[prMac.com] Utrecht, Netherlands – Tupil today released version 2.0 of their Mac app Beamer. The update brings a completely redesigned user interface and much requested new features, such as playlists and better controls. Beamer makes it possible to stream any movie file from your Mac directly to Apple TV using AirPlay. Beamer accepts all common formats, codecs and resolutions. Just open any movie file and press play.
Unlike Screen Mirroring, Beamer is specifically optimized for video playback at the highest quality and it supports 5.1 surround sound. The Apple TV remote can be used to pause, fast-forward and rewind.
What’s new in version 2.0:
* Completely redesigned user interface
* Use playlists to AirPlay many movie files in a row
* Start where you left off, because Beamer remembered playback position
* It works with even more movie files: supports DVD & BluRay subtitles, improved support for high bit-rate video
* Visual feedback while fast-forwarding / rewinding
Beamer 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.9 and an Apple TV supporting AirPlay (2nd generation or newer).

A limited free trial of Beamer 2, which can be unlocked with an in-app purchase, is available for download now. Beamer licenses for $15 (USD). Upgrade pricing is available for Beamer 1 license owners. Customers who purchased since October 2013 are eligible for a free upgrade.Beamer 2.0
