How does Miracast cast the screen?

Miracast, formerly known as Wi-Fi Play, is a widely supported industry standard developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Today, more than 1,000 products are Miracast certified, including more than 200 “source” devices (which provide the source of content) and more than 800 “receive” devices (which ultimately play content). It is the largest user base among the three mainstream screen projection protocols (Miracast, Airplay, DLNA).

As wireless media sharing grows in popularity, Miracast is ready for mass adoption. The initial Miracast screen projection must be in the same LAN environment, but the Miracast protocol screen projection, as long as within a certain range, it can be matched – just like Bluetooth, a device is turned on, and the rest of the devices can be searched around.

If you’re in a meeting and want to share a file from your smartphone. Ideally, you want to play the files through the HDTV in the room. Do you need to plug in a cable or transfer photos to an SD card or USB flash drive before uploading them to your TV?

No need! Through the Miracast protocol, our “wireless projection” for Android phones, you can share smartphone screen images, videos and photos directly on your TV over WIFI, without the need for cumbersome cables or storage devices.
