Microsoft Screen Sharing: projecting to big screens the easy way

While the display on your Lumia is perfect for you, sharing your phone’s content with other people may require something a little larger. Cue Microsoft Screen Sharing for Lumia Phones.

As you can see from the scenarios in the video, huddling with your colleagues in the meeting room as you show them content from your phone is far from ideal, and possibly a little awkward.

Instead, make use of that large screen that often sits in a room.

Share the screen of your Lumia smartphone by plugging in the Microsoft Screen Sharing into the HDMI port on a television.

All that’s left to do is to tap your Lumia against the NFC disc that sits atop the Microsoft Screen Sharing and you’re ready to share everything that’s on your Lumia screen. What’s more, the NFC disc is portable, which means you can have the Microsoft Screen Sharing system plugged to your TV, but then place the NFC disk anywhere in the room for easier sharing.

While sharing an Excel spreadsheet made with your Lumia is one great way to use Microsoft Screen Sharing, you can also show off your holiday snaps to your friends and family.

Whatever you choose to project onto your TV, Microsoft Screen Sharing helps make that happen easily.

Microsoft Screen Sharing is compatible with Lumia smartphones with screen projection (such as Lumia 730, Lumia 735 or Lumia 830) and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Miracast™ products on any operating system. Priced at $79 USD / 79€, it’s available in white or black starting later this month.

Are you ready to take it to the big screen?
