Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™

Consumers have embraced multimedia content on their devices. From video streaming to photo sharing to a world of apps, smartphones, tablets, and TVs are connecting and keeping us entertained. However, the content is often trapped on a single device, limiting the ability to view your entertainment where you want.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ is a groundbreaking solution for seamlessly displaying video between devices, without cables or a network connection. Users can do things like view pictures from a smartphone on a big screen television, share a laptop screen with the conference room projector in real-time, and watch live programs from a home cable box on a tablet. Miracast connections are formed using Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Direct™, so access to a Wi-Fi® network is not needed – the ability to connect is inside Miracast-certified devices.

Miracast is an industry-wide solution, so the technology works well across devices, regardless of brand. Connections are easy to set up and use since the devices choose the appropriate settings automatically. Miracast supports premium content—like Blu-ray feature films, live television shows and sports, or any other copy-protected premium content—allowing you to watch what you want, where you want.
