    New Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter coming soon


    Back in 2014, we launched a brand-new accessory that allowed people to project anything from a Miracast®-enabled tablet, laptop, or smartphone onto a big screen, wirelessly. The Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter didn’t rely on specific apps to display content – any and all screen images went right to an HDTV or monitor thanks to Miracast technology.

    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. Road warriors have been using the device to make mobile work stations at hotel rooms without being hunched over a desk, and students found it useful for streaming movies to a TV directly from the couch. Additionally, businesses are plugging their Wireless Display Adapters into their overhead projectors; eliminating the need for those multiple cords, wires, and adapters we all scramble for in order to present in a conference room.



    So today, we are announcing the next generation of Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter. It brings the best features and functionality of the first generation while reducing the latency and packing it into a new form factor. It’s still just as easy to setup and use and also allows people to mirror or extend their screen from Miracast-enabled Windows 10 phones, tablets and laptops, including the Surface lineup.



    You can pre-order the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter now in the U.S. and Canada, and it will be available on March 1, 2016, for the estimated retail price of $49.95 at Microsoft Store, Best Buy and Amazon – it will be coming to future markets soon. Please visit our Microsoft Accessories website for additional information.

    Adding to that, instead of spending $50, a HDMI to TV cable will do the same job. Albeit, not wireless.
    That said, if one really wants it .................. knock yourself out.

    How does it work? All I see is a cable with HDMI on one end and USB on the other.

    The USB connector goes to the power adaptor which plugs to the wall, just like you are charging a smartphone or tablet.
    The other one plugs to the TV's HDMI slot.
    Then the process of setting up with the PC, I guess.

    That's just my guess based on using a Chromecast.
