We're looking at using APPLE TV to stream from windows PCs on our network through a projector.
At the moment we've got the infrastructure configured using Clear Pass with our APPLE TV added into it (AirPlay). All working fine when using an iPad, and an iPhone. However, we're having an issue with getting a windows PC to access the projector.
The only way around this is to install a 3rd party software such as AirParrot giving us the option to mirror through to APPLE TV.
My question is whether there are any Aruba/AirPlay approved projectors that can be used to be added to Clear Pass in order to stream into the projector directly as you would by using AirPlay for mirror, or AirPrint?

Thank you for the quick reply.
I have never used Chromecast before. Would there be an issue with security, and access to the internet?
Planning to use this on a corporate environment.
I was thinking if there is a similar solution to access the projector directly as you would with an Apple TV, and AirPrint.
By the sounds of it, it looks like AirParrot or a similar 3rd party software is the most suitable solution.

same security implications an Apple TV or other consumer streaming device.
Epson projectors have a mirroring client but it is not very reliable (but
then again, neither is the Apple TV).

I've used the Epson (EasyMP Network Projection) software and it wasn't bad actually. Only issue is that it uses the WIFI adapter to access the projector which means that users don't have access to the internet since the WIFI is already being used.
A way around this would be to use wired which is not straight forward.
The goal is to make this as easy and zero user interaction as possible.
Many thanks for your input and suggestions.
