See the situation if you want to give presentation and HDMI cable of TV is not available or short in length that it is not possible to present from comfortable place. You can convert your presentations into video and copy it pendrive and play using HD TV’s USB port. Today most of the presentation room have HD TV’s and HD Smart TV’s for presentations and all these have USB ports to play videos. So you can comfortably give presentations and can also control (Play/Pause) using TV remote.

Some tips to remember when recording your presentation as a video:

  • You can record and time voice narration and laser pointer movements in your video.
  • You can control the size of the multimedia file and the quality of your video.
  • You can include animations and transitions in your movie.
  • Viewers do not need to have PowerPoint installed on their computers to watch it.
  • If your presentation contains an embedded video, the video will play correctly without your needing to control it.
  • Depending on the content of your presentation, creating a video may take some time. Lengthy presentations and presentations with animations, transitions, and media content will likely take longer to create. Fortunately, you can continue to use PowerPoint while the video is being created.
