Yesterday, at the hackathon kickoff, the slide presentation feature worked great.

One nit is that the resolution of the processed slides is a bit low.
The slides came over at 720x405 (*) PNGs.  While it is generally great that the files are so small (30–50 kB) and use so little network capacity, there were a few slides with images on them that had print that was no longer very well readable.

Maybe this can be notched up one √2, to 1024x576.  Most slides these days are still built to be useful on a 1024xnnn projector.  While this is twice as many pixels as 720xnnn, PNG will probably compress away large parts of that increase.

Grüße, Carsten

(*) if you know about the history of TV, the number 405 makes one think about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/405-line_television_system — but that is just a coincidence and would have been only 376i really anyway.
