In this article, I would like to highlight the question of how to duplicate the screen of an Android phone on a TV. And the Rombica Smart Cast v02 TV adapter will help us. With it, we can broadcast the display of the smartphone to the TV. Samsung, LG, Sony or any other.
Adapter for duplicating smartphone screen on TV. Rombica Smart Cast v02
First, I’ll tell you a little about what kind of device Rombica Smart Cast v02 is. here is a link to the description on the official website of the company. It works with Miracast technology, with which you can play the screen of any device on a large television monitor. This adapter also supports any operating system. Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS. At the same time, your TV set may not even have a built-in wireless module. All you need is one free HDMI connector to which it will connect.
Outwardly, it very much resembles a flash drive slightly larger in size. The advantages include the presence of an external antenna. Thanks to her, the signal reception will be more stable.
Rombica Smart Cast v02 receives a signal at a frequency of 2.4 GHz. This is one of the most budget models in the Rombica miracast adapter line. Therefore, 5 GHz support is not here. And this means that Full HD video cannot normally be duplicated onto the screen. But in the resolution of 720P it reproduces quite well.
Included with it is a detailed instruction in Russian, an HDMI extension cable and a microUSB cable for power.
There is no adapter. it means that you will use the USB port on the TV. Or use regular charging from a smartphone.
Connect and configure Rombica Smart Cast v02
Let’s move on to practice. Before you start broadcasting the screen, you need to connect the Rombica Smart Cast v02 adapter to the TV. This can be done directly into a free HDMI connector. Or through the adapter from the kit. This is more convenient if the TV is installed close to the wall.
And also connect it with a USB cable to supply power to the device. Then, with the remote control, select the port into which the adapter is inserted as the signal source.
The start page for the Rhombic adapter opens. Here we are interested in three things:
- QR code. on it you can download the EZCast application for working with the console
- The network SSID is the name of the wifi signal that the adapter relays immediately after switching on
- Password. to connect to the device’s wireless channel
How to transfer the image from the phone screen to a Samsung or LG TV through the EZCast app?
In this article, we will see how the phone screen is duplicated on a TV. The manufacturer does not matter at all. It can be either popular Samsung or LG, or another. A little later, instructions for a laptop and computer will also appear on the site.
First of all, you need to download and install the EZCast application on your smartphone. It is multi-platform, that is, there is a version for all operating systems. Including Android, iOS, Windows and MacOS.
After installation, open the wifi settings and find the network with the name "EzCast_XXXX".
We connect to it using the password specified on the TV screen. And run the EZCast program on your smartphone. There are all sorts of functions. But to duplicate the phone screen on the TV, you must first find your TV. To do this, click on the icon with a magnifying glass in the upper right corner of the screen.
And select the EZCast adapter as the signal receiver
Immediately after connecting, the settings menu will be displayed on the TV monitor, and the smartphone screen will turn into a remote control for navigation on it
Go to the WiFi settings and connect to your router
Now we will return to the main window of the EZcast application and see another new icon in the form of two monitors. Click on it in order to start duplicating the smartphone screen on TV.
That’s all. now the picture from the phone repeats exactly on the TV. You can run a video and watch it through the big screen.
Similarly, you can duplicate the screen of your iPhone or computer / laptop on Windows or MAC. On how to do this, I will write separately.
