Project Wirelessly

Background

This article is for users with a Miroir projector model that has wireless connectivity built-in (models M200A and M300A). 

Note: Projecting cannot be done via a Bluetooth connection. Bluetooth bandwidth is insufficient for video and screen mirroring. Bluetooth connectivity is included on some Miroir projector models (such as the M200A and M300A) for flexible connectivity options for devices like external speakers, Bluetooth keyboards and for the Miroir Remote.

Wireless Compatibility and Setup

The wireless connection to the projector is setup differently depending on what type of device you are connecting. Please use the quick links below to jump to the relevant information in this article for your device:

Android devices require Android OS 4.4, or later, the wireless screen mirroring capability and Miracast compatibility to connect wirelessly with the projector. Google devices running Android OS 6.0 or later are not compatible.

Troubleshooting

  • Check that you are using the correct wireless display mode on the projector. 
    • Screen Mirroring wireless mode is required for most devices, but if you are trying to connect an Apple device, you will need to select the DLNA wireless mode.
  • Turn off Bluetooth on your phone or tablet, and then retry the connection. The Bluetooth connection on a phone or tablet may interfere with a wireless connection to the projector. 
  • Restart your source device and your Miroir projector, and then try the connection again.
  • Environmental interference causes poor video quality. 
    • Try reducing the distance between your projector and your source device. 
    • If possible, ensure that both devices are in a location without walls or other obstructions between them.
    • Turn off other wireless and Bluetooth devices (such as wireless printers, or Bluetooth speakers) that may be causing interference, restart the source devices and projector, and then try connecting again.
