How to Cast a PC to a TV
Casting a PC to a TV offers new ways to streamline content sharing in both the home and in business. Screen sharing used to be limited to a physical cable connection. Now there are wireless options from wireless display adapters to wireless HDMI kits that make casting to a larger screen easier than ever.
One of the simplest methods to cast your PC to a TV is to use an HDMI cable. Simply plug an HDMI cable into your computer’s HDMI port and plug the other end into your TV for an easy, stable connection. While this seems beyond simple, there are a few things to note. First, double check that your PC has an HDMI port. A lot of older PCs or laptops include an HDMI port, but many newer laptops don’t have one. This can be remedied by using an adapter.
Wireless HDMI Kits
If a cable connection doesn’t appeal to you or suit your needs, you can skip the cables and adapters and opt for a wireless HDMI kit. Just like it sounds, wireless HDMI is the equivalent of an HDMI connection but without the cables. HDMI kits include a transmitter and a receiver. By connecting the transmitter to your PC and plugging the receiver into your TV, the devices instantly pair and are ready for casting. Wireless HDMI does not require Wi-Fi access as it creates its own direct wireless connection between the transmitter and the receiver, making it a great solution for business settings.
Benefits of Wireless HDMI Kits
Below are the key benefits you’ll experience when switching over from wired to wireless HDMI.
No more cable clutter
Cast your PC, connect your set top boxes, gaming consoles or cable boxes without the mess of wires behind the media stand or dangling from your wall mounted TV.
With wireless HDMI, your PC/laptop is no longer tethered to the TV or projector. You are free to move them around a room. This flexibility is great for home or business use.
Since wireless HDMI kits use transmitters and receivers, they work with a variety of devices, TVs, and projectors. Most HDMI enabled devices (PCs, laptops, cable boxes, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles) are compatible with wireless HDMI.
You’ll love how simple it is to begin casting your PC to a TV with a wireless HDMI kit. Just plug in the transmitter and receiver and you’ll be ready to cast.
