We'd like to set up a monitor in each of our employee's offices that has their personal "dashboard" displayed (just a web browser showing a special URL for their stuff), for 8 employees.
Is it possible to do this by having a single machine in a server closet somewhere that is sending out 8 independent video feeds (VGA, DVI, or HDMI) ?
I was thinking of something like OSX or Linux workspaces, where we could just have Firefox open in each workspace, and each workspace/firefox would show the dashboard web page for that employee video feed. Then each workspace would be sent out via a different video output cable?
Anyone ever tried something like this? I was hoping something could be cobbled together with off-the-shelf hardware and software, rather than purchasing some expensive custom video distribution system.
