X-Mirage for Windows is released – Turn your Windows PC into AirPlay receiver

We are so honored to announce the release of Windows version of X-Mirage after 6 months of hard work. X-Mirage, running on Windows PC, allows you to use that PC as an AirPlay receiver to receive contents from iOS devices or Mac over a Wi-fi connection. In other words, you can stream video, audio, photo or mirror the screen of iOS devices or Mac to this Windows PC, and record iOS screen activities easily.

With X-Mirage, everything shown on the iOS screen is wirelessly streamed to your Windows PC in real time.
First, check that you have AirPlay Mirroring compatible devices. AirPlay Mirroring is available on iPad 2 or newer, iPhone 4S or newer, iPod Touch (5th generation), and iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer) with Mountain Lion.

Ensure the devices and Windows PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 1: Download X-Mirage for Windows and install it on your PC.

Step 2: Run X-Mirage. From the slideshow on the interface you can know how to turn on AirPlay Mirroring on your iOS devices and Mac.

Step 3: After connecting iOS device to your Window PC via AirPlay Mirroring, you will see the iOS device screen on the Windows PC; you can mirror multiple iOS devices screen to one Windows PC simultaneously.

As you can see there is a record button on the mirrored screen, click it and the recording of the mirrored screen (namely the iOS screen) starts, so it is a great choice to record your iOS device screen.

X-Mirage turns your Mac into an AirPlay receiver

Show off your iOS device’s wherever there is a Mac. All you need is an AirPlay Receiver for Mac – X-Mirage, which runs on your Mac and turns your Mac to the AirPlay Receiver to receive contents such as photos, videos, music, etc. to your Mac or mirror the display to the bigger Mac screen. So no matter whether you are an iOS app developer who needs to demonstrate app, or a teacher planning to display contents from iOS devices to all students, or just want to showcase your photos or game skills to friends, as long as you have a Mac at hand, all these are just a piece of cake.

All you need to do is download and install X-Mirage on your Mac, then tap AirPlay icon on your iOS devices, select  your Mac in the available AirPlay devices list and then turn on Mirroring(same to connect to Apple TV). Immediately you will find the iOS device screen is mirrored to the bigger Mac screen. Tap full screen to get best experience. Now do whatever you want on your iOS devices and ask your audience to stare at the Mac screen.

During  mirroring, click the Record icon on the mirrored screen to record anything conveniently.

Latest version of X-Mirage provides lossless quality audio-only airplay receiver option, which is useful when you just want to stream audio without video.

As a teacher, there must be times that you need to show content-related stuff to your class. You may also use laptop and projector to project to the pull-down screen. But you can’t leave the computer if you don’t have a wireless mouse or controller, yes?

Wanna work around the classroom while take over the computer, or display contents on your iPad? You need an AirPlay Receiver called X-Mirage – mirror display of  AirPlay devices (iPhone, iPad or iPod) to the screen of the laptop which is projected to the class, then iOS device’s screen is displayed to all students in the classroom.x-mirage-in-teachingBesides using X-Mirage to show your device’s screen to the students, you can also let students show their iPads on the projector since X-Mirage supports multiple devices simultaneously. You can set password that limits unwanted access to the Mac running X-Mirage. What a convenient way to display students’ work to others!

Display contents without bringing the iOS devices is impossible! Just record it in advance and play the .mp4 video when you need. With the one-click recording function of X-Mirage, what is mirrored to the Mac can be recorded, with sounds.
