AirPlay 2 Gives Your Distributed Audio System a Major Boost
Simplify Your Home Entertainment Today
Make enjoying a movie or listening to your favorite artist’s latest album easier than ever. With AirPlay 2, Apple lets you link up all your audio video products and have them stream to one another to optimize your distributed audio and video system.
You can stream dance party jams or melodic background tunes to any room in your New York City home for you and your family to experience on any occasion. In this blog, we’ll dive into how AirPlay simplifies everything about your home entertainment. Find out more by reading on below.
What is AirPlay Exactly?
AirPlay makes it a breeze to bridge together all the devices and equipment that make up your entertainment system and whole home audio and video solutions. Its concept is made up of both a sender and a receiver component that are connected and communicate through your smart home network.
You can take your sender, such as a smartphone or tablet, and choose a receiver, which could be a stereo system or wireless Sonos speakers. AirPlay 2 takes this idea to the next level and adds smart TVs and multi-room audio into the mix.
Now you can press the AirPlay app and stream your latest TV show binge for everyone in the room to watch. AirPlay 2 also features device mirroring, giving you the option to bring the media appearing on your phone onto a different smart device, such as your MacBook or Apple TV.
AirPlay 2 Streamlines Your Multi-Room Audio
AirPlay not only lets you send music and media from one smart device to another, but you can also send tunes to multiple speakers at once. These speakers have to be able to support AirPlay, such as your iOS devices or the HomePod. You get to select which speakers you send the music to and at what volume – all in crystal-clear, high-end quality.
If you choose to stream music from Apple Music, you have the ability to play different songs in different rooms. It’s as easy as asking Siri to play one song in the bedroom and another on the basement’s speakers.
Another top-notch feature is that you won’t have to disconnect your smartphone in order to let another user add songs to a party playlist. Other Apple Music users can send their preferred song choice to the original source smartphone to place it on the lineup.
While AirPlay relies heavily on other Apple products for many of its features, other high-fidelity speakers are now supporting it such as Sonos, Bang and Olufsen, and Dynaudio.
This AV solution lets you merge all your devices together to create a cohesive and centralized audio system, perfect for playing music at a dance party or listening to classical pieces and podcasts while going about your day-to-day tasks. Manage AirPlay with just one tap through the app; it’s that easy to have your entire music library right at your fingertips.
