    Hi,

    we got a huge (70"+ probably) TV for a boardroom recently.

    Our team also has a 2016 m7 MacBook.

    Is there a way to get 4k video to that TV from the MacBook without a cable?

    We're mostly talking about presentations etc.

    AFAIK, the 2016 MB should be able to output 4K to a 4k display.


    Also, is there a way to switch an Apple TV into a mode where you never see the iTunes store?
    We've been to a client who uses an Apple TV with a MacBookPro for presentations and when it lost the connection, it would display the iTunes store.
    We have no need for the iTunes store at work...

    I don't even have a TV, much less an Apple TV.

    Yes, you can set the ATV to conference room mode. See:

    No 4K output with the current model, but in my experience 1080p is just fine for Powerpoint presentations and the like even on large screens. It's very convenient if most of the users have Macs (it's a shame that there is no Airplay client for Windows, since that is still much more common in corporate environments). Much easier than screwing around with cables and adpaters.

    Maybe that's the reason why there's no 4k ATV.
    You can't airplay it as of right now.
    I don't care about the Windows laptops. They can use DLNA or whatever.
    There's a reason why I suggested that laptop for our team.


    Thanks for the links.
