Q: How is the SW-510W discovered by a mobile device?
A: For an iOS device or Mac, the SW-510W is discovered through AirPlay mDNS over Wi-Fi when a user initiates an AirPlay session. The SW-510W also supports AirPlay discovery via Bluetooth, when a Bluetooth dongle is installed into the unit (separate purchase required). For Android and Chromebook devices, the SW-510W interfaces with them via the proprietary Google Cast protocol.
The SW-510W is discovered by a Miracast-enabled Windows PC through Wi-Fi Direct and its wireless access point. Alternatively, it can interface with a PC over an Ethernet or Wi-Fi network (Miracast over Infrastructure).
