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!

Excellent app apart from the time lag
Ive been after an app like this for ages and after researching this looked to be the best one. I am very pleased with this app, its easy to install and use, the only issue i seem to have is the time lag between my Laptop and the information to the tv. There is quite a delay between them. it would be great to see an improvement with this as it can get quite annoying when the speah doesn’t match the picture, it gets very confusing. Glad I purchased it though as it pretty much does what it says it will do. Some slight tweaks would make this a much more reliable app
Keep up the good work though you’ve got a great app growing here

Hi Wuzzel1, thanks for your positive review! We are working on reducing the latency, a major update will be available end of Q2 which will do just that. For the audio: when you download and install the free audio driver (http://bit.ly/MirrorAudio), both the video and the audio will come from the TV and will be in sync.
Just works really well / Fantastic Support Too
I bought this app to mirror my imac to my Samsung Tv and it has been very useful for me and the family. Even better, i had an issue with the sound after a recent update to my apple software, so messaged the developer for help. The service they offered me was extremely swift (contacted me within 24 hours) and professional. The additional information they gave me was extemely clear, concise and helped me to resolve my issue with the sound very quickly. I can only say that this type of high quality service they gave me is rare and the staff and the company are a credit to themselves. The app is excellent and I would not hesitate to deal with these people, thanks again for your excellent service.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Glad that we were able to help you get this issue fixed. Keep enjoying the app :)
Works . . . but needs the sound driver
If you look through other reviews, the developer, (I think) mentions a free to down load sound driver that bring the sound back into sync - without this additional download this app is "limited" in its use but once you get this additional driver then the casting and sound syncs up perfectly and it's well worth the money
<the passage of time>
After a few weeks use, one little "annoyance" I've noticed is the app, computer and TV take a bit of "jiggling" to get to sync up - it's NOTHING that you can't get around with a bit of patience OR even waiting a few minutes for all elements to sync up (like the instructions actually tell you to do), but . . . I'm not reknowned for my patience
Developer Response ,
Thanks for taking the time to review us. Can you explain us a bit more on what you mean by jiggling? Do you see any buffering or any other behavior? Please contact us either via email (email@example.com), Facebook Messenger or through ‘send diagnostic information’ from the app. Our support team is available 24/7 and would be glad to help you get connected. Thanks!
