    Yes. I just tried it and it will display what you're recording right on your TV, via AirPlay Mirroring. Keep in mind AirPlay Mirroring will only work with an iPhone 4S or an iPad 2.

    Cool that's what I'll need, is there a way to use more than one devise and split the display. We're trying to display on the projector life event during new years. Different games etc., if I can display only one that's cool but multiple would be better.

    That, I don't know. As you can see in my signature, I no longer own an iPad, so I have no way of testing that out. Hopefully someone with both devices can see if a split screen is available, although I doubt it because AirPlay appears to connect to one device at a time only. But I could be wrong, you never know.

    EDIT: didn't read what you wanted to do properly...

    It can, but the video is only coming directly from one device -- the iPad 2, which hosts all of the other devices and renders video for all of them. For now, AirPlay can only accept one incoming stream at once.

    AirPlay mirroring will mirror the iPhone's screen, so could project what is displayed by the camera app, but you'll have the camera button on screen too which is a bit crap. Ideally there would be an app on the App Store which fills the display with input from the camera...

    Airplay mirroring just display's what's on the device's display, and that's the only way to get video out (other that movie streaming, which obviously isn't useful).
