Hello,
Not sure, if this question belongs here, but after scouring the internet for the answer, I am left a bit flustered.
So, is it possible using a laptop (for example) to connect to three (or two) TV's (Smart TV's)?
Asking because our workplace is planning on using three TV's that would connect to a single device and would be used for displaying certain types of information on different displays.
Is it possible, and how?
Thank you
 
Not that simple a question. So called smart tv have programs that allow you to display stuff via network or wifi but this varies greatly between devices.

You could I guess use a HDMI cable to all the tv to get the display but you would need some box between the laptop and the tv since most laptops only have 1 at most HDMI port.

I agree with Bill001g, the laptop only has one hdmi 1.4 port, you would have to look at the proposed tv's to see what connections they have. More than likely, you would need a HDMI splitter. This is a decent article on how to.
Thanks, but as mentioned, I would need to connect to it wirelessly, without HDMI/DP/DVI etc

Is it the same info on each screen, or different?
How far away are these from each other?
So, lets say the screens have different views (one has an excel sheet, the other word, the third powerpoint) and they are separate but in the same room.

So...

How about a tiny HTPC type thing. Intel NUC or Beelink.
Small enough to mount behind one of the TVs, invisible.
Get one with 2-3 HDMI outputs.
1 HDMI cable to each TV. Creative wiring, color, or cable run, and that wire is near invisible.
Control it remotely via something like TinyVNC or TeamViewer.

There are quite a number of wireless HDMI TX & RX sets available.

E.g. (not a recommendation or endorsement for any product):

I had a set a few years ago. Cumbersome and required more wires and cables than what is often shown. Did not really work either.

Before buying anything, read the User Guide/Manual as appropriate and plan out the installation(s).

What is "clean and neat" in the ads may not be so in reality.

Be sure to read the RMA requirements.,....

You can use Miracast which is built into windows 10.

I did this to watch a video on my laptop onto my friend's roku box. Works fine.

Here's a good howto guide: https://www.airdroid.com/screen-mirror/casting-to-roku-from-windows-10/

Other devices such as Chromecast support Miracast as well. Nothing to buy on the laptop side as long as you have a new enough laptop.

To watch it on 3 tv's, I think you'll need an HDMI splitter to split the signal off the ROKU box. If the displays are really far apart and you can't run HDMI cables, you can buy ethernet or wireless hdmi splitters, but they are pricey(several hundred dollars).

Also, you can get something like an EZcast which can Miracast to multiple devices and creates a wireless multi display, again not cheap: https://ezcast-pro.com/ The dongle is about $140 and since it's a dongle the range will be very limited. Probably fine if you're taking over a stage and have a couple large tv's spread around at the audience. The larger router looking device is $300 with a bit more range. Also, you'll need to get a roku or something if the TV is not new enough to support Miracast. Almost every tv that supports screen casting will support miracast.
