Want to share your iphone, ipad or ipod contents to a big screen? It is possible for us to display the iphone music, photos, videos, etc to a big screen, such as Apple TV, TV, projector. It is really a wonderful enjoyment for us to experience this, especially for the game fans, it is exciting to play the game on our iphone, but the game can be played on the big screen simultaneously. Display mirroring will be a handy feature for projecting android games from your tablet or smartphone onto the TV and other tasks which can take help of the larger display.
Wireless display technology is becoming more and more popular on Android* phones and tablets since Google started supporting Miracast on Android 4.2. Wireless display technology makes it easier for end users to expand their phone's LCD size. I think there is a good chance that ISVs will integrate the wireless display feature into their applications, especially games and video players.

What is Miracast
The Wi-Fi Alliance officially announced Wi-Fi* CERTIFIED Miracast on 2012.9.19 , Considered by many to be an “AirPlay killer,” Miracast operates on Android devices running the 4.2 (or later) OS. In a clever play on words, Miracast “mirrors” whatever's running on a given Android device and broadcasts it on the user's HDTV in 1080p, and in 5.1 surround sound. It is a groundbreaking solution for seamlessly displaying video between devices, without cables or a network connection. Users can do things like view pictures or videos from a smartphone on a big screen television, share a laptop screen with the conference room projector in real time, and watch live programs from a home cable box on a tablet. Miracast connections are formed using Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Direct*, so access to a Wi-Fi network is not needed—the ability to connect is inside Miracast certified devices.
Miracast also works over Wi-Fi Direct. To get it to operate, you'll need to have either a Miracast-compatible HDTV or a dongle that plugs into your HDTV. If there's a problem with Miracast, it's fragmentation. Major players like Samsung and LG support it, but Samsung calls it “AllShare,” while LG calls “Smart Share.” To make matters worse, a Samsung AllShare-capable smartphone often won't work with an LG Smart Share-capable HDTV. And that is too often the case with any of the Miracast-supported manufacturers.
