Hi,
Do you have a touch screen TV?
Just have to ask did you want this in Java /Android or something as the zone you chose is not multimedia ;)
The Aten  KVMP switch which I have and use where I have several computer towers connected to a 4 port KVMP switch I simply switch to each computer tower to one monitor or screen. I then use that system just like a normal desktop from one monitor one keyboard and one mouse
However I have to use a switch to change actual computer not the touch screen interactive.
Mine cost 370 dollars Australian.

It sounds as if you want to use your TV like a broadcast?
Multi Views
You want 4 or more individual computers?
Like PIP.
Picture in Picture Out in one screen?
A bit like the windows 8 desktop?
The more ports the high costs not sure if you get them over 4 ports maybe that takes you to a new level like a rack?
Could run into the thousands.
Example is the Aten
