Lenovo has lifted the curtains on Lenovo Cast, the company’s first media casting device for tablets and smartphones. It allows users to stream content wirelessly from their portable screens to a TV. Read on for the specifications.

During the Lenovo Tech World conference in Beijing, the Chinese vendor showed
off a new wireless streaming hub that transfers your mobile content to HD TVs and other HDMI-capable screens. It’s also compatible with the majority of DLNA and Miracast enabled devices.

In addition to content stored on your device, the hub can be used to wirelessly send online content to your TV such as multiplayer games and movie streaming services. According to Lenovo, it boasts a transfer distance of up to 20 meters and is able to penetrate through two walls.

As with most streaming devices, it plugs into the HDMI output on your TV or monitor and receives signals via an antenna using dual frequency synchronized 2.4G and 5G. While primarily designed for Android devices (Android 4.3 and above) the device can also be used with DLNA-enabled Windows 8.1 and iOS products.

Here’s a look at the specs:
