How Does Screen Mirroring Work

Screen mirroring requires that a screen-sending device – your phone, for example- and a screen-receiving device (a Smart TV) are connected. To connect these two devices, you need a connector, and there are several ways to do so.

These screen-sending devices use a screen mirroring protocol that copies either your full desktop screen or a single window that you want to share, such as a document, app, or browser. These connections are set up in many ways depending on the devices that are trying to connect. Some are equipped with native screen mirroring technology (such as AirPlay and Google Cast). Others, like Windows devices, are built-in with Miracast while iOS devices use Airplay.

All these connectors use different protocols targeting their own technology. This fact is one of the disadvantages of relying on native technology as we use multiple devices from different brands. MirrorMeister, on the other hand, has cross-platform compatibility: our application allows iOS and macOS devices to screen mirror to most TV brands and streaming devices in the market.
