Introduction to Intel® Pro
Wireless Display
As of writing (Jan 2014) Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Pro WiDi) technology is not yet
intended for broad deployment into production at an enterprise. However, enterprises are
increasingly aware of the benefits of Intel® WiDi and want to take advantage of these
capabilities in the workplace. However, consumer and enterprise requirements are very
different. Companies typically have more stringent demands for data security, and often
must comply with regulatory requirements to protect sensitive information. An unsecure
wireless connection to a projector or television might create unwanted risk. Businesses
also have to consider life-cycle management and scalability when deploying technologies
like WiDi. Intel® Pro WiDi) builds on the capabilities of Intel® WiDi and provides business
with the tools and technologies to bring this capability to the enterprise. This document is
intended to guide you through the process of performing a limited pilot of Intel® Pro WiDi
technology.
1.1
Target Audience
This document is intended for IT administrators and professionals planning to evaluate
Intel Pro WiDi in a limited Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment within an enterprise.
1.2
Intel® Wireless Display versus Intel Pro Wireless
Display
Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi)
technology allows users to wirelessly
connect to certified Intel WiDi receivers,
such as large screen monitors and
projectors. The Intel application utilizes
Intel graphics and WiFi components to
deliver Blu-Ray* and gaming quality and
performance without wires in the living
room. The Intel Pro WiDi user
experience, as shown in the graphic
below, is enabled when Intel WiDi
software (starting with version 4.2) is
installed on an Intel® vPro™ technology
system and then connects to an Intel
Pro WiDi certified receiver. Intel WiDi is
a Miracast* solution with premium
performance enhancements based on Intel
technologies.
Figure 1: Intel Pro WiDi vs. Intel WiDi
Intel vPro technology PCs are an essential component for Intel Pro WiDi but for clarity it is
worth noting that it is not required that Intel® iAMT (Intel Active Technology
Management) is activated or enabled on the target PCs.
1.2.1
Client Operating System
It is recommended that the POC be run on Windows* 7 PCs.
As of writing (Jan 2014) Intel Pro WiDi features on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are still
under development.
Note that the Intel WiDi application needs to be installed on Windows 7 and Windows 8.0
PCs but this application is not to be installed on Windows 8.1. The WiDi functionality has
been replaced by a “Project” option on the “Devices” charm on the Windows 8.1 UI.
1.2.2
Intel Pro WiDi Usages
The experience of using Intel Pro WiDi will be different depending on the client (laptop or
mobile device) and the receiver (adapter, projector, or display) being used. Figure 2 below
is useful in determining what capabilities you can include in your POC test plans.

Figure 2: Intel Pro WiDi user experience based on transmiter and receiver infrastructure
Until version 4.2, Intel WiDi (based on Miracast) had been developed for consumer
environments where the optimum user experience is to quickly connect with as little
interaction as possible, and to block any other user from accessing a display once a user
has connected. The security requirements are not as stringent as required in enterprise as
the connection is simply for displaying content, which is usually not of a confidential
nature (e.g. photos, movies and games). In most cases the displays are far enough away
from public spaces that the wireless connection may not be intercepted. All day battery life
is not as critical in a living room or home entertainment environment, so for consumers,
Intel optimizations are positioned for their quality and performance improvements.
Table 1 below lists the features enabled when an Intel vPro technology platform is used
with an Intel Pro WiDi certified receiver.

Intel Pro WiDi Requirements
This chapter defines the overall requirements for implementing Intel Pro WiDi. Additional
requirements information may be included in the setup sections for individual components.
2.1
Overview
Intel Pro WiDi consists of several components, all of which are required to experience the
full benefits of Intel Pro WiDi. As of writing, there are no Pro WiDi adapters available on
the market so while an end-to-end POC incorporating the adapter-side features of Pro
WiDi may not be possible, this document will comprehend what a full POC could look like,
while calling out what can actually be tested.
The illustration below provides a high level visual overview of the deployment topology for
end to end testing of Intel Pro WiDi.
Figure 3: Intel Pro WiDi Depolyment Topology
2.2
Adapters for Intel Pro WiDi
As mentioned earlier, Intel Pro WiDi adapters are not yet available on the market.
However, Intel is working with Adapter, TV and Projector OEMs and has defined some of
the features expected to be present in a “Pro” display device. That said, Intel cannot make
guarantees with respect to OEM device features or availability. For the purposes of this
document, the features outlined will reflect what Intel expects a “Pro” device to support.
2.3

Infrastructure Considerations
This chapter contains some points to consider before deploying Intel Pro WiDi for the pilot.
3.1
WiFi-Direct
You must enable WiFi-Direct in your environment. See Chapter 6.
3.2
Using Intel Pro WiDi with a VPN
Depending on your infrastructure settings, you may need to connect to WiDi before
initiating a VPN connection.
3.3
DFS Considerations
For regulatory reasons, Intel Pro WiDi does not operate on WiFi channels reserved for
radar use (also known as “DFS channels”).
To avoid potential use of a DFS channel, you may enable DFS roaming using the Intel
PROSet IT Admin Tool. When DFS roaming is enabled and the client system is currently
connected to WLAN using a DFS channel, the client attempts to ‘roam’ and locate the
same SSID on a different channel. If successful, the client connects to the WLAN and WiDi
using the new channel. If not, Intel Pro WiDi displays an error message and does not
connect to the wireless display.
If your WLAN is enabled for using DFS channels, as a temporary solution, you may need to
do one of the following to accommodate the pilot:
3.4

Turn off 5 GHz on the client

Disable DFS on the WAPs near the Rx

Add a non-DFS WAP near the Rx
Intel Pro WiDi and WiFi Interaction
When a WiFi-enabled PC comes within range of a WiFi access point, it initiates a WiFi
connection before it can create an Intel Pro WiDi connection. Since Intel Pro WiDi can only
connect using the same channel and band that the WiFi connection uses, the WiFi
connection may impact performance by creating additional traffic on the network.
4
Display Adapter Setup
Until Intel Pro WiDi Certified Adapters are available, POCs will need to be run using an
adapter designed for the consumer market. There are a number of adapters, TVs and
projectors that support Intel WiDi but we strongly recommend using an adapter that has
recent firmware available to ensure your POC is as effective as possible.
Some adapters to consider are the ActionTec ScreenBeam Pro (which has Gen4 firmware
available) and others on Gen3 firmware include the Viewsonic WPG-370, the Netgear PTV3000 and the IOGear GWAVR as well as two projectors from Dell, the M900HD and the
S520.
4.1
Physical Adapter requirements
The Intel WiDi adapter will require an A/C power source and either a VGA or HDMI
connection to the display device. Pro WiDi manageable adapters may also requie an RJ45
connection for remote manageability.
Specific implementations of the VGA and HDMI interfaces on display devices will vary. For
example, connection auto-sensing and timeout behavior when connected to a WiDi
adapter may need to be characterized before initiating the POC and may even be specific
to the wiring within particular conference-rooms. Conference-room switchgear, repeaters
and signal adapters in the VGA or HDMI path can also affect the success of the POC. It
should be decided if sound is to be included in the scope of the POC.
It is important to realize that once a WiDi session is established and active, Intel® Pro
WiDi encrypts the data stream creating a secure tunnel between the client and WiDi
adapter. However, if no session is established it is possible for anyone with a WiDi-enabled
client and line-of-sight to the display to establish a session and stream their own content.
This limitation makes the consumer versions of WiDi unacceptable for use in public areas.
5
Client Setup
This chapter describes how to set up the client platforms to deliver the Intel Pro WiDi
remote display user experience. This is a “Best Known Configuration” that describes the
intended outcome of the client setup process. When you have completed the client setup
process, you should have a client system that is configured with the “Best Known
Configuration.”
5.1
Installing the WiDi Software Stack
This section describes how to install Intel Pro WiDi and the required device drivers on the
client system(s).
Note: It is best practice to remove any previous versions of WiDi software, Intel PROSet/Wireless
software, and the Intel HD Graphics Driver on the client before installing the new software
stack.
Note: For best results the drivers and software must be installed in the following order:
1. Intel HD Graphics Driver.
2. Intel PROSet/Wireless Software with Intel My WiFi Technology (Intel MWT).
3. Intel WiDi Software.
Step 1: Install Intel HD Graphics Driver
Install the Intel HD Graphics Driver by following the steps below. To perform this step you
must have administrative rights to the client system and have installed the platform
software components previously defined in the guide. Navigate to the drive and
directory location containing the Intel HD Graphics Driver installation files and
double click Setup.exe.
After the client system reboots, the graphics driver installation is complete.
Step 2: Install Intel PROSet Wireless Software
Install the Intel PROSet/Wireless Software with Intel MWT by following the steps below. To
perform the steps in this section, you must have administrative rights to the client system
and have installed the platform software components previously defined in the guide. Your
installation should closely resemble the example below.
Navigate to the drive and directory location containing the Intel PROSet Wireless
installation files and double click Autorun.exe.
Step 3: Install Intel WiDi Application
This section describes how to install the Intel WiDi application on the client system(s).
Notes:
1. Both the Intel HD Graphics Driver and the Intel PROSet/Wireless Driver MUST be
installed prior to installing Intel WiDi software to meet platform detection
requirements in the Intel WiDi software.
2. Intel WiDi requires Microsoft .Net 4.0 framework to be installed prior to installing
the WiDi application.
3. To perform a large-scale batch install using a script, see Section 5.2.
The Intel WiDi software release is a single-file-based installer. Install the software as
follows: Copy the Intel WiDi Setup.exe file to an accessible drive. The file doesn’t have to
be on the PC hard drive but must be an accessible drive that is writable so the installation
files can be extracted. For example, CDROM disk installs are not supported.
Depending on your firewall rules you may need to configure your firewall to allow WiDi
traffic.
5.2

Intel Pro WiDi Logging
Use the information in this section to set up logging for Intel Pro WiDi.
8.1.1
Installer Logging
During installation, the Intel WiDi installer creates a MSI Install log and WDL log in the
following location:

C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Temp\MSI<number>.log

C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\WiDiSetupLog.<timestamp>.wdl
8.1.2
Enabling Session Runtime Logging
1. Exit the Intel WiDi application.
2. Launch Regedit.exe.
3. Navigate to the Intel WiDi application section by looking for:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intel Corporation\Intel WiDi
4. Create a new DWORD (32) key named
LogEnable.
5. Set the value of LogEnable = 1
6. Exit Regedit.exe.
Log files are created for each Intel WiDi session, for the duration of the Intel WiDi
application being launched, and then is closed. Log files are created immediately after
launching the Intel WiDi application and can be opened at any time. Log files are stored in
the following location:
C:\Users\<userID>\AppData\Local
Log files are named using this format:
WiDiLog.<date>.<time>.wdl
8.2
Common Issues
Common issues and resolutions are given in this section. For more detailed
troubleshooting steps, refer to the extensive help file provided with the Intel WiDi
Software application.
Issue
Solutions
The PC Doesn’t Seem to be Connecting to the Adapter
 At the PC, verify that WiFi is switched on.
 Antivirus / Firewall software may be blocking Intel WiDi software. Add the
Intel WiDi application (“widiapp”) to the software’s white list.
 Disconnect from the WiFi network and connect to Intel WiDi without a WiFi
connection.
Issue
Solutions
Wireless Network Reception is Poor
Best Known Methods (BKMs)
 Disconnect and exit VPN and connect to Intel WiDi without a VPN or WiFi
connection.
 Double check the internet connection speed using 2Wire’s speed test or geospecific equivalent.
(http://www.2wire.com/bandwidth/meter.php?kbps=8256.5)
 Leave the notebook stationary and refrain from moving it for best wireless
reception / performance. 802.11x is not a “mobile” networking technology
like GSM or CDMA.
 If wireless reception/performance is borderline good, try rotating the
notebook 90 degrees and see if reception/performance improves.
 The presence of wireless networks during simple SSID (infrastructure) scan
doesn’t guarantee a channel free from high traffic/interference. Use a
spectrum analyzer like the Meta Geek* Wi-Spy* and Chanalyzer Pro* (see
Appendix B) to show actual traffic on a given channel/network.
Steps to determine if streaming problems are related to wireless interference:
1. Launch and connect to the adapter for Intel Pro WiDi.
2. Use WindowsK+P to select Extend mode.
3. Play the sample video file, Wildlife, in Media Player and move that window
to the secondary display.
4. From the Primary display launch the task manager by right-clicking on the
task-bar and select Start Task Manager.
5. Select the Networking Tab. On the lower part of this window there is a list
of network connection. The network connection with a consistent activity
level will be the PAN network.
6. Monitor the Link Speed (PHY rate) column.
7. If the Link Speed varies but stays above 36Mbps. then you should see no
streaming issues. If the Link speed drops under ~24Mbps, you should see
streaming issues. Note that if the Link speed falls too low then you will see
the green and pink block artifacts.
Issue
Solutions
No Video is Displayed on TV
 Check if TV / adapter are powered on.
 Check if correct input on TV is selected.
 Reset adapter.
 Replace adapter.
Issue
Solutions
PC Desktop Does not Display on TV
 Verify that the correct security code was entered into the Intel WiDi
Software for the adapter you are connecting to.
 Reset the adapter.
 Verify that the PC screen is set to one of the following supported screen
resolutions; 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1366x768, 1440x900,
1600x900, or 1920x1080.
Issue
Solutions
I can’t get a good picture using 2.4GHz
 Try changing the WiFi channel used by Intel Pro WiDi. In general, 2.4 GHz
channels 1, 6, or 11 work best.
 You can set the network channels using Intel MWT software. Open My
WiFi software on the laptop, select Profiles, select Intel Wireless PAN
(preset), and then click Edit. Select the Advanced tab and select the
default channel from the drop down.
 Use inSSIDer* software (see Appendix B) to determine which specific
channel has the least congestion (as defined by the least number of
wireless networks on that channel).

Conclusion
9.1
Intel Pro WiDi POC management
Intel Pro WiDi is an exciting technology with great potential to improve user experience in
the enterprise. As Intel Pro WiDi matures and Pro WiDi Certified adapters become
available these potential opportunities can be made available in production deployments.
Until then, it will be important to explore what Intel WiDi can provide while managing
expectations amongst IT and the user base with respect to what can be delivered today.
Appendix A Known Issues
Issue
Description
DFS Roaming
Windows 7: Enable DFS roaming either through the Intel PROSet IT Admin
tool, or by creating a registry key, shown below:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel Corporation\Intel
WiDi\Enterprise]
"DFS Roaming Enabled”=dword:00000001
Windows 8: DFS roaming is not yet functional. To avoid DFS errors, set the
NIC on the client platform to connect only to 2.4 GHz. This can be
accomplished by setting the WiFi NIC to 802.11g.
Stale scan entries
Switching between users can cause stale entries to be cached. The following
registry setting prevents stale entries, but as a result the adapter list may not
be complete when a scan is performed. The user may need to select scan
multiple times to show the available adapters.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intel Corporation\Intel WiDi]
“FilterStaleAdapters”=dword: 00000001
Fast Handoff
Fast Handoff requies a “Pro” adaptor and cannot be tested at this time.
Windows 8
Intel Pro WiDi feature support in Windows 8
Windows 8.1
Intel WiDi capability is built into Windows 8.1. Intel Pro WiDi features have
not been implemented at this time. Intel WiDi 4.x will not install on Windows
8.1 and the Intel WiDi user interaction is through a “Project” option on the
“Devices” charm when swiping-in from the right-hand side.
Antivirus Software
Antivirus applications may block ports required by the Intel WiDi application.
When this issue occurs, the Intel WiDi application indicates that it is
connecting but never completes the connection. After one to two minutes, the
system returns to the “Ready for connection” screen. To prevent this issue,
the “WiDiapp.exe” must be added to the list of trusted applications.
Here is an example:
McAfee* Enterprise HIPS* (Host Intrusion Prevention System) requires the
“WiDiapp.exe” to be added to the list of trusted applications.
McAfee LiveSafe*
Security Center
McAfee LiveSafe Security Center Version 12.1 has a known issue that blocks
TCP Ports used by the WiDi application. This issue is fixed in McAfee LiveSafe
Security Center Version 12.8. Upgrade to Version 12.8.
Issue
Description
VPN
The WiDi subnet should be excluded from the VPN routing table.
 If NOT using the exclude "Local LAN Access" capability, add a static
exclusion to "192.168.x.x" in order to support Intel WiDi.
Note: Note: This might be considered a security risk and personal firewall
settings should be modified to allow only specific ports\protocols on
this subnet (ingress\egress).
 If using "Local LAN Access", verify that the VPN client can adjust to new
subnets post connection establishment. If the "Local LAN Access" is not
dynamic during VPN connection, add a static exception to the routing table
and exclude 192.168.x.x.
 Cisco AnyConnect* 3.1.04072 now supports dynamic updates to the host
routing table. If you are using Cisco AnyConnect, update to 3.1.04072 to
avoid VPN issues.
