Graphics Talk: Week Five

What we covered:


We took a look at working in Teams. We found a lot of problems and we highlighted some real strengths. We ran some scenarios that we could encounter in the wild and come up with some answers but Teams still has some issues that make it a challenge to use.


I’m still frustrated by it. But the general roundup is this:

  • Sharing the PPT file itself from Sharepoint or Onedrive is the cleanest experience yet in virtual graphics
  • Fonts MUST be embedded
  • Video still has the pause/play locally issue
  • There’s a window in the meeting details window that in conjunction with the earlier find makes it closer to “safe” but…

We all agreed, smooth transitions, smooth fonts, and near-perfect pixel placement. If our job is to get the cleanest signal to the control room, whether that’s in the next room or across the country this setup has promise.

This is option 1 that you need to address

Special thank you to all of the participants each week. This is more useful than I could have imagined.
