How can I display an outlook calendar on a remote monitor?

We have several conference rooms located throughout our facility. We are looking for a way to mount a single display outside each conference room. The display would show the outlook calendar for that particular room. It would need to be updated dynamically so that any changes to the calendar would be reflected near real time. It must also be automated so that there is no user intervention required.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Put a computer with Outlook at each conf room. Share the calendars with the logged in user (or use Public folders). Switch off Cached Mode

The Computer idea got us going onto the solution. Here is what we did. We configured a Wyse 1200 terminal to connect to a terminal server. The Wyse terminal runs the wnos.ini to auto-logon. Outlook is configured to auto launch and defaults to the calendar for the conference room calendar. No keyboard, no mouse. Whenever someone schedules the conference room it is updated on the display within seconds. If management likes the setup we will be placing another 12 setups in four buildings.
