Everything that goes on the digital messageboards needs to be in a 16x9 aspect ratio. If you have a Powerpoint slide to post, go to Design > Page Setup and set the slide size to 16x9. If you have a multiple slide presentation, you must set up the timing in Powerpoint under “Transitions” so that it will progress through the slides automatically.
Once your content is in the correct format, send it to Lon Jarvis (email@example.com) and specify which screens you want it on (small message boards or large video wall). If posting to the large video wall, bear in mind that the screen frames in the middle of the display will obscure some content if not laid out appropriately.
