EZCast Is a Wi-Fi Display Solution (Miracast, DLNA, etc..) to be Used With Actions Micro HDMI TV Dongles

This morning I’ve come across an interesting video via Google+ (in Chinese) that showcases the features of EZCast, an application that can be installed on Android or iOS, and supports screen mirroring, DLNA, and Miracast with HDMI TV Dongles designed by Actions Micro. The company is not to be confused with Actions Semi The company is a subsidiary of Actions Semi, an IC company that provides ATV6003 SoC used in HDMI TV Dongles such as iPush.

If you’ve watched the video above, beside DLNA and Miracast, you’ve found out it can also be a nice presentation tools, allowing for PowerPoint slideshows, and notes writing via your smartphone. After further research, I found the application has recently been published on both Apple App Store and Google Play.

The App description is only available in Chinese, but here’s the (unedited) Google Translation of the description:

EZCast is a powerful home media sharing software, you can complete mobile phone, tablet, PC screen on the TV to switch to the big screen perfectly. Actions-Micro with wireless connectivity solutions to achieve the best multi-screen interactive experience

Major support

  • Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android operating system, the four
  • Cell Phone / Tablet / PC pictures, music, video sharing
  • Youku video, youtube, Sohu video and other online video sharing
  • Office/PDF/Mac OS Page Share
  • Support for DLNA, including Tencent video, Sohu video, PPTV and other DLNA sharing
  • Miracast support.
  • Use with Actionsmicro program Dongle

That’s all information I have for now, but hopefully, we’ll find out more soon, including the exact hardware to be used with EZCast.
[Update: SinoV-WD-12 Dongle is using EZCast, but the company did not provide details about the hardware]

“…HDMI TV Dongles designed by Actions Micro. The company is not to be confused with Actions Semi, an IC company…”
Apparently the above is not quite correct: http://www.actions-micro.com/About.aspx
“Actions Microelectronics Co., Ltd is an IC design company co-founded by a team of experienced talent from Silicon Valley, China, and Taiwan. Actions Microelectronics is a subsidiary of Actions Semiconductor CO., Ltd.”

Hi, Jerome,

See my extended review of SinoV’s dongle at http://android-minipc.azurewebsites.net/index.php/2013/08/googles-35-chromecast-might-redefine-the-media-player-market/#EZCast.

I’d be interested in reviewing your EZCast dongle and software. Please advise your email address to [email protected] and I’ll provide shipping details.

What’s the price for one unit including shipping?

Cheers,

I received my EzCast dongle today but will have to wait until later tonight to test it out. One thing I can say is that the user interface looks nice and the Ezcast app also looks well put together. One thing I can say is that it is a diffferent beat than the iPush. They look identical on the outside. The case is exactly the same. This is a “sample” so the case may change in the end. I don’t know. Cracking open the cases reveal very different looking insides. The main chip on the Ezcast is labeled AM8251. Also… Read more »

I spent some time last night testing this out. Overall it is probably the most complete of these dongles that I have tried. Everything works pretty nicely but not perfect. The interface is really nice and very easy to use. On screen information tells you what you need to do on your phone. It is simple. Launch the EzCast app and connect to the dongle with the phone’s wifi settings. After that, I went to settings and connected the dongle to my home’s wifi network. A firmware update was available. There is a one click firmware update procedure. Once you… Read more »

One other thing that I forgot to mention is that the dongle itself does not have wifi capabilities. It comes with a USB cable that has a USB wifi dongle plugged into it. It also has a microusb connector and a regular USB connector. One end gets plugged into the dongle. Another end gets plugged into a USB power source. It would be better to have USB built into the dongle itself so you could use any USB cable. But, this is not a terrible thing as long as you don’t lose the cable.

Hey, I got a sample of this very same thing a couple of days ago from a factory in china. understand that there might be an option of a dongle with a wifi antenna built in. that’d be nice, and make it a single cable for power. haven’t really been able to spend to much time on it yet, but did notice support for idevices with an option named EZAir. Not been able to get this to work with my iPad yet but the hope is that it’s AirPlay Mirroring or something similar. @Lawguy have you seen / tried this… Read more »

I have just received the EZcast this week. It does not work for Netflix, I can not get the dlna to work on my andriod (Samsung tab 3 7″). My iPhone5 and my ipad 2 only works on the picture and video in my phone. It does let you AirPlay, but no video, just the sound, please help.
