If you have seen Iron Man 2, you remember the scene where Tony Stark commandeers the televisions at the Senate hearing with his futuristic smartphone.
Well folks, that is actually possible today. With Actiontec's ScreenBeam Mini2 featuring Intel's WiDi (wireless display) technology, you can transmit HD video and even audio to any device with an HDMI port.
Here's our full review of Actiontec's ScreenBeam Mini2. Let's get started.
With WiDi v3.5, Intel introduced Miracast support, which basically uses direct Wi-Fi signals to communicate between devices, this added compatibility with a much larger pool of devices including many smartphones.
The ScreenBeam Mini2 supports v3.5+ including both Miracast and WiDi standards and comes in a small compact package akin to dongle. It is powered through a microUSB port and connects to any device through HDMI.
The packaging is solid and displays all the product highlights. The ScreenBeam Mini2 is a receiver, so you will need a transmitter such as a notebook with WiDi or a phone with Miracast.
The package comes with everything you might need including a long micro USB cable with AC adapter for power and a small HDMI extension cable for hard to reach HDMI ports.
