Network Projector for Windows, any take?


Linux based devices can be used as powerful appliances.
One of them is a network projector.
All new versions of MS-Windows offer the option to "Connect to a Network Projector".
This device may be used to upgrade some old hard wired projectors and to use a regular TV set as a computer screen for presentations.
Any one knows about a this kind of 'server'. (I understand that the projector is a client and the client is the server).
My understand is that the Microsoft protocol is based on RDP, so xrdp /rdesktop may have most of the bits required.
There is a sample projector for Windows (CE) embedded on MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) but is highly proprietary.
I appreciate any information about the subject,
fcm

Hello and welcome to start.

There would be a very small user base for this task but here you go.

Do you have a network projector?

Could use a virtual machine of some ms product.

Ask Epson to fix their Iprojection app for linux.

Windows projector using a linux device

I'm not sure if there is an small base. The fact that the option 'connect to a network projector' is on every new windows based device, tell me that a few may be interested in using this function.
I have the MS bits for the WEC700 and WEC800 embedded, but they will turn the box into Windows and not Linux: will miss the flexibility.
The code is very tied to MS that is hard to make and abstraction and recover the protocol.
A promising device is ChromeCast, however is focused on google products. Will be awesome if you can use this, or a similar device, to connect your Windows laptop to a TV as a remote projector.
I think that keeping the dialog open, someone will show up either a commercial or GPL option for this windows compatible projector project...

Do you own a networked projector? Have you heard of anyone using linux with one?
