SW-510W – Wireless AV System Requirements

Mac and iOS screen mirroring

Users can share content from their Apple® Macs® and iOS® devices.

  • iOS version 5.0 (released 2011) and later
  • macOS® version 10.8 Mountain Lion (released 2012) and later
  • Supports Bluetooth®-assisted iOS device discovery. An optional Bluetooth adapter is required (not included with the SW-510W). The Plugable and Kinivo Bluetooth 4.0 adapters are recommended.

Miracast

The SW-510W can receive AV from a Miracast™-enabled device in two operating modes:

  • Peer to peer (Wi-Fi® Direct®). The SW-510W wirelessly receives Miracast directly from the device.
  • Peer to peer reliability is dependent on the capability of the laptop’s wireless network card
  • Miracast over Infrastructure. The SW-510W receives Miracast from the device over a network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi connection must be secured with WPA2-PSK or WPA-Enterprise. (Support for WPA-Enterprise is coming soon in a future firmware update).

The following are the necessary requirements for a mobile device to deliver a Miracast presentation to the SW-510W:

  • Windows PC or tablet certified for Miracast and running Windows® 8.1 or Windows 10 version 1703
  • Windows 10 version 1703 (or later) required for Miracast over Infrastructure
  • Miracast-capable Windows Phone device running Windows 8.1 or Windows 10

Google Cast

The SW-510W supports Google Cast™ interfacing, subject to the following:

  • Mobile device running Android™ version 4.4.2 or later
  • Android devices: casting available natively or from the Google Home™ app
  • Chromebook™ devices with OS version 35 and later
  • Supports casting from the Chrome™ desktop browser
  • Does not support URL casting (VP8 / VP9 decoding from apps such as YouTube™, Netflix®, Hulu®, and Amazon® Prime® Video). However, videos can be played directly from the Chrome mobile web browser.
