When last I put together my MacGyver IT collection, the AirTame hadn’t shipped yet, but it was well worth the wait. I'd been frustrated because I needed an AppleTV for my Macs and a Miracast unit for my Intel Windows folks. While Kramer’s VIA system supports both, I’m not wild about spending $800 per system.
The AirTame is similar in size to the Chromecast, but works great for Mac, PC, iOS, and Android, while not limiting you to Google/Chrome apps. The AirTame can also display an HTML5 Web page for eye candy. Its Mac OSX app has worked flawlessly after an initial setup glitch was solved by AirTame’s tech support, which sent me a new SD card image to flash using the free Pi Baker image writer software. The downside: At the moment, the iOS app can only send images and PDFs from the iPad or Dropbox. Full screen share isn’t available at this time.
Above: As small as a Chromecast, AirTame combines lower-latency wireless video for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android platforms.
