Has anyone tried to stream the proclaim presentation to an apple tv? We have two tv's in our narthex that are synched to apple tv's. In the past we have converted a keynote slide presentation to quicktime to use itunes to stream our announcement loop. I would like to be able to stream proclaim instead....but have no idea how.

Suggestions?

One option might be to use the iPad as a middleman. Using the Proclaim remote app on the iPad you can view the slides from the presentation and then use airplay to mirror that to your Apple TV.

Another option would be to try an app like airParrot that lets you mirror directly from a Mac to an Apple TV.

I haven't tried these options, but it might be a place to start. Let me know if it works well. We might have a need for something like this before too long at our church as well.

Mountain Lion will by default support mirroring to airplay devices like apple tv. So downloading the public beta would give you a solution too.

Has anyone tried this yet?  I am fascinated by this possibility.

Today I tested the following setup:

PC running Proclaim

iPad running Proclaim Remote in the fullscreen mode

Airplay iPad display to PC running Airserver (which lets a PC play in the Airplay world)

Results:

Everything worked well,with the PC running Airserver about half a second behind the main presentation. Because I am using Airplay, there is an iPad status bar across the top of the screen, but it isn't too distracting and would work in a pinch.

So, not perfect, but it does get the job done.

Also, some TVs and projectors could be adjusted so that the bar at the top might not actually show up. Our projectors have the function to move the display up and if we go far enough it cuts off the top of the screen. Worth a try to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Really would love to see Proclaim include this as a built in feature.
