The LaTeX beamerposter package is an extension of the LaTeX beamer and the  
a0poster classes in order to create LaTeX posters, e.g. a DIN-A0 size LaTeX 
poster in landscape or portrait orientation. Furthermore it is possible 
to scale the poster fonts to your needs. 

The package allows you to benefit from the nice color box handling and 
alignment in the beamer class (e.g. with rounded corners and shadows) 
in order to create quite fast pretty conference posters.

    * scalable fonts using the fp and type1cm packages
    * posters in DIN-A0, DIN-A1, DIN-A2, DIN-A3, DIN-A4, and custom sizes 
      like double DIN-A0 possible
    * still applicable to custom beamer slides, e.g. 16:9 slides for a 
      widescreen (i.e. 1.78 aspect ratio)
    * orientation: landscape or portrait
    * debug mode

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.
