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.

 

Casting From Chrome Browser

You can cast from Chrome browser to any large screen monitor.

  • Click on "Cast" in Chrome browser
  • Select the source to cast (i.e. Cast Tab/Cast Desktop)
  • Select the destination (i.e. Living room TV, Bed room TV)
  • The content of the browser will be cast to the large screen monitor

 

 

Screen Mirroring

The screen mirroring feature allows you to wirelessly mirror your mobile device or PC on to your TV's screen.  By using this feature you can use your big screen television to display your content stored on your mobile device or PC instead of your device's smaller screen.
