Basecamp - Apple TV
Tue, 27 Mar 2012
Can we use Apple TV on our Interactive Whiteboards?
If so what do we need to do?

You will need a projector with an
input (the same connector as is on most flat-screen TVs). Most projectors currently in use don’t have that input but yours might.
AppleTV requires that you have an
capable projector. There are adapters available but none of them are particularly cheap. Perhaps Jamie can comment on current prices.

The adapter that I mentioned earlier today is the Startech HDMI to Video adapter. It takes the video and audio from the HDMI on Apple TV and converts it to VGA for video and a standard audio jack.
As Fraser noted they are not inexpensive, we supply this one for £90 ex VAT. They are also quite difficult to source, we have 80 on backorder currently.
Your mileage will vary with these adapters as they are not officially supported. I have witnessed some issues when trying to play purchased iTunes videos through the adapter.
Post a photo of the inputs of your projector if you're not sure if it has HDMI.
