16:9 powerpoint

 

In order to accommodate wider screens and HD formats, the default size for PowerPoint 2013 slides is now 16:9. The recent ReadyTalk visual enhancements not only support this new format, but the collapsible controls create a bigger more enhanced experience for your presentation. This new format ultimately is a better fit, since it no longer adjusts the larger slides to the older, boxier 4:3 size. 

If you prefer to  keep your slides in the 4:3 format, feel free as the system will continue to support it. If you would like to experience the new change however, you will need to reload your 16:9 formatted PowerPoint into the ReadyTalk meeting interface. To do so, follow the instructions below:

  • If you need to convert your slides to the new version within PowerPoint:
    • Go to Design tab> Select Slide> Widescreen (16:9)
    • Hit Save
  • Next, open your ReadyTalk meeting controls through Quick Launcher or Conference Center
  • Delete your old slides from the Presentation Bar
  • Upload your new PowerPoint deck to your ReadyTalk interface, by clicking the
    “Insert & Manage” button on the tool bar and following the prompts.

Please note, if you have already uploaded a 16:9 slide deck prior to this enhancement, you will need to re-upload your slides again to fully see the change.

How has the new 16:9 format helped your meetings? Let us know by leaving a note below.
