WHAT IS AIRPLAY
AirPlay is a proprietary protocol stack developed by Apple Inc. that allows wireless streaming between devices of audio, video, device screens, and photos, together with related metadata. Originally implemented only in Apple's software and devices, it was called AirTunes and used for audio only. AirPlay receiver devices include AirPort Express, Apple TV, and third party speakers such as Libratone, Bose, Yamaha, Philips, Marantz, Bowers & Wilkins, Pioneer, Sony, and Denon.
