What Is Screen Mirroring?
Screen mirroring is a technology that allows the display of one device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or computer, to be replicated or mirrored on another display, typically a larger one like a TV or monitor. This enables users to share content, such as videos, photos, presentations, or applications, from their device onto a larger screen, providing a more immersive and collaborative viewing experience.
What kinds of screen mirroring are there?
Wireless Screen Mirroring:
Many devices support wireless screen mirroring protocols such as Miracast (for Android devices), AirPlay (for Apple devices), and Google Cast. These technologies allow users to establish a connection between their mobile device and a compatible display without the need for cables.
In some cases, users may opt for a wired connection to mirror their screen. This often involves using an HDMI or USB cable to connect the device to the display. Some devices may require adapters to facilitate the physical connection.
Smart TV or Display Integration:
Some smart TVs come equipped with built-in screen mirroring capabilities. Users can connect their compatible devices to the same Wi-Fi network as the smart TV and initiate screen mirroring directly from their device.
