Microsoft is preparing a rival Chromecast
Microsoft is developing a dongle to transfer the image from your smartphone on a TV. The new device has already been certified by the Federal communications Commission (FCC) of the United States.
Dongle HD-10 supports Miracast and with his help, users of smartphones with Windows Phone will be able to transfer the image from the screens of their mobile devices to televisions and computer monitors. For this purpose, you will use the Project My Screen feature that appeared in version 8.1 of the mobile platform Windows Phone. Many TVs and monitors do not support Miracast but new device from Microsoft will eliminate this disadvantage.
The Miracast standard was developed based on wireless technology Wi-Fi Direct. For data transmission requires only two compatible devices – receiver and transmitter, without intermediation of the router.
HD-10 works in the frequency range of 2.4 GHz and has a HDMI and USB. There is no information about when the device will hit the market and at what price. Similar Asus dongle sells for $ 80.
