Apple Airplay competitor Miracast to be adopted by the LG Optimus G and Samsung Galaxy S III

A new era in streaming between devices may be upon us. Miracast is similar to DLNA and Apple’s Airplay in that it allows a person to stream a video or other images straight from a phone or tablet to a TV or projector. Miracast differs itself by giving the option to stream without needing WiFi because it can utilize WiFi direct. It can also automatically negotiating the best audio and video resolution.

The first phones with Mircast certification will be the LG Optimus G and the Samsung Galaxy III with more to come shortly. So far the only TV with certification is the Samsung Echo-P Series TV. You can use the Miracast feature with any WiDi-enabled displays. Hit the break for a Mircast video.
