Over Wifi Direct… My favorite streaming device.
Roku has teamed up with Broadcom to bring Miracast video mirroring to its video streaming devices. The technology will allow consumers to stream video and mirror a device’s desktop directly from their laptop or mobile phone to a Roku device, much in the same way AirPlay allows the mirroring of content from iOS devices on an Apple TV.
Broadcom first hinted at a cooperation with Roku at CES, was highlighted the partnership at Mobile World Congress. Roku has been using Broadcom chips for some time, and in the past IT closely collaborated with the chip maker on the launch of its second-generation hardware, so it makes a lot of sense for Roku to add support for Broadcom’s Miracast as well.
Check out the video below for a demo of Miracast:
