June 1, 2012
Wi-Fi Certified Miracast program to launch later in 2012.

The Wi-Fi Alliance announced that it is finalizing its certification program for Wi-Fi devices to support display applications, and that it has defined a new mark to designate products that have passed certification. The new certification mark will be Wi-Fi Certified Miracast. Wi-Fi Certified Miracast products will have implemented the Wi-Fi Alliance's Wi-Fi Display Specification, which will be published in August, and will have proven interoperability through testing at an authorized laboratory.

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, Wi-Fi Certified Miracast devices will make use of a Wi-Fi connection to deliver audio and video content from one device to another, without cables or a connection to an existing Wi-Fi network. These devices connect directly, so users can perform actions such as watching videos from a smartphone on a big screen television, or sharing a laptop screen with the conference room projector to collaborate in real-time.

Televisions, set-top boxes, notebooks, handsets and tablets are among the device types which will be certified.
