What is needed to ship

There are not many requirements, since from the mobile device the only thing that has to be met is to have a application for this, as for example ES Explorer which gives access to all the files that are stored (there are many others available and that are free in Play Store). Apart from this, the projector has to be connected to the same WiFi network that the smartphone so that everything works correctly.

  • Synchronize the accessory with your smartphone with the Google Chrome application and select the HDMI port from which to broadcast.
  • Now simply send what you see on the phone or tablet on a regular basis, using the screen-shaped icon with small lines for this purpose (in the aforementioned Home application there is an option to send Chromecast directly).
