Does anyone have a working digital signage solution that includes Miracast? The objective being to send a phone/tablet/laptop desktop to the large display.
I see ways to cobble it together from AirParrot and whatnot - just curious how well it works.

I am a big fan of xibo: Xibo.org.uk, we use it for the display in our lobby on a $500 Flat screen, we just hook up a laptop with an HDMI cable and set xibo to run on startup. we just have it running on an apache vhost. Even
better: they have a python based client that should work on the pi.
