The group that brought Wi-Fi to the world will soon introduce their Miracast wireless display standard – enabling mobile devices to stream video and audio directly to large HDTVs without the need for cables or an existing wireless network.

The Wi-Fi Alliance expects to launch the Miracast wireless display certification program within the next few months. It will be an open standard, 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.

And NVIDIA, as a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, isn’t just supporting the new standard. We’re  embracing it.

We’re bringing the outstanding multimedia capabilities of Tegra to wireless displays. 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.

In the meantime, take a look at the video below about how Tegra can enhance the Miracast wireless display experience. For even more technical detail, feel free to read the Miracast wireless display whitepaper (PDF 216 KB).

    Last Time I checked Shadowgun was a Third-Person Shooter :P

    Hi Dilawer. You’re totally right! Shadowgun is technically a third-person shooter, but I felt that more folks would be familiar with the “first-person shooter” terminology. Thanks for clarifying!

     Hi,
    I’ve bought a Transformer Pad (TF300T) last month equiped by a Nvidia Tegra 3, and I would like to know if I could use Miracast with my tablet in the next month.

    Have a good day !!

    yeah, would be interesting if this feature will also be published on already released handhelds.

    Hi Rob,
    Thanks for the message. Unfortunately, I can’t comment on what our customer’s product plans are. However, I can say that the Miracast specification is scheduled to lock down at the end of August so it’s possible to start seeing Miracast enabled products within a few months.
    Hope you’re enjoying your Transformer Pad!

    Hi Max,
    There are a lot of considerations a mobile device manufacturer must review before they decide if or when or what they will include in a device update. It will be interesting to see who will bring Miracast to a device that is already available.

  • warcaster

    Will this be available for devices launching this fall? (say..Nexus devices?)

  • Patrick Flynn

    Any chance there’ll be an add-on card for PCs so that I don’t have to replace my brand spanking new 6800?

  • surethom

    Lets hope this is in All new highend Android tablets that are released in 2013.

  • Michael Panzer

    I’ve seen the first Miracast set top box from Netgear (PTV3000) and now the question is:

    Does Miracast has to be hardware(firmware or hardware) enabled or would be an app enough on a tegra 3 device?

    Hello, do you think, we can have WiFi monitor (PC) in hand and my CPU in my storeroom ….I mean can we connect wireless monitor with CPU as well?
