Miracast is a peer-to-peer, wireless screencast standard formed by a Wi-Fi direct connection similar to Bluetooth or WiDi that Microsoft is supporting under Windows 8.1.

Miracast enables wireless delivery of compressed standard or high-definition audio and video to or from desktops, tablets, mobile phones, and other devices.

The Miracast receiver used must be Wi-Fi Certified for the technology to work.
