Hardware/Software for controlling multiple monitors

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My situation is this, I wish to have some TVs in my business to display different internet streams. I would like one computer to control 4-5 TVs either through HDMI or wireless HDMI and to show what content is being displayed on each TV on the monitor of the computer.

Basically from the included multi monitor support with Windows, you can Extend or Duplicate. I wish for it to be something like Extend but to be able to "peek" in on what is on the various TVs without having to walk to each one to make sure it's displaying the right content.

I would like to accomplish this without needing individual computers at each TV. Maybe a set-top box would be necessary but I wish to basically browse any stream from Twitch or Youtube. I'm not sure if there's enough support out there for such freedom from a set-top box. And also being able to control it from a central computer instead of having to "change the channel" on each TV individually.

Thanks for any help with this!

The only way to know, for sure, what's on the TVs is to look at them.
Otherwise how would you know they were even turned on?

If you can live with knowing what's being sent to them, windows can do that.
Just open a second window on the computer monitor that is the same website as the one being remotely displayed.

If you really want to "see" all of them, perhaps video cameras are the way to go.

I'm sure you can find $1,000 worth of "magical black boxes and software" that can do what you want, but do you really need that.
