Improving quality of powerpoint presentations on pocket projectors (from onboard memory)
- 09 Dec, 2010
One method is by creating a video of your powerpoint files using free software called EM Free Powerpoint Video Converter which is readily available online. This software makes it quick and easy to convert even for multiple files at once from not only ppt to jpg, bmp etc but also to video formats!
Once converted, just save the video, e.g as a WMV or AVI, to the projector’s memory. You can then use the ppt video, simply pausing to stop/start the slides/video. Its also worth making your font sizes bigger and using a bolder black text to improve it even further.
Alternatively you can even:
- connect to a smartphone and use the composite cables supplied to playback direct from your phone OR
- Use the VGA cable and a small notebook laptop for ultra portability to play ppt direct from the laptop
The Screencast software is a good and very quick file conversion solution. You can download it here.
Other software customers have also used Handbrake software as an alternative although this is not something we have tested ourselves.
