If you are on MacOS 10.15 (Catalina), please allow Screen Recording in System Preferences / Security & Privacy. For assistance, please contact our 24/7 support engineers.
Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Philips 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 Philips Smart TV from the 2012 models onward.
If your Philips TV is running the Android TV operating system, there is also a Android TV app on the Google Play Store that you can install on your Philips TV for even better performance, check it here: http://bit.ly/gpsmirror
In using the app, there will be about a second of latency. 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 an "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!

Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app to watch. movies on my tv from my macbook. I could not get my tv to connect, and after an hour of trying, I got frustrated. DO NOT waste your money. I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing. Disappointed and would truly like a refund.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear that the app did not work for you. Can you tell us more about the issue you are facing? What does not work for you? Are you unable to connect to your Philips TV or unable to mirror to it? Is your Mac and TV connected to the same router? For our app to detect your TV, both devices should be connected to the same home network. So, can you check if thats the case?
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 mirror your Mac screen to your TV.
If you are still unsatisfied with your purchase, you can always get a refund from Apple. This is how that works: http://bit.ly/mac-refund. However, please do contact us, so we can help you get connected!
This app does what they advertise it to do. There is some minor lag... 2-3 seconds at worst... but nothing that I was losing sleep over. I allows me to simulcast my screen to my TV for viewing church services and other web based events. I give an absolute 5 stars to their Help Desk who was resolute and diligent in addressing issues I had early on... not their app, but MY Philips TV. After about 5 email exchanges... everything works fine.
Works but could use tweaking
It's true, there's a bit of lag and in the course of a one-hour show, I've typically needed to stop mirroring and restart twice. Usually (but not always) it's when an ad starts or ends. But the app mirrors my laptop to a Phillips Smart TV. That's what it's supposed to do -- and it does it. I'm giving a four because giving a one for lag seems petty. I'd like to help the average towards at least three until these guys figure it out.
