Apple TV to Smartboard

What is actually required to connect an AppleTV to a smartboard in order to mirror Ipads ? I gather I would need a HDMI to VGA converter box is that correct ?

yes... but make sure you get an active adapter not passive!

Yes that's correct you need a box (active, as William told you). But to be more specific: there is no such thing as a passive adapter between HDMI and VGA, because HDMI is digital technology and VGA is analogical technology, so it's just not enough to reorganise the pins, it must be a logical part which can be able to convert signals.

Best regards!

Depending on the model of Apple TV you may need an HDMI adapter with an audio output if you want sound as well as picture.

Thanks guys. I gather that Apple TV cannot be configured with proxy settings unless you use Apple Configurator, is that correct ?

You have a PC/Mac connected to the smart board right? Just run airserver

I've done this with iPads and a smartboard and used the smart software to screenshot and annotate, and webex to broadcast an iPad screen mirror to an online meeting.
