Miracast™ is a peer-to-peer wireless screencast standard created by the Wi-Fi Alliance™ as a standard for wirelessly streaming content from a mobile device to an HDTV. Because Miracast uses a peer-to-peer connection, it will not interfere with devices on an existing wireless network. This technology allows the exact same image from the mobile device to be displayed on the HDTV and is not limited to specific applications. This allows apps, video clips, web pages, and pictures to be wirelessly streamed from a mobile device to the HDTV. In order to take advantage of this technology you must have a mobile device—such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop—which is Miracast-enabled, and an HDTV which is capable of receiving Miracast signals. Miracast capabilities may be added to existing devices by using a Miracast transmitter or receiver.
Adding the Wireless A/V Receiver adds Miracast* capability to any HDTV which will accept an HDMI input.
Android devices which use the 4.1.2 and later operating systems and Windows devices which use the Windows 8.1 operating system support Miracast. Additionally, the Wi-Fi Alliance maintains a list of Miracast Certified Source Devices.
