I work in an establishment ( a casino) that has monitors placed all around the property.
At the managers desk in one department there is a workstation where the can control what appears on each monitor in their area through a very primitive/simple GUI. i assume each monitor has a specific IP address on the network.
A specific department wants to do is create a program that will run on their workstation that they can send to monitors of their choice.
the key is that once the "output" is determined at the workstation and it is "sent" to the choice monitor(s) the control screen will be minimized in order to be able to use that workstation for other things
The question is:
How is something like this implemented?
how should the program be written...as a web page/script?
...an .exe that resides on the main server somehow?
Yes, we could ask the IT department, but they arent very personable/helpful and this is an "extra" program that will help only one department, IT isnt interested other than doing enough to get what we have " developed" working, its up to us to figure it out. ( these guys still run IE 6 on the network)
We have the ok to do this, just need to know exactly what we need to make it work.
Thanks for any information, hope i explained it enough and it makes sense.
