This is only supported on some recent laptop models and you also require a TV adapter from Netgear and a TV with HDMI or composite A/V input.

Intel Wireless Display is now available on more than 25 systems based on Intel Core i3 or Intel Core i5 processors from manufacturers like ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba.
