Hey, I'm Skylar. If you want to connect your iPad to a plasma TV, you've got pretty much two options. If you've got an iPad two or the new iPad, you can connect using Apple TV and using that, you can stream wirelessly. If you've got the original iPad, iPad two or the new iPad, or iPhone or iPod Touch, you can use the digital AV adapter. It looks like this, I'll show you in the Apple Store. This is the digital AV adapter, at the top, you see the three pin connector and then, HDMI and another 30 pin connector. That's how that you can charge your iPad at the same time you're using it to show content on a screen. So, again, HDMI, 30 pin. So, you run your HDMI cable out from this port, to the back of your television. The other option is Apple TV, which is really handy. What this does, is act as a wireless receiver for your television set. And that allows you to beam things wirelessly from your iPad to your television, using Apple's technology called AirPlay. Once you get ti installed, it's really seamless and you can also run optical audio out to a high quality head unit or receiver. That can be wired out to all the speakers in your house. So, as far as simplicity goes, that is definitely it. Thanks for watching, I'm Skylar.
