NVIDIA Embracing Miracast Audio / Video Wireless Streaming Protocol
The standard itself will be an open one, so any mobile device or display manufacturer can implement the technology. That means any Miracast-certified device can instantly stream to any Miracast-enabled display. The good news is that NVIDIA is "embracing" Miracast. According to the company: "We’re working hard to enable features like sharing photos and streaming HD movies onto HDTVs. But, we won’t stop there.
At the heart of every Tegra chip is a high-performance CPU and GPU, which means you can use Tegra to play amazing games on the big screen. We’re not just talking about flinging Angry Birds but racing a super-charged jet ski in the game Riptide THD and playing heart-pounding first-person shooter games like Shadowgun THD. You can even take mobile gaming to the next level by pairing a Tegra device with a console controller for the ultimate wireless display experience.
We’re actively working with our OEM partners and Miracast receiver vendors to bring this technology to market. Once the Wi-Fi Alliance ratifies the Miracast spec, we’ll provide more updates."
Now that NVIDIA has done the deed, one has to wonder how far ARM and Qualcomm are from joining as well.
