Can I get an App or otherwise modify an ARM-based Windows 8 Windows RT system to be able to mirror it's screen via AirPlay to AppleTV or similar receiver?

I'm not looking for a Windows-equivalent functionality to mirror a screen; I specifically want to use the AirPlay protocol to do this to take advantage of existing AppleTV/AirServer setups located on the campus where I work. I know I could do this on a full Windows 8 x86 system using AirParrot or similar software, but I want to know if I can get something to work for ARM-based Windows RT.

Ouch! Come back in 6-12 months time! Then we will see who and what is supporting RT. ;) – Julian Knight Oct 24 '12 at 20:17
@JulianKnight that's my expectation exactly. Give it six months and hopefully someone has a solution by then. I don't have a tablet right now to play with, but if I did I would want to use AirPlay here. When we end up getting one or two down the road I want the answer for this ready and waiting. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 24 '12 at 20:22
Yep, it's going to be an interesting year for mobile devices. I still don't trust MS though and wonder just how long they will really support RT. – Julian Knight Oct 24 '12 at 20:40
I think RT is part of their long-term strategy, so don't second-guess them just yet. Even Zune took a long time to die. – user3463 Oct 24 '12 at 20:42
This would depend on if Apple releases a Metro UI iTunes application. – Ramhound Oct 24 '12 at 21:52

Is this what you're after? airserver.

I've also seen some open source software that can act as an airplay server. Someone reverse engineered the protocols. It was not complete last I looked.

No. It's going the wrong direction, and is not supported on RT. Looking for something more like AirParrot, but that's also WinRT capable. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 24 '12 at 20:11
