New Standard Lets Devices Share Hardware Components Over Wi-Fi
MediaTek today announced CrossMount, a new standard that lets devices such as phones, tablets, PCs, and TVs make specific hardware and/or software components available to other nearby devices via Wi-Fi. One example is your smartphone making its sound output available to your TV, so you could use your smartphone and earbuds as wireless headphones for your TV. The smartphone could also make its camera available to a smart TV, for video conferencing. CrossMount is based on UPnP technology, and works over Wi-Fi Direct, or over a Wi-Fi network. MediaTek is forming an alliance to drive industry-wide support for the standard. The company is aiming to have Android-based devices supporting CrossMount on the market by the end of the year.
