How To Get A Movie From Iphone To TV
iPhone (iPad), as an individual device, in most cases fully meets the requirements of the owner. However, what to do when there is a desire to watch a movie in a large company or to show friends photos? In this case, you can connect the smartphone to the TV, below we will describe 3 ways to do it.
Wireless connection via DLNA
The DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standard is designed to transmit content over a local area network and is supported by most modern TVs. To broadcast photos,s and music from iPhone to the big screen, you will need to install a special application from the App Store, fortunately, most of them (for example, Flipps, iMediaShare) are distributed free of charge.
The operation algorithm of such programs is quite simple, the only condition is that the iPhone (iPad) and the TV (supporting DLNA) must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. It remains to select the desired TV in the application to create a pair, and then begin to broadcast content on the big screen. over, the application itself often offers the user many different streaming services, films and music (in most cases in English), as well as the ability to transfer content from the Photo, and Music applications.
If the TV is not equipped with a Wi-Fi module or does not support applications for broadcasting content from the iPhone, you can use a special transmitter. For example, a Defender Smart Transmitter X1 worth about 2,000 rubles is connected to the TV’s HDMI connector and receives the signal from a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi. To transfers, photos and music, you also need to install Flipps or iMediaShare on the device.
The advantage of this method is that the connection does not require additional devices (with the exception of the transmitter in some cases) and is quite easy to configure. However, at the same time, such programs do not know how to directly output the image from the screen of the iPhone (iPad) to the TV, but only transfer content from certain iOS applications and connected partner services. In addition, DLNA technology involves the use of the resources of the final output device (i.e., TV), which can affect the speed of work.
The vast majority of modern TVs are equipped with HDMI and / or VGA, which allows you to create a wired connection between your iOS device and TV. Such a connection will allow you to directly broadcast the image from the smartphone screen in HD-quality 1080p without the slightest delay. The data transfer speed will not only allow you to watch movies or photos, but also comfortably play dynamic games, quickly type text, etc. Using a wired connection, you do not need to install additional software and configure your smartphone. just connect the Lightning and HDMI / VGA ports.
What about the disadvantages of a wired connection? Firstly, it is wired, which in itself is not very convenient. if you want to show photos on a TV at a party, then you or the owner must have the appropriate adapter and cable.
Secondly, these toys are far from cheap. the Lightning-HDMI or Lightning-VGA adapter in the Russian online Apple Store costs 4 thousand rubles, another 1.6 thousand will have to be laid out for an HDMI or VGA cable.
Connecting your iPhone to your TV via Apple TV can be described in three words. quickly, reliably, and expensively. Naturally, laying out 14 thousand rubles for a set-top box (fourth generation with 32 GB of internal memory) solely for displaying images from the iPhone screen to a TV is unprofitable, but in general, buying this device is unlikely to be unjustified.
About the capabilities of Apple TV, we described in detail in this material.
To start broadcasting content from your iPhone or iPad to your TV, you need to follow a fairly simple procedure. go to the Control Center on your smartphone (gesture from the bottom of the screen up) and select Air Play, and then Apple TV. It remains only to turn the switch “replay»In an active position.
The connection will be established automatically, which will be signaled by the corresponding icon in the status bar of the iPhone or iPad.
With this connection, the performance of the TV is completely unimportant. all resource-intensive processes will be performed by the set-top box.
