The new device lets users send mobile media to the big screen.
Lenovo has detailed its first media casting product, the Lenovo Cast. Like Google's Chromecast, the device lets users stream content from their tablets and smartphones to their TVs.
"Today people want more from their devices – the freedom technology gives them to accomplish more. They want to share a variety of content from their smartphones and tablets such as online videos and games with friends and family on a larger screen," said Liu Jun, executive vice president and president, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo. "The new Lenovo Cast is our latest device created to enable such personalized experiences."
With the Lenovo Cast, customers can stream video and mirror any content from their DLNA or Miracast-enabled tablets or smartphones to their TV. The compact device plugs right into a display's HDMI port and uses dual frequency Wi-Fi to transfer content up to 20 meters and through up to two walls.
The Lenovo Cast will launch worldwide in August for a suggested retail price of $49.
