There are two ways to configure an Apple TV for use with Ditto. You can use the Ditto configuration utility or add the Apple TV manually.

Use the Ditto Configuration Utility

We recommend using the simple Ditto configuration tool to add an Apple TV to your Ditto account.

Manually create a room with an Apple TV

Note

If you choose to manually add an Apple TV through your Ditto account portal, you will need the IP address and the MAC address. This information can be found on the Apple TV "About" screen.

Step 1 - Gather Apple TV network Information

To locate the IP address and MAC address for your Apple TV, choose Settings -> General -> About.

The IP address and MAC address will be listed on this screen. Note, Apple TV refers to the MAC address as "Wi-Fi Address" or "Ethernet Address."

We recommend setting a static IP address for your device to prevent unwanted IP address changes. 

Step 2

Log in to your Ditto account and navigate to the Rooms section.

Step 3

Click the Add a Room button.

Step 4

  1. Enter the name of the room you're in. For instance, "Upstairs Conference Room C" 
  2. Enter a name for the display like "Apple TV" or "Conference Display"
  3. Set the connection type to AirPlay
  4. Enter the room information you gathered in step 1
  5. Save the room

Step 5

You're ready to connect to the room or create connection instructions for your users!
