Apple TV offers a “Conference Mode”. It is helpful in business or school situations and gives people in the room some hints how to stream content to the Apple TV (via AirPlay).
How to use the Conference Mode of your Apple TV
Enable the Conference Mode
Go to “Settings > AirPlay > Conference Room Display” and turn it on.
On-Screen Instructions for people in the room
After that, in the screensaver mode, the Apple TV shows some On-Screen Instructions how to connect.
- If your Apple TV is connected with an ethernet cable, it will just show “Connect to Wi-Fi Network”. Otherwise, using an Wi-Fi Connection, it shows the correct name (SSID) of your Wi-Fi.
- The second information is the name of the Apple TV (useful if there are more than one in the Network)
- If you like, you can add some more information in a custom text field (“custom-message” in the screenshot). For example, where to get the Wi-Fi password.
It’s also possible to choose a custom background picture.
