Ixonos Multi-Display for Android 4.4.2 with Miracast

The Ixonos Multi-Display solution has, since the previous post, been ported to Android 4.4.2 and a few features has been added in the process. It is truly medium agnostic and works over 'whatever medium' supported by the DisplayManagerService (i.e. MHL/HDMI/MiraCast etc.) of the platform. Finally applications can be moved between displays through the 'recents' menu.

The solution addresses the limitations of the Android platform when it comes to multitasking and running several apps in parallel on different displays.

The below video shows a Nexus 10 tablet running Android 4.4.2 initially connected to a TV via HDMI playing an action flying game. New input methods like track pad and game controller has been added to the System UI to provide input for the external display. This provides mouse- and game controller input events, enabling all games that supports the standard Android game controller API to be controlled from the tablet.

At a later point in time, the tablet is connected wirelessly to the TV using Miracast via a Netgear Push2TV display adapter. This enables a true cordless Multi-Display experience where users can enjoy content on a secondary screen without the hazzle of cables.
