Nvidia is a member of the WiFi Alliance, an independent and collaborative forum for certification of wireless devices. The company is working on ways to enable sharing of photos and streaming HD quality videos from the Tegra based smartphones and tablets to the Miracast certified wireless displays.
The WiFi Alliance had announced announced to launch a WiFi Certified Miracast certification program for the wireless devices to support display applications. So basically, the future breed of WiFi display and devices will get a new certification for wireless display standard dubbed as Miracast for streaming the high quality audio-video from mobile devices. The objective over here is to eliminate the need of the HDMI or micro HDMI cables for connecting mobile devices to a HD display.
The new Miracast wireless display protocol will be opened and official certification by WiFi Alliance will commence within few months from now.
Nvidia is currently working on enabling the multimedia capabilities on the Tegra based devices for streaming photos and videos to the certified Miracast wireless display devices. Besides, the company is also working to turn mobiles and tablets into a touchscreen based joystick for playing games on a bigger HD display. All that will be achieved on Tegra based devices with the Miracast certified wireless displays.
Apparently, the WiFi certified Miracast is yet another alternative for wirelessly streaming videos, photos and playing games by connecting a mobile computing device to a certified display. The Tegra based devices are already in the market and we can expect the Miracast supporting displays, receivers and other devices by the end of this year.
