Application to mirror the screen of your Mac to any Samsung 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 Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV).

E = 2012
F = 2013
H = 2014
J = 2015
K = 2016

For instance:

UE55_E_S8000 = 2012.
UE78_H_U8500L = 2014.

In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). 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:

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.

When you like the app, please don’t forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!

  1. Hello, i tried the app, and its working fine, my only issue is that i cannot set the subtitle for movies. Is there solution for this? i tried on the tv, but i dont think its the tvs problem./

  2. Hello, i just tested out the trial version. It had some trouble finding out my device. my tv is 2017 samsung 4k smart tv. The app eventually works with some latency lag around 7 seconds. Honestly that's not an issue for me. However i am a bit concerned because it took time to find my tv…. Is the macbook app a one time payment or is it like a yearly thing? i love the app for my use, just for streaming live football.

  3. hello, i installed the app and its working, the only issue i have is that for some movie files appears it's an unsupported format. Is there a solution for this issue?

  4. Hi, you mention in the video that your mac is connected to wifi via ethernet cable. Will your app work smoothly, i.e., without lag or breaks, if connected via high speed wireless?

  5. Super application, hyper simple d'installation et d'utilisation. Support technique exceptionnel, par inattention, j'ai acheté la version pour LG TV au lieu de Samsung TV, le support facebook a mis moins de 30 mn pour me répondre (à 23h – france). Je recommande très vivement. Utilisée sur macbook pro début 2O11.

  6. Will this work from a MAC to a TV? I am tired of buying apple tv's all over my house. Hope you can help. The Wife bought s chroamcast and it does not work unless you stream through Google Chroma. My uncle says his Roku will do it but he does not have a MAC. Any help would be appreciated with a bunch of new equipment and wires
