Breaking News : Microsoft Launches Refreshed Chromecast-Like Wireless Display Adapter
#1
Advertisement
Microsoft on Wednesday unveiled an upgraded version of its Wireless Display Adapter, its Chromecast -like dongle that allows people to mirror what's on their phones, tablets, or laptops onto their television screens.
Priced at $49.95 (approximately Rs. 3,500), the refreshed Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter is now up for pre-orders via the company's online store in Canada and the US. The device will go on sale starting March 1. The company added that the Wireless Display Adapter will be also available via Best Buy and Amazon while will be introduced in more markets soon.
Microsoft stresses that its next-generation of Wireless Display Adapter reduces latency and packs a new form factor. To recall, the first-generation Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter was unveiled back in 2014 and was priced at $60 (approximately Rs. 4,200). One of the biggest disadvantages of the first-generation Wireless Display Adapter was it only supported Windows-powered devices. The new Wireless Display Adapter, on the other hand, allows people to mirror from Miracast-enabled phones, tablets, and laptops, including the Surface lineup. This includes Android devices, but not very many have support for the Miracast wireless display protocol. The adapter also supports Intel's Wi-Di wireless display protocol.
Users can plug the USB and HDMI from Wireless Display Adapter into their HDTV or monitor, connect, and then mirror or extend their screen. The company notes that the adapter delivers a connection up to a 23-foot range. The device will come in dark titanium colour and weigh approximately 33 grams. It measures 103.5x22x11mm.
Announcing the Wireless Display Adapter, Chris Smellie, Product Marketing Manager said, "We heard great feedback about the device, most notably from students and mobile professionals, due to the size, ease of use for setup, and the fact there was no internet required for it to work."
