Connect to LED TV via WiFi

I have a fairly standard Windows Domain TCP/IP network with Wireless Access throughout with Thin Clients connecting to a Remote Desktop Services Server.
We have a new LED TV we would like to provide access to a User via Wireless to project their own screen, or perhaps another screen (i.e. Laptop via WiFi connects to Desktop on LAN, Desktop on LAN is connected to TV HDMI and Desktop on LAN starts RDS Session to access Server Resources.
Workstations are Lenovo Tony range, running Windows 7 Pro.

You could probably use a software like GotoMyPC or Teamviewer. That way screen can be easily shared or projected.

We are looking to use something like RDP where possible, rather than introduce another piece of software where possible.

Are you saying to run TeamViewer on PC connected to TV then remote into that PC?

There is another possibility using something like these:

Or if the laptops have IntelĀ® Wireless Display chip inside then:

Or maybe a Wireless Multimedia Player connected to your PC.
D-LINK makes some, but some users are no always happy according with Amazon reviews, , maybe not so easy to set-up:

http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-DSM-320-Wireless-Player-802-11g/dp/B0001WXTF0
http://www.amazon.com/D-Link-Wireless-HD-Media-Player/dp/B000A4AVQO

These are only ideas, you have to check specifically each type to see if they are able of PC to TV wireless or just internet streaming as ROKU or Boxee Box...
The idea is of wireless multimedia player which can stream from local wifi network, meaning any laptop or a local wireless hard disk, server...

There are probably also some other companies:

The new TVs, some of them, have Wifi incorporated with the possibility to stream from local wireless LAN, NAS. They cost 500-600 euro...up to 1000, depending by screen size.
