What is Wi-Fi Direct?

    Wi-Fi Direct is a feature that allows audio and video content to be played back from a personal media player or mobile phone directly to a compatible TV without the need for a home network connection. Using a computer, wireless access point or cable is not necessary.

    It is a great way to share movies, pictures, and music when friends and family come over using the big, beautiful BRAVIA TV screen, instead of having everyone pass around or crowd around a smaller portable device.

    The Wi-Fi Direct feature supports the following wireless connections:

    • WPS Push Button
    • WPS Input PIN Code
    • WPA Key Input

    Your TV may require the latest system software (firmware) update to activate the Wi-Fi Direct feature. Updates are available from the menu of a TV that is connected to a high-speed Internet connection or downloaded using a computer.

    Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi Direct feature is not available on all Sony products. Televisions manufactured before January 2011 will not have this feature.
