Miracast is a wireless technology that allows content on an Android device running on at least Android 4.2 to be duplicated on TV. This allows content to be viewed on a much larger display and is great for watching HD movies, playing games, or surfing the web. The technology is dependent on the Android device it is paired to so if the device goes in sleep mode the screen on the TV will also go black.
