Education

Displaying your Mac or PC to a classroom has never been easier.

AirParrot enables displaying your desktop wirelessly to an Apple TV connected to a projector. AirParrot works on Windows and Mac computers, making it a versatile solution that can be used in almost any education environment.

Mirroring your computer to an Apple TV means you can rid the classroom of costly and fragile cables or connectors. It allows teachers to untether from the podium or desk by eliminating wires, and it allows students to connect without moving from their seats.

Demonstrate a specific application or present while using other applications on your computer. Only the selected application will be shown to students. If your classroom is using Windows tablets, wirelessly mirror them to a projector for the entire class to see!

AirParrot allows anyone in the conference room to present to the entire group.

Presenters can display content without interrupting meetings, and because it works on Windows and Mac computers, anyone can use it!

By using an Apple TV that's already present in the room, no extra wires or dongles are needed. Even without an Apple TV, our receiving software, Reflector, can be installed on any computer to allow wireless mirroring. Switching presenters can often be a pain, but AirParrot allows multiple presenters or the ability to switch on the fly.

Specific-application mirroring allows a presenter to show one window to an entire group while working privately in other application. Hiding notification center also adds a level of privacy for presenters.
