Digital Menu Display: How to display on 5 TVs via wifi

by Danoneill33 / October 21, 2014 10:42 PM PDT

Hi,

I'm struggling to find a solution to this:

I'm opening a fast food restaurant and plan to have 5 Samsung TVs (with usb ports) mounted behind the counter to display our menu to the customers.

I can design these menus as images and display them using USB Keys.

However, I also have the option to have my menu images hosted online. With this method I can edit from a remote location and use animations etc.

How can I display several web hosted menu images on multiple TVs? I will have a wifi network and have been experimenting with Google Chromecast but that only seems to be effective for screen mirroring 1 laptop for 1 tv.

I need an effective way of displaying 5 different web hosted menu images on 5 different tvs via a wifi network.

I'd be extremely grateful for any suggestions.

Daniel

Really appreciate the reply.

I had a look at that website and while it looks impressive I think it would really inflate the cost of my little project.

I'm planning to use standard consumer TVs, 42" size that retail for about $500 each.

The additional cost for a smart TVs is significant. Plus I have a Samsung smart TV at home which can't cope any better with my problem unfortunately.

If I must, I'll just use images loaded on USB keys, it just won't be as flexible or impressive for the customer.

Thanks again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
