LAS VEGAS--Actiontec today showed off at CES 2013 its first wireless display kit called ScreenBeam. This is a Miracast-certified kit that allows you to display a mobile device's screen onto a big-screen TV.
Actiontec say ScreenBeam is one of the first devices approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance for its Wi-Fi certified Miracast program. This ensures that it's compatible with other Miracast-enabled devices.
Actiontec offers ScreenBeam as both a standalone wireless display adapter and as a kit. A standalone adapter works with existing Miracast-certified devices, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, and devices running Android or WiDi 3.5 and higher. The kit also comes with a USB transmitter that adds Miracast to any existing Windows 7 and 8 PCs.
Other that that, the ScreenBeam is HDMI-certified, and offers 1080p HD video and audio. The device has the range of 50 feet and doesn't require line-of-sight to work.
The new Miracast ScreenBeam from Actiontec is available now for around $80.
