Using Apple AirPlay technology, Apple TV reflects the material on the MacBook or iOS device.This solution does not apply to computers with Windows, Android and Chromebook devices (unapproved Appletv AirPlay Media Player application from ZAPPOTV for Android allows you to play graphic files, audio or video on Apple TV, but will not reflect the Android device).
Apple TV supports HD video and digital sound that can be provided via an optical cable (if you have a monitor or projector and speakers with an optical port).Can receive content via Wi-Fi 802 networks.11a/b/g/n.The latest model also supports direct Peer-to-Peer connections for devices with the OS X Yosemite or iOS 8 system, simplifying the installation.
The disadvantage of Apple TV is that it is larger than in most other devices in this category.For this it uses its own power cable, so it cannot be powered by the display.
At $ 99, Apple TV is expensive, but it contains $ 25 to spend on iTunes.Just pay for the Keynote presentation software and will stay for one season of the series "Friends".
