What is Screen Mirroring?

Screen mirroring is a feature that’s found on most modern smart devices (e.g., Laptops, Desktop PCs, Smart TVs, Projectors, Smartphones) that allows a device’s screen to be copied (i.e. mirrored) into that of another. This feature is very useful for media streaming, as it allows the mirroring of media from one smart device to another.

The main reason to use screen mirroring is often to make the media screen bigger (i.e. upscaling), but it’s often used for accessibility and convenience (i.e. interfacing apps between devices). Below, we’ll take a look at the different pathways one can follow to effectively use this feature with Vankyo projectors.

Streaming App or OS Screen Mirroring

Before we discuss the most popular ways to use the screen mirroring function, we have to understand its operating system and application requirements. Some applications (Apps) and some Operating Systems (OS) have screen mirroring features embedded within them. A notable app that has a screen mirroring function is the YouTube app, while most mobile and desktop operating systems have built-in screen mirroring functions (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows, Linux, etc…)

These operating systems and their applications (software) need a direct link between devices to use the screen mirroring tool. The 2 most popular ways to achieve this connectivity between devices are via WiFi and HDMI (wired & wireless). Both the wired and wireless screen mirroring approaches have advantages and drawbacks, and they both perform a very similar function - to enable video & audio transmission in real-time.

HDMI Screen Mirroring

HDMI screen mirroring is one of the most convenient and accessible ways to enable this feature with Vankyo projectors. HDMI is a multimedia interfacing system that uses an HDMI cable to connect to specific HDMI ports, allowing for real-time transmission of high-quality video and audio data. Almost all Vankyo projectors have HDMI ports that enable HDMI screen mirroring.

Touse HDMI screen mirroring with a Vankyo compatible projector you’ll need to follow these simple steps:

  1. Have your Vankyo projector ready.
  2. Have a device that you wish to interface with the Vankyo projector via HDMI (e.g. laptop) ready.
  3. Acquire an HDMI cable.
  4. Connect the HDMI cable to the HDMI ports on your media device (e.g. laptop) and your Vankyo projector.
  5. Select the HDMI input option on your Vankyo projector.
  6. Select the HDMI output option on your media device (e.g. laptop).
  7. Watch the projector image become a screen mirror of your source device.
  8. Use the projected image as an up-scaled screen of your laptop.

At first glance, WiFi screen mirroring could be difficult, especially in understanding its features.

WiFi screen mirroring is a wireless approach to screen mirroring, bypassing the HDMI cable and ports for a direct link between projector and media device via the internet. Many applications from both the media device (e.g. laptop, smartphone) and the Vankyo projector have screen mirroring functions via WiFi, all you need is a stable internet connection with access to a WiFi router and its wireless networks that link your media device with your Vankyo projector.
