"Both consumers and professionals want to experience multimedia on the best possible screen," said Dean Chang, president and CEO at Actiontec Electronics.

ScreenBeam is a simple and affordable way to take advantage of the biggest and best screens in your home or office."
"Miracast certification ensures interoperability across a wide range of products, and Actiontec has tirelessly tested against all known Miracast-certified source devices to ensure customers have a great experience. ScreenBeam works with all device types and brands; its versatility will continue to grow as consumers bring more Miracast devices into their homes and offices," added Chang.
