I need to connect the display of my MacBook Pro to my Dell 22N700 (22 inch) monitor, wirelessly. Currently I use an HDMI cable. Please suggest. It would be great if that device works with Windows 10 as well.

  • You're not goign to have any luck for a dual-OS solution. You're in the same boat as somebody looking for a wireless projector, other than the fact that you'd need to add an external WiDi/Miracast adapter for the Windows half (instead of having it built in to the device). – T.J.L.

  • @T.J.L. Ok, I can work without Windows compatibility. But what about Mac and Dell. – simplfuzz Apr 28 '16 at 12:34

You can stream your display to your monitor connected to Apple TV (through HDMI) using AirPlay for Apple devices with OS X 10.8 or newer. Or you can use AirParrot 2 software to connect it to your older Mac or Windows PC.


Requirements:

  1. According to this apple site if your MacBook Pro is from early 2011 or newer. You will need only Apple TV media player 2nd generation or newer. Here is really good tutorial how to connect your Mac to Apple TV.
  2. If your MacBook Pro is older than early 2011 or you need mirroring from Windows PC you will also need AirParrot 2 software it costs $13.

The only way you get wireless display capability from an Apple device is via AirPlay, which requires a 2nd Generation or later Apple TV and OSX 10.8 or later. The actual connection between the Apple TV and the output device will be HDMI. Who makes the display doesn't matter.
