Already preparing your presentation?
Note that there is a widescreen display.
Speakers should using PowerPoint 2016 and 2013 default to a 16:9 widescreen display. For other versions of PowerPoint, click on the “Design” tab. Click “Page Setup”. PowerPoint will default to Slides sized for: “On-screen Show (4:3)”. Change the setting to “On-screen Show (16:9) and click OK.
Apple Keynote users have a choice of creating the presentation in “Standard or Wide Aspect Ratio” If you have created the presentation in Standard Aspect Ratio, you can change it to Wide by choosing View: Inspector: Document and choosing Widescreen under Slide Size.
If you do not format your presentation in 16:9 then the presentation will fill the screen from top to bottom, but will display with black bars to the left and right of your slides.
