Difference Between Screen Mirroring, Screencasting, and Dual Monitors

Suppose you need to share your mobile, desktop, or laptop screen with your teammates for their input. You can’t just pass around your personal device as it isn’t a convenient option for anyone involved. So, you search the internet for possible solutions to this problem. Ultimately, you’ll come across terms like screen mirroring, screencasting, and dual monitors.

While these tech-jargons may seem almost the same to a person who isn’t familiar with the terms, some basic features distinguish them from each other. The following section will explain how all these different technologies can work in your favor when you know their right purposes.

Screen Mirroring

As the name suggests, screen mirroring can be compared to when you look at your reflection in a mirror. This means, when you move your arm, your mirror reflection does the same. Similarly, when using the screen mirroring option, the other connected device shows precisely what you have on the original screen. However, unlike the glass mirror that horizontally flips your reflection, screen mirroring doesn’t do that. So, when you hear the term ‘mirroring,’ think of it as ‘copying’ instead.

You can use the portable wireless Kiperline Skyline Gen-9 monitor to connect your device through the HDMI cable port for sharp mirroring results. Its 15.6” 1080HDR display screen makes it convenient for you to perform your job well without facing any complications.

Screencasting

While screencasting is quite similar to similar mirroring, there is one vital difference between both terminologies. In screen mirroring, you can see both your device and your secondary device’s screens simultaneously. On the contrary, when you’re screencasting, the content you’re displaying is no longer available on both devices. 

For example, if you’re casting content from your smartphone to a TV screen, you wouldn’t have the option to see it displayed on your mobile anymore. This means, unlike screen mirroring, you’ll have to control everything from the TV screen afterward instead of the device you were initially using.

Dual monitors

Some desktop systems and laptops also allow for a dual-monitor setup, which means you can simultaneously connect two monitors to the same system. This dual-monitor functionality requires a video card with two ports for video-out, like HDMI, DVI, VGA, or Displayport. However, the best option is to use a portable monitor that you can easily connect through the HDMI port at any time, such as the Kiperline Skyline Gen-9.

Dual monitors are usually used for enhanced productivity and multitasking, such as easier cutting and pasting, product comparisons, image and video editing, and much more. Best of all, unlike the last two options, you can use both screens at the same time with a dual-monitor setup. You can think of it as if you’re using a single system but, rather than going back and forth from one tab to another, you now have two monitors side-by-side with different screens for productivity and convenience.
