Between Google’s Chromecast, Apple’s exclusive AirPlay, poorly supported Miracast… Xiaomi is launching its own remote content distribution solution between a PC and a screen.
Among all the latest Xiaomi announcements, there was the brand new Xiaomi 12 range. The Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro are especially interesting, as every year with these smartphones that are the flagships of the brand.
There have been many other announcements, more or less important, including a product with an extended name: Xiaomi Paipai Wireless Projector Screen 4K.
A solution to stream 4K video wirelessly
The Xiaomi Paipai 4K Wireless Projector Screen is in the form of a TV dongle: it is not technically a TV box, however. It is a wireless streaming solution to show what your laptop is showing on your TV.
There are many similar solutions, often professional and very expensive. There is also a standard, the Miracast. However, it is relatively poorly supported and widespread. You can also use the Chromecast feature, but you must use Google technologies. Finally, Apple has its own solution: AirPlay.
In short, the Xiaomi Paipai 4K wireless projector screen is placed there. It enables you to stream 4K definition video at 30fps wirelessly between a PC and a TV. The set consists of two dongles, one that connects to USB-C on the PC, the other is powered by micro USB and connected to the HDMI of the TV.
Technically, the two devices will communicate over their own 5 GHz Wi-Fi network, like a local network. This ensures a stable flow. However, the limitation to 30 fps in 4K does not allow more advanced uses like games, for example. It is a solution rather dedicated to professional use or work, knowing that it is not optimal to display content at 30 frames per second. Animations will appear jerky to you.
For 499 yuan, or about 70 euros, this product should not leave China, at least for the moment. However, it will certainly be possible to order it on sites like AliExpress.
