    Hi all! Wasn't sure if this is the correct thread to post in but I recently started at this new company. Since I am the only one with any kind of tech background my boss put me in charge of this. Here is what I need to do.
    We recently got 3 new TVs that are not smart tvs just regular flat screen TVs with HDMI, Ethernet, USB, and regular Coax input. I have a desktop computer and need to be able to display employee schedules and open jobs on each TV. Each TV is for an individual tech. I've thought about just getting 3 laptops and plugging them directly into each via HDMI bu that would take to long to update each one every time the schedule changes. So what I need is some idea on how I can control all 3 TVs from a single laptop or desktop computer. This would be simple if they all needed to display the same thing, however each one would need to show the specifics for each technician going into the field. So far I've looked at RiseVision but I couldn't really see how that would work. I pretty sure I would need to get some kind of wireless hook up for each TV but I'm unsure if I woul dbe able to control all 3 from one computer. Any help on how to set upo this mini network would be greatly apprewciated and I apologies for the long rant. Thank you in advance and if this ois the wrong thread let me know and I will move it.

    First, there is Ethernet on those TV's. You need to find out how that is supposed to used.

    I would get 3 video cards and put them in a tower PC. Then Windows should be able to display to all 3 screens. Then you could use something as simple as Windows's included Write to create documents in large fonts. Display the 3 copies of documents, drag them onto each screen.
