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.
