Microsoft today officially announced the Wireless Display Adapter. Just plug the USB and HDMI from the adapter into your HDTV or monitor, connect your device, and then mirror or extend your small screen onto the big one.
Stream movies, photos, or make a presentation to the whole group on the big screen. And do it all without wires from up to 20 feet away.
Project your ideas and collaborate in real time. Just plug the adapter into a conference room projector or monitor and the big screen becomes your collective workspace to share files, calendars, project plans, and more.
The adapter uses Miracast technology, so you’re not limited to certain apps or content streaming. You can even connect other Miracast-enabled devices to your TV or monitor.
Project presentations or documents to your workgroup without having to crowd around a small screen. Or, watch movies and TV shows that are on your phone or tablet on that big, beautiful HDTV in your living room. All without messy wires. It can be powered by the USB ports found on TVs and plugs into the HDMI port. It is compatible with Windows 8.1 devices including the Surface Pro line and Surface 2, and Android 4.2.1 or later. It works with Dell Venue Pro Windows tablet as well.
The Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter is available for preorder now in the U.S. and Canada and generally available in October for $59.95 (U.S.) online at the Microsoft Store and at Best Buy and Microsoft Retail Store locations.
