WiDi or Wireless Display is a new technology developed by Intel that connects portable devices to smart TVs wirelessly. It is available on Smart TVs manufactured by LG, Samsung, and Toshiba. Intel also offers WiDi adapters for existing HDTVs and projectors. With this functionality, it is easier to share content for both entertainment and business applications. Here are five benefits of wireless display technology.
Share Content Between Portable Devices and TV
WiDi enabled laptops, tablets, and smartphones can send movies, pictures, music, and other files directly to a TV featuring WiDi or a TV with a WiDi adapter. This is great for sharing content stored on these devices with other people in the room via the big screen TV. Watch movies together or make a presentation with WiDi. It is especially useful for streaming protected content such as Blu-ray movies.
Get High Quality Picture and Sound on a Large Screen
WiDi is a reliable connection that streams excellent video and audio. The connection doesn't fade or drop out, and there is low screen mirroring latency; the image on the portable device is what you'll see on the television screen. It supports 1080p resolution and high quality digital audio.
Convenient Dual Screen Multi-Tasking
With WiDi, you can do more than one thing on a portable device by sending one of the tasks to a TV. This is especially useful for smartphones. Stream a movie stored on the smartphone to the TV, and open email on the smartphone. It's also convenient when you want to talk to friends on the smartphone, while watching a movie stored on the smartphone on the TV.
Conduct Presentations Securely and Privately
WiDi allows for great presentations without the hassle of complicated audio and visual equipment. Simply connect your laptop to the projector using a WiDi connection, and you'll be able to easily stream the presentation onto the large screen, while conducting the presentation on your familiar laptop.
