Miracast is a wireless technology that projects the image from your computer screen onto another monitor, TV screen, projector, or streaming media player that also supports Miracast. You can use this to share what you’re doing on your computer, present a slide show, or even play your favorite game on a larger screen.
Use the information in this document to connect your Miracast devices.
