MANHASSET, NY -- Texas Instruments has enhanced its Miracast system for streaming digital content from mobile devices to larger screens.
Today’s Miracast offering is based on OMAP 4 processors and the WiLink 6.0 and WiLink 7.0 connectivity solutions, and will extend to the OMAP 5 platform and WiLink 8.0 family.
TI’s original Miracast solution was introduced in June this year. The offering leverages the M-Shield content security and OMAP platform, along with a WiLink supporting 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0 and GPS technologies.
Together, these products enable users to reliably display DRM-free and DRM-protected content with full encryption from a mobile device onto a larger screen at full 1080p HD resolution, according to TI.
TI’s Miracast source and display solutions deliver an improved user experience through standard and proprietary features to save source processing, and improve end-to-end quality and latency, says TI.
Features include a cloning mode, which can share a mobile screen on a remote display, cinema mode, to wirelessly stream Internet content and videos in the background while using the mobile device for other tasks such as Internet browsing or email.
WiLink 8.0 enhances the Miracast offering with higher throughput as well as simple and quick NFC pairing.
TI’s Miracast solutions are available for high-volume OEMs and ODMs.
