When the EZCast was first released, it completely revolutionized the technology market, so much so, its even become more popular than the super fast Google Chromecast. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s an almost exact replica and, according to technology experts, is even better because it enables you use mirroring and other applications that up until recently, the Chromecast could not.
As was to be expected, AliExpress also offers these EZCast devices at incredible prices, much cheaper than in other physical or internet shops. In today’s article we are going to talk about what this product is, how and works and where to buy it. We also will be talking about the latest model, the EZCast M2.
What’s an EZCast and how does it work?
The EZCast is a complex system the size of a USB that allows you to watch television or other multimedia archives from the device you connect it to (important: it’s wireless). You can even surf the internet. All you have to do is connect it to your phone, tablet or your computer to immediately and watch tv.
How does it work? It’s super easy. It connects to the HDMI input in your television and uses a USB port. All you have to do is select the HDMI port where you’ve set up the USB and you are set to go! The device creates a Wifi network (again, without any cables) to create a connection between the connected terminal and the screen. The first time you use it you’ll have to install the software, but don’t worry, its super fast and easy. Another thing, before you do this you’ll have to download the App for the device you are going to use with it.
Basically, you will be able to see and stream pictures, videos, song, archives and get connected to various internet platforms such as Youtube, online games, etc. on your tv. And don’t forget the best, mirroring on your tv. Don’t know what we are talking about? Just take a look at the following video.
How does mirroring work?
Mirroring is a modern application (available on the EZCast) that allows you to see anything you have in your tablet, smartphone or computer. But… isn’t that what the EZCast does? Well, yeah, but mirroring also allows to see anything your camera or video is focusing on, on another device or tv. In other words, its like having a wireless screen. Just to give you an example, you can leave your camera filming a baby in one room and then go do something in another room. If the baby wakes up or cries, you’ll be able to see it. The best part? It has an incredible quality in both sound and image and almost no delay…or maybe you consider a second a lot of time?
An IMPORTANT thing to remember is that to use this mirroring function through Miracast, you’ll have to be connected to internet (beyond the WIFI network created by the EZCast), but that shouldn’t be a problem honestly… who doesn’t have internet in their house nowadays.
