Specifications

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.
