung TV app. Can you send us your diagnostics information (you can do this from within the app, please refer to this review in the comment field), so we can investigate any problem that you might be experiencing with our app. Thanks!
I would welcome only audio-mode, because nearly every Samsung TV (picture settings) is able to switch off the screen and keep sound playing... it shloud be also very low-latency. Thank you
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your suggestion. We will definitely look at adding support for this feature in the coming future. Thanks for helping us make the app better :)
Demo verzion is faster thean full
I tried demo version and after two days I buyed full version. I must to say this: Demo version is faster than full version. Now I see often on TV “Loading” and I don’t know why. It’s problem if I want to play movie from photo gallery because screen is not smooth.
Developer Response ,
Hi Marek, thanks for your review. The demo version is actually the same as the full version, the only difference is the 3 minute time limit for the demo version. When you see loadings, please power cycle your router. Loadings are due to (temporary) poor local networking conditions, when can be fixed with a router reboot.
