TapMedia Publishing has released a new app that allows users of camera-equipped iOS devices to send live images to their Apple TV via AirPlay. Camera for Apple TV provides a live preview of the camera view and a button to send the output to an AirPlay device. Possibly due to limitations in iOS and AirPlay, the application is only able to display a series of static images on the Apple TV refreshed at a frame rate of approximately 5fps rather than a full-motion real-time video feed. Camera for Apple TV is available from the App Store for $2 and requires an iPhone, fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad 2 running iOS 4.3 or later and a second-generation Apple TV running Apple TV Software 4.2 or later.
