Apple TV (beta)

No need to introduce this little black box with the infamous bitten apple logo. Get rid of the annoying IR bug and use this IP driver for Control4 to upgrade your customers’ systems for the ultimate experience.

Apple TV has found its way into many homes to stream movies and music from iTunes, Netflix, Hulu and other services. It is also a favorite board room addition to effortlessly share screens of iPhones & iPads.

Please note: This is a time-limited beta version for dealer testing. Licence keys for purchase will be available soon.
