Today, we stare into the screens of many smart devices — mobile phones, tablets and laptop computers. Now, the biggest screen in our lives, the living room TV set, is seeing some upgrades that will give it a spot in a lineup of smart devices. Through a concept known as Wireless Display Mirroring, or “screencasting,” consumers will soon be realizing the benefits that come with “throwing” the content from a small handheld screen to a big, center-of-the-living-room display. The Wi-Fi-based technology that makes this happen — called Miracast™ — has the potential to change the way we think about the TV as a place for gaming, movies and more. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ is a groundbreaking 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.
