Support for Mirroring & Casting

 

Introduction

Through the casting screen /mirroring feature you can easily share the content of your mobile device or PC (Laptop, Desktop) on a big TV screen via WiFi. There is a difference between “Casting” and “Mirroring”. In casting only, the video player of your mobile device or PC is shown on the TV screen whereas in mirroring, the entire screen of your mobile device or PC is shown on the TV screen as it is(Just like a mirror image of your device screen). We support casting/mirroring for both Chromecast and Apple TV(Airplay).

 

Casting Screen

When you cast, you are sending content from your mobile device or PC to your big screen television. For instance, your mobile phones YouTube client may allow you cast to the big screen TV. When casting, usually the content is not visible on the device (Mobile device or PC) doing the casting.
