What is Google Cast?
With Google Cast, you can fully mirror your screen from your Android devices and Chrome OS, and when casting via the Chrome browser from any operating system, without the need for the DisplayNote app.
How to stream with Google Cast from a Chrome browser:
- Open Chrome.
- At the top right, select More (the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of your Chrome Browser) ->
- Click on Cast.
- Choose whether you’d like to share your current tab in Chrome (Cast tab) or your whole screen (Cast desktop).
- Select the name of the Montage receiver. When you are done and wish to stop sharing select Stop.
How to use on Android devices:
The steps to mirror from your Android might vary depending on your device. The most common ways are either using Smart view, Screen mirroring, Quick Connect, or through the Cast settings on your phone.
The latency for Google Cast on Montage is around 650 ms under good network conditions.
Maximum bitrate can be as high as 20 Mbps, but average bitrates will be significantly lower.
Most Android devices encode Google Cast at a resolution of 720p at 30 fps, but Chrome OS and casting from the Chrome browser and a few devices offer higher resolution.
