Ipad sharing question

Hi, I am trying to figure out a way to mirror my iPad to my HDMI Samsung TV.  I can't even figure out what version of the iPad I have.  Don't see it anywhere.  The model number is MF534LL/A and the Samsung TV IS UN55HU6840F.  In all my research I find that everyone seems to have propitiatory ways of communicating with different devices such as Apple to Apple.  Samsung seems to have align themselves with Galaxy products (maybe that is their own brand?)

Seems to me that there should be an HDMI Airplay (Apple software) adapter that would act like an Airplay receiver that you could connect to the Samsung TV and mirror what is on the iPad.  Is there such a thing?

You have an iPad Air.

You have the new, smaller adapter connector.

I think this is what you are looking for.

I read the Best Buy reviews and they all look great but no mention of Samsung TV.  I'm going to go get one and try it out.  I'll let u know.

See if they'll let you try it in the store.

Unfortunately, I did not mention that I wanted to do this wilessly.  This cable requires that the iPad be connected to the TV.  Sorry about that.
You need to buy an AppleTV. See this thread:


The AppleTV will connect to your Samsung TV by HDMI and your iPad will connect to the AppleTV wirelessly. You can then mirror the iPad (or any recent Mac for that matter) to the Samsung wirelessly using Airplay.
