Connect my devices to my tv









WIDI / MIRACAST

WiDi allows you to share content between devices using a direct wireless link, so you don't need to have your own network in place the way you do with DLNA. WiDi was developed by Intel and is integrated into Intel-based PCs, as well as TVs from Samsung, LG, and Toshiba (adapter products also exist to add the functionality). WiDi supports the transmission of up to 1080p video and 5.1-channel audio. Not only can you share media content to be displayed on your large TV screen, but you can view other PC applications, too. The Intel WiDi Widget allows you to display separate things on the PC and TV at the same time.
DLNA
DLNA is likely the term most familiar to our audience, as it's now available in a large percentage of the smart A/V products released to the market. DLNA stands for Digital Living Network Alliance, which is actually the name of the non-profit alliance of companies that formed this standard for media transmission that is based on the broader UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) standard. DLNA allows for content streaming over a wired or wireless IP-based network. 
NFC
No, we're not talking football; we're talking Near Field Communication. You've no doubt seen the Samsung phone commercials where they touch the phones together and exchange data. That's NFC, which establishes a short-range wireless link to exchange information between devices placed within about an inch of each other. NFC can have lots of applications in our daily lives, providing a quick way to exchange contact information, pay for food or tolls, or get more info off of an advertisement.
