HDMI Port is the most common type of Port that can be found on any Television, whether it is Smart or Not.
Through HDMI Cable you can connect your Laptop, Android TV, Plugin Devices, XBOX, PS or many casting Devices to your TV, just Plug>Play & Enjoy.
Types of Devices to Convert TV to Smart TV-
HDMI is in itself a solution for converting TVs in Smart TVs as through an HDMI cable you can connect your Laptop to the Screen directly that helps to cast the screen without any other device and with that whatever you do on your Laptop is shown on big screen, even Screencasting can be done after doing it as you can connect your Phone to the Laptop with Screen Casting & the same screen will be displayed on your TV or whatever you do on your Phone.
All you need to do is that after connecting HDMI Cable to your Laptop simple take TVs Remote & Change Vision to HDMI from Setup box.
