See, hear and control your Mac through Apple TV – using Siri Remote as trackpad, remote & keyboard – and beaming your Mac's screen contents to Apple TV using Remote Buddy Display's novel, high-speed screen sharing technology.
Lean back, connect to your Mac right from your Apple TV and control it with the remote in your hand. Skip the cloud and beam all the photos, presentations, documents and other content on your Mac directly onto the big screen.
Turn your Siri Remote into an awesome presentation tool with Mouse Spot. Connect your Apple TV to a projector in your conference room and use it as a shared Mac display with an integrated remote control solution for the whole team.
Remote Buddy Display is the tvOS companion app of the "Remote Buddy" Mac app.
• Screen Sharing
Beam your Mac's screen right onto your TV. Remote Buddy Display uses its own high-performance screen sharing engine and protocol, developed from ground-up for tvOS and iOS, with a focus on high framerates and low latency.
The built-in Audio Output switcher and volume controls give you control over where your Mac should send audio. By default, Remote Buddy Display selects your Apple TV as System Audio Output when you connect to a Mac - and switches back when you disconnect or switch away from Remote Buddy Display (requires OS X 10.8 or later on the Mac).
• Remote Control
Turn the remote of your Apple TV into a remote for over 100+ popular Mac apps, for which Remote Buddy provides tailor-made plugins.
Turn the touchpad of your Apple TV Remote into a mini-trackpad for your Mac. Provides support for clicking, dragging and scrolling.
Use Remote Buddy's full on-screen keyboard to type text or control apps. Complete with character previews, modifier and cursor keys. Remote Buddy Display also supports Bluetooth keyboards paired to your Apple TV (requires tvOS 9.2 or later).
• Mouse Spot
While in trackpad mode, rest a finger on the remote's touchpad for two seconds to highlight the area around the mouse cursor. When you're done, just lift the finger for two seconds and the highlight effect disappears. An awesome tool to bring more life and expression to presentations - or just locate the mouse cursor on screen.
• Actions and App Control
Pick from Remote Buddy's huge library of app-specific actions, launch, switch and quit apps right from your Apple TV. Mark frequently used items as favorites for quick access.
• Power Control
Sleep, Reboot or Shut down actions are easily accessible. Using Wake-On-LAN, Remote Buddy Display can also wake your Mac from sleep again.
