Intel has discontinued marketing and development for Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) and Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi) applications and related receiver certification programs effective immediately.

Because the Miracast* standard is natively supported in Windows® 10 and Windows 8.1* operating systems for wireless display capabilities with strong user experience, Intel is redirecting resources and focuses to future areas of growth.  

For more information on Miracast, see Using Miracast* with Windows 8.1* and Windows® 10.
