Solved how to transmitt pc and tablet to a tv

Specs: Windows 7
I’m trying to get both an iPad and a Windows laptop to wirelessly transmit video to a TV. My user’s TV is NOT a smart TV. I know Apple can do this via an Apple TV (using HDMI) and Airplay but what about a PC? Also, this is for a business and we don’t want to turn this into a “Let’s stream movies and watch TV all day” situation.
Using the AirServer software on the PC I can mirror the iPad to the PC’s screen. Is there some way I can then transmit it wirelessly to the TV? Perhaps a HDMI-USD receiver?

The only way to transmit PC or laptop content wirelessly to a TV is if the TV has wireless built-in (Smart TV). PC/Laptop must also have wireless too of course.

The only exception is if you want to stream Netflix movies to a TV. The TV doesn't have to be a wireless model but it must have an HDMI port to accept a Chromecast wireless dongle.

✔ Best Answer
Yes there are wireless HDMI kits available (just google the term 'wireless HDMI' to see what's available near you). I've only ever tried one of these and the results weren't too bad apart from an annoying lag between the laptop and TV but being a cheapskate it was the cheapest one I could find so maybe higher priced ones will do a better job.
