Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter review - CNET
Setup is simple and quick, if your devices are up-to-date. It uses standard Miracast technology that works with Windows computers and some Android devices, without needing a traditional Wi-Fi network.

The Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter does exactly what its utilitarian name says. It provides a way to sling your screen (with audio) from a computer or Android device to a TV. The adapter is attached to your TV or projector using HDMI and is powered by USB. Otherwise, the device does nothing else. It has no apps of its own and requires a source device to be of any use.

This adapter uses Miracast, a technology which uses Wi-Fi Direct to communicate between devices. What this means is your PC and the adapter don't have to communicate through a common router, instead they create a peer-to-peer network. That might not sound like a big deal, but considering its diminutive size, the Wireless Display Adapter is pocketable and can easily be brought from the conference room to the hotel room.
