Windows 7: Need recommendations on remote screen setup

Need recommendations on remote screen setup

I am under a time constraint and need to see if there are any solutions. I wasn't sure where else to post this, so here it is..

I need to setup a system where multiple screens in various locations are displaying the same thing (same idea as how big stores have multiple monitors displaying the exact same deals etc throughout the building). However, I can't use a video cable to wire these displays to a computer as these screens are at remote locations.
One screen goes in the lunch room and the other goes in a processing plant and will display the current work orders to the employees. Both the lunch office and the processing plant are connected to the same network as the administration office.

Any ideas on how to set this up? The only thing that I can think of is to have a thin-client at these locations and to have them remotely display into the computer that is 'hosting' this information (e.g. VNC Viewer, radmin etc)

Also I am looking for recommendations on a 60 inch screen that will able to last in a hot, dusty industrial environment. Any help is appreciated.
