Available Now – Screen Mirroring from Mac to Amazon Fire TVJune 2, 2017
Naarden, Netherlands – AirBeamTV, a Mac software development company, today announced the official release of the Mirror for Fire TV application on the Mac App Store and on their website. Screen Mirroring has been around on MacOS since WWDC 2011 as AirPlay Mirroring, but only for MacOS users who also use an AppleTV. AirBeamTV is the first company worldwide who made it possible to mirror screen and audio from any Mac to all major Smart TV brands and connected TV devices.
“After we served owners of Smart TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG, Panasonic and Philips, we started launching applications for connected devices as well”, explains Jan van Ottele, co-founder and CEO of AirBeamTV, “since then, we added support for Chromecast and Roku. Today, I am proud to announce that we added the Amazon Fire TV to our list of supported players.”
Amazon Fire TV is a digital media player owned by 12% of US households (comScore: 2016). The Fire TV does not have a native option for Screen Mirroring from Apple Mac computers. AirBeamTV has added this much appreciated functionality. To enjoy Screen Mirroring from Mac to Fire TV, users need to follow a simple two-step process:
* Step One is to install the (free) Mirror Receiver for Fire TV app on their Fire TV. The easiest way to do this is from the Amazon website.
* Step Two is to download and install the Mirror for Fire TV app on the Mac. A free trial version of this application is available on the AirBeamTV website.
To use sound as well as video, Mac App Store users need to install a separate audio driver, which can be downloaded for free as well from the AirBeamTV website.
AirBeamTV was founded in 2014 to develop applications for wireless screen mirroring to Smart TVs. It is based in Naarden, The Netherlands. Prior to the application for the Amazon Fire TV, the Company released the Mirror for Samsung TV, LG TV, Panasonic TV, Philips TV, Sony TV, Chromecast, Roku and Android TV macOS applications. Mirror for Samsung TV consistently stays in the top Mac App Store charts already for a year. All Material and Software (C) Copyright 2014-2017 AirBeamTV. All Rights Reserved.
