The workings of screen mirroring
A screen-sending device and a screen-receiving device are required for screen mirroring. A screen mirroring protocol is used by the screen-sending device. There are several screen mirroring protocols available. Apple AirPlay on iPhones and Google Cast on Chromebooks are great instances of this.
A receiver is also required for screen mirroring. The receiver is where the stuff you’re trying to display will go. Hardware receivers include Apple TV, Chromecast, and a slew of others. Reflector, for example, is a software tool that transforms current devices, such as a Mac or Windows computer, into powerful receivers.
Depending on the devices that are attempting to connect, screen mirroring connections can be made in a variety of ways. Because different forms of native screen mirroring technologies (such as AirPlay and Google Cast) are used on different devices, compatibility is not always guaranteed. Miracast is available on Windows computers, whereas AirPlay is available on Apple devices. This prohibits Windows devices from connecting to Apple TVs wirelessly. Businesses and institutions that deploy and employ a variety of device kinds face technological challenges as a result of these obstacles.
