Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check the Applicable Products and Categories section of this article before starting these steps.

The Wi-Fi Direct™ feature of the TV alone can't display the content of a connected device. It requires Screen Mirroring or Miracast® technology to display the contents of a computer or mobile device.

  • Miracast builds upon Wi-Fi Direct technology with mechanisms to negotiate the video connection between devices, set up content protection (if needed), stream content, and maintain the video session.

Manufacturers have different names for the Miracast feature. Below are some examples:

ManufacturerMiracast Feature
Sony®Screen mirroring
Samsung®AllShare Cast or Screen Mirroring
LG® NexusWireless Display
  • Check the product manual to determine if it's Wi-Fi Certified Miracast. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
  • For third party devices, check the Miracast support website for more information.
