Can Apple TV be hooked up to a computer that projects to a smartboard

I have a classroom computer that is hooked up to my smart board with a projector, rather than a computer monitor. The pc is hooked up directly to the smartboard. I would like to mirror my ipad and/or laptop onto the smartboard. I was told an adapter would work, but I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to do this. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  • You can use a lightning to vga conector to connect ipad to your smartboard. (newer ipads-older would use the older connector from the ipad to the vga). It is inelegant the cord is short, very short and you must disconnect your computer/projector from the Smartboard to hook up the ipad.

    I am hoping that apple TV could be involved in a more elegant set up.
