“Both consumers and professionals want to experience multimedia on the best possible screen,” said Dean Chang, president and CEO at Actiontec Electronics. “It’s no longer acceptable to subject your friends or colleagues to watching your content on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop screen when you can beam it to your projector or flat-panel. ScreenBeam is a simple and affordable way to take advantage of the biggest and best screens in your home or office.”
“Miracast certification ensures interoperability across a wide range of products, and Actiontec has tirelessly tested against all known Miracast-certified source devices to ensure customers have a great experience. ScreenBeam works with all device types and brands; its versatility will continue to grow as consumers bring more Miracast devices into their homes and offices,” added Chang.
