PowerPoint widget

We have purchased multiple screens and chromeboxes installed throughout our two US buildings.  Using Rise Vision has been a life saver in creating, posting and updating our KPI information but unfortunately we've hit a little snag - there is no widget currently offered that would allow us to directly upload our presentation in it's original PP form.  We can save in jpeg format or use Google slides but both have some issues.  The jpeg file has minor "stippling" around the lettering within the presentation and requires re-sizing of the presentation manually.  Google slides distorts the original presentation and also requires some manual manipulation.  Please consider creating a PowerPoint widget, it would make life with Rise Vision even more wonderful!  :)

Thank you!

Here is what we do with our powerpoint people. We ask them to be sure to have the design set at 16:9 widescreen and to save the file as a mp4. I think office 2010 and 2013 allows this. Each week they change and upload the file. They notify us for the change and we change the file on the screens. Windows is the only OS that allows the save the file to mp4. Also windows 10 saves tend to be bad or at least on the computer that i have tested this on. Also a true powerpoint widget will not happen because Microsoft doesn't provide an api that allows for this to happen. Now there are javascript apis to convert a powerpoint to a video which can be made into a widget but there not 100% accurate. Its better to do the conversion from powerpoint and have it done right then use it as a video. Works better that way for us. Thanks
