My boss wants me to put some LCD screens around our business with general advertising, promotions, etc. In theory, it would be like playing the same powerpoint slideshow on all the screens.

What would be a good way to go about doing this. Are there LCDs that have a network jack? Is there a way to show that data on multiple screens?

Thanks for any feedback you can offer!

there are TVs that are ethernet capable, i don't know of any that do powerpoint...

you may want to do some googeling on "digital signage"...a lot of companies make products to do what you're wanting to do (cisco makes a nice system that can do a lot of really fun stuff with digital signage).

could also be as simple as getting an LCD TV (plain old LCD tv) and getting a miniPC attached to it that would run the powerpoint from there
