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.
