In today’s world, screens are everywhere. Unlike a few decades back, our streets are filled with different screens; from mobile phones to the gigantic digital billboards used for advertising, it’s no doubt that screens have come to stay in our society. That being said, screens come in all sizes and resolutions depending on the pixel density and other parameters—the bigger the screen, the better.
Now let’s say you’ve taken a pretty good photo on your phone. Or perhaps you’ve received a marathon of videos on your phone that you would like to view. However, your mobile device isn’t going to cut it. Even as our phones get bigger displays with every new release, they pale compared to computer and TV screens. You might want to look at your images or watch the videos on a bigger screen, but what can you do? Move the files to removable storage and then plug them up into the new screen. While this is an effective way to view media from your phone on a larger screen, it’s hardly convenient. It takes way too much effort and might ultimately defeat the sense of ease that comes with a bigger screen. That’s when screen mirroring comes into play.

This can happen between a phone and a TV or a phone and a PC or even a TV. Screen mirroring technology exists on many different platforms and has different names on each.
