The Miracast wireless display mode, now available on many Android devices, is loved and hated at the same time. It is loved by those just looking for a shared wireless screen and hated by those wishing to be able to do other things on smaller screens. If you’re the latter, MediaTek can make you happy. At the CES, the Taiwanese chipset designer showcased his solution which will enable you to share the contents of a video on a Miracast screen, without causing you to give up your mobile display about other tasks, e.g. websurfing, sending e-mails or even games. See for yourself on our own video.
A firm (Rep) told us that to enjoy this solution, app developers should be using MediaTek’s forthcoming API so as to access this functionality. Nothing is said about when consumers will be able to use it at home, yet since MediaTek sent more than 200 million smartphone processors last year, we’re pretty sure developers will want their share of the cake.
