Wireless Display Standard
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. Easy to use, multi-vendor Wireless display has arrived.
Miracast is a ground-breaking 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.

What are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast Devices?
Miracast is an interoperability test program for products that provide seamless wireless display of content, including graphical, video and audio content, across Wi-Fi devices—anywhere, at any time, without cables or even a connection to a Wi-Fi network. Equipment that passes the testing is designated “Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast.”
Must both the content source and display be Miracast devices?
To enjoy Miracast, both the display and the source devices must be certified for Miracast. Miracast may be used on devices without embedded Wi-Fi through the use of a Miracast certified adapter that supports an interface such as High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) or Universal Serial Bus (USB).
