|There might be solutions in the market (I've seen one that transmits VGA signal using a USB dongle- very low-res for today's screens), but not of them are widespread. Instead, pretty much everyone connects to an external monitor with a cable (and if you're on Mac, add a dongle or two).|
Definitely not an EE person, but: probably to transmit UHD data might stretch the limits of the physical layer (although there are some reasonable assumptions that we can make - e.g. very close proximity, clear line-of-sight, etc). But something as basic as casting a Chrome tab to TV works OK and maybe can be improved.
HN readers more hardware-inclined than me, I'd appreciate your responses.
