Internet Box for TV Information Screens - Help
So, I've been tasked (again) with solving an "event monitor" solution for our building, and I could use the MacNN Forum's help.

Current Situation:
- 1080p Monitors
- HP thin clients running PowerPoint

The Problem:
- We can't schedule an on/off date/time for the slides (so they are regularly out of date)
- Slide submission isn't automated (basically, they email the slides, and that's a mess)
- The thin clients regularly have issues

My Solution:
- Very dumb internet browser boxes (need help here)
- WordPress where we have all the slides as individual posts (I've already built this) that refreshes every 15 minutes.

Help Needed:
- Does anyone know of an inexpensive web box (~$99 - $199) that when rebooted, would come back up to a web browser at full screen (kiosk mode perhaps).

This isn't urgent, but just throwing it out there.

Could you use Apple TVs and screen share from a central Mac using Airplay video mirroring?

Can you stream video to multiple sources?

Good question. Never tried it with video. Perhaps not.
