AirPlay Mirroring has been available for quite some time now, linking iOS devices to your Apple TV, making photos, videos and even gaming possible on the big screen. For many it was an exciting development, but not because of what it was, but what it indicated for the future. After all, while Plants vs. Zombies on your television sounds cool, it lacks the same zest as playing a large map of Civilization V on your television. With Mountain Lion, Apple have included OS X mirroring in AirPlay, bringing us one step closer to the sort of seamless gaming experience we’d want.
We decided to test this new functionality the other day and want to report the results for those interested in the possibilities of this new feature. We’ll explain how to set it up and what our results were.
