I want to prevent the user from being able to stream to remote speakers with any client on their laptop. Is there a way to globally disable AirPlay on a Mac OS X (10.6 or 10.7) system?

By disabling you mean you want to prevent any user from selecting a remote speaker in iTunes? –  patrix Jun 13 '12 at 15:41

Please don't post the same question on different SE sites. –  vcsjones Jun 13 '12 at 16:09
    
AirPlay is part of Bonjour, which you probably don't want to disable. –  vcsjones Jun 13 '12 at 16:11

It appears you can use managed preferences (MCX) to disableAppleTV:

WGM - com.apple.iTunes

..but that will only affect iTunes, and I don't have an AppleTV on hand to test.

It has been a while since I set up Airplay, with Airport express, Airport extreme, and Apple TV, my airplay is password protected. Below is a link to an apple article about setting up airplay using Airport utility.

Just pointing someone generally to a support article is not really helping.A quote of the part relevant to the question would improve your answer. –  Bart Arondson Jan 19 at 13:23
