About the Apple TV Connection Strength

I have a new iMac (just bought in Aug 2013) in my study room and my SONY TV in my sitting room; I am thinking to buy an Apple TV to connect the iMac and the SONY TV as the screen (I guess this should work, right?)

After all, I will scream video from my iMac to the screen of the SONY TV for movies, youtube, video clips, etc. My question is: I have a cement wall between my study room and sitting room (is not a very wide open area), will this affect the screaming connectivity between the iMac and SONY TV??? What is the connectivity methodology / theory behind this technology? Thanks.

    You mean streaming and not screaming video to your AppleTV. ;-)

    It is fairly odd to find cement and not plaster walls between rooms in the typical home. Cement will degrade the signal strength especially when it contains a wire mesh to prevent cracking. You can try, and that fails you may need to resort to using an Ethernet cable between these devices.
