5 ways to project images from our phones directly onto our TV screens
In our daily life, we often encounter some scenes that make us want to share the photos, videos, documents and other contents in the mobile phone with friends around us. But experientially, the “small screen” of the phone is anything but satisfying. I’m sure many of you are wondering, is there some way to project the picture from our phone directly onto our TV screen?
Today I’m going to show you five ways that you can use your mobile screen to your advantage, which will definitely help you in your work life.
● The iPhone screen method
For iPhone users, there are two common ways to present the screen:
Using AirPlay for wireless projection is obviously the most convenient. To ensure that the phone and the monitor are on the same WiFi, we just need to call up the iPhone’s Control center, click the AirPlay option, and then select the device to connect to complete the screen projection.
It’s worth noting that in the upcoming iOS11, AirPlay will have a new, more accessible name — screen mirroring, which uses roughly the same method and location. However, wireless projection also has disadvantages, such as delays, poor stability and possible mismatches.
- Cable connection
So, if you need a more stable projection, try wired. However, compared with wireless projection screen, the cost of wired projection screen may be higher, need to buy a separate transfer cable.
● Android Phone
Like the iPhone, Android phones have two screen-projection options.
- Wireless display
Android phones also support wireless projection function, generally speaking, no matter which brand of mobile phone, in order to ensure that the phone and the display in the same WiFi conditions, in the Settings – network and connection, click more connection, you can see the wireless display options, and then click to match.
2.MHL wired connection
Of course, there are Android phones that support wired connectivity, and MHL Wired connectivity is actually the name of the HDMI phone version, but since Android 4.4, support for this feature has become increasingly rare, and it’s hard to even find a phone that supports MHL projection.
● Software projection screen
Of course, in addition to using the built-in screen projection and wired screen projection of the mobile phone system, we can also choose to use some software to achieve the screen projection function, such as Bijie screen projection. Many video software also support the screen projection function, which can be realized by clicking the screen projection button on the playing page.
