Is there any application that can stream content of a screen, or application window to Apple TV? I would like something that works in similar fashion as AirFoil, but for captured screen content instead of sound.

What I am looking for is a way to skip to have projector and cables in our conference room. Instead of going with a projector and having to mount it to the ceiling and have long cables, I would go with a big TV, Apple TV and than simply stream video from a Mac laptop to Apple TV.

Check out Erica Sadun's AirFlick, part of her free AirPlay utilities package. You may have to do some fooling around to get it to send the screen instead of a file, but that should actually be doable with VLC, if she hasn't already built it in.

Ability to stream content of your screen to Apple TV is coming in Mountain Lion.
