Use AirParrot or AirServer as an alternative to AirPlay mirroring
A big new feature on Mountain Lion is AirPlay. With AirPlay mirroring you can connect your Mac to your Apple TV and display your desktop on the Apple TV screen. This will be very useful for conference and meeting rooms across the world and will surely help to boost sales.
AirParrot, a new app available on the Mac Store, does pretty much exactly what AirPlay mirroring does but doesn’t support audio – a feature coming soon. For just 10$ it is the perfect alternative to AirPlay mirroring until its release later this year.
AirServer has been around a little long and does a fairly similar job. AirServer turns your Mac into an AirPlay receiver. This means you can send audio and video from iOS devices to your Mac. This is perfect for applications like Spotify and iMovie. At just 8$ this is also a good alternative to the summer release of AirPlay mirroring.
