The resolution of the slide show in the Powerpoint Office Web App seems to have been lowered. Propably to reduce latency and bandwith usage over the network.

I am wondering if it possible to tune the resolution/graphic display option so that the slide show is displayed more nicely.

In Central Admin > Service Application > Powerpoint Viewing Service I found some options but none for adjusting such a setting.

But maybe it is not possible at all to change this behaviour?

Unfortunately there aren't any configuration options for this. If you need it to display better, you would need to actually open it in PowerPoint rather than the web viewer.

Ok, that's what I also thought. Well, it isn't as if the lowered resolution is that bad. – Shihan Sep 21 '11 at 6:35
