MediaTek today announced that its 802.11a/b/g/n Dual-band Mobile Phone Client (MT662X), 802.11n Wireless Adapter (RT3592) and DTV Sink solutions (MV0690) have all been selected as part of the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast test bed.
As the benchmark to drive interoperability testing for the newest Wi-Fi program, MediaTek’s Miracast-certified solutions allow mobile devices to wirelessly stream multimedia content, such as video and games, onto big screen DTVs without a connection to an access point.

“We congratulate MediaTek on achieving selection to the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast test bed,” said Wi-Fi Alliance CEO Edgar Figueroa. “MediaTek’s participation in the development of this program has been instrumental in the achievement of industry-wide certification.”

In a typical Miracast usage scenario, one device acts as the source (the transmitting device sending out the content) while the other becomes a sink (a receiving device displaying the content). Thanks to the new Wi-Fi test program and MediaTek’s proven technologies, interoperability and user experience of Miracast applications can be guaranteed.

“We are partnering with MediaTek to provide consumers with high-performance, affordable smartphone solutions that incorporate the latest Miracast Wi-Fi display technology for the home and on the go, “ said Dr. Ji-Yang Wang, COO at TCL Communications Technology. “MediaTek’s industry-leading technologies, cross-platform advantages across home and mobile, and ‘hands-on’ approach to design and support, are essential in creating products that helps us deliver a compelling user experience and differentiated offering.”

“The video streaming applications enabled by Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast are key to the growth of the Wi-Fi ecosystem encompassing Consumer Electronics, Personal Computing, and mobile devices.” said Mr. SR Tsai, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Connectivity & Networking Business Unit. “Having our Android Smartphone, Digital TV, as well as our connectivity solutions for Windows platforms selected for the Miracast™ test bed is a strong testament to the breadth and quality of MediaTek’s Wi-Fi technology.”

MediaTek offers a broad portfolio of high-performance SoC and wireless connectivity solutions for the proliferation of smartphones, tablets, PCs, DTVs, Blu-ray players and AP/routers. The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast MediaTek solutions included in the test bed are:

• MT662X a/b/g/n Dual-band Mobile Connectivity Combo
• RT3592, Ralink 802.11n Wireless Adapter
• MV0690 DTV Sink

The Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ MediaTek solutions have entered mass production and are shipping in commercially launched devices.
