WiDi - Wireless Display

Short for Wireless Display, WiDi is a technology developed by Intel to enable computers and laptops to seamlessly work with monitors, TVs and other peripherals without the need for cables or wires.

With Intel WiDi users can stream videos and movies, photos, music and apps from their computer or laptop to monitors or HDTVs that are compatible with the WiDi technology. Intel WiDi offers full 1080p high definition video quality as well as support for 5.1 surround sound.

Intel WiDi's Evolution Since 2010

Intel WiDi debuted with the 20120 release of Intel's 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core processor family, and in late 2012 Intel released Intel WiDi version 3.5, which added support for the Wi-Fi Alliance's Miracast streaming standard and reduced latency by more than 10 times compared to previous WiDi versions.

Intel WiDi also plays prominently along with WiGig in Intel's new Skylake processors for a wire-free computing environment.
