Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi)
For windows tablets.
Any recommendations for apps for an android and a windows tablet to wirelessly connect to a PC to show the tablets screen?
Apple has airserve and a few, but am struggling to find any for a windows tablet.
isn't widi an adhoc wifi thingy?
Is there any software that can be installed on the tablet and PC? I tried mirrorop but that keeps crashing on the PC.
Have you tried vnc with a reverse connection?
No, but is that going to be user friendly?! Needs to be basic basic basic for our users.
On Android a Miracast Receiver of some kind will show the device's screen wirelessly on a monitor/projector (Not quite the same as wirelessly showing on a PC as was originally asked). This is supported natively from Android 4.3 onwards I believe but apparently only on certain devices - It can be switched on via Settings > Display > Wireless Display. The receivers cost between £40 - £70 from my initial research and some seem to have better reviews than others. I am planning on ordering one this week for testing...
I've been looking at this too. Which receiver are you thinking of ordering?
Almost certainly the Netgear PTV300 as mentioned by plexer. We have several Nexus 10 tablets we use in school and I have read a few reviews which suggest that the PTV3000 works well with this tablet although some say it is buggy and temperamental. Cheapest price I have found so far is £60inc VAT
I got Mirrorop working. So will test that for now.
Just to update: I picked up a Netgear PTV3000 this afternoon. Connected it to a projector, updated the firmware (really straightforward to do) and then did some testing with my Nexus 10 - Initially it seemed to struggle with streaming video and the display flickered frequently. Then I went back into the setup and found an option to do with supporting other devices, checked this and the mirroring worked great since. I have now passed it over to the class to test further...
Be aware that Netgear do not supply an HDMI cable with the receiver.
