beamerposter – Extend beamer and a0poster for custom sized posters
The package enables the user to use
beamer style operations on a canvas of
the sizes provided by a0poster; font
scaling is available (using packages such as
type1cm if necessary).
In addition, the package allows the user to benefit from the nice colour box handling and alignment provided by the beamer class (for example, with rounded corners and shadows). Good looking posters may be created very rapidly.
Features include: – scalable fonts using the fp and type1cm packages; – posters in A-series sizes, and custom sizes like double A0 are possible; – still applicable to custom beamer slides, e.g. 16:9 slides for a wide-screen (i.e. 1.78 aspect ratio); – orientation may be portrait or landscape; – a ‘debug mode’ is provided.
