Meeting Room AV

by Mike_Strahan_87 / February 7, 2013 3:59 AM PST

Moved to a new company, we have a meeting room that has no av. I need a suggestion to be able to add a TV/video monitor that I can get internet as well as access our in house computers. Any suggestions will be helpful, we are challenged in this area.

I've yet to see any TV/video monitor supply internet access to the other computers. I think you want the other computers to be able to send something to that display.

Why not any old HDTV and an AppleTV?

They are not PCs. They are TVs with added features to sell you programming like NetFlix and more. I am seeing folk think these smart TVs are "like a PC" or such. Nothing is farther from the truth.

There are a lot of small media boxes and even Android on a stick with a HDMI connector for such use. Figure about 99 bucks for Apple TV or the Android on a stick.
