Screen Mirroring from Mac to Chromecast now available from AirBeamTVApril 14, 2017
Naarden, Netherlands – AirBeamTV, a Mac software development company, today announced the official release of the Mirror for Chromecast application on the Mac App Store and on their website. Screen Mirroring (sometimes called Screen Casting) allows you to see the screen of your Mac, or any external display connected to your Mac, on your TV. This makes it an ideal solution for watching videos on TV, or giving Powerpoint or Keynote presentations on a TV with a Chromecast connected to it.
The Mirror for Chromecast app works on Chromecast 1 and 2 and the new Chromecast Ultra. Because the connection between the Mac and the TV is based on Google Cast technology, the Mirror for Chromecast app also works on Smart TVs based on the Android TV operating system, such as the latest models from Sony and Philips.
“Google has sold an estimated 40 million Chromecast dongles so far,” explains Jan van Ottele, co-founder and CEO of AirBeamTV. “Even though some popular websites like YouTube and Netflix have cast buttons to play on Chromecast, lots of popular content cannot be played on Chromecast. Now this changed: whatever you can play on your Mac, can also play on your Chromecast.”
Dr. Demid Borodin, co-founder and Director of Video Technology, adds: “It was a technically challenging task to enable mirroring on Google Cast devices. However, our users have asked for it, and we managed to do it! I am very happy with the result, and with the fact that we keep adding new popular devices to our product line.”
Mirror for Chromecast is the latest in a family of popular screen mirroring apps from AirBeamTV. The first product, Mirror for Samsung TV, quickly raised to the top paid video apps on the Mac App Store in USA and other countries, and consistently stays within top 10 up to now.
AirBeamTV was founded in 2014 to develop applications for wireless screen mirroring to Smart TVs. It is based in Naarden, The Netherlands. Earlier in 2016, the Company released the Mirror for Samsung TV, LG TV, Panasonic TV, Philips TV and Sony TV macOS applications. All Material and Software (C) Copyright 2014-2017 AirBeamTV.
