Apple TV

Apple TV is a digital media receiver developed by Apple Company. It is a network appliance designed to play content from iTunes Store, Hulu, YouTube, Netflix, iCloud, etc. onto a high-definition widescreen TV. With the help of iTunes, Mac and Windows users can also sync their media files on computer to watch on TV.

Apple TV 3 is the newest version, which added support for playing movies and TV shows from iTunes in 1080p. With this stunning device, you can enjoy everything you want on your HDTV wirelessly, including movies, TV shows, music, photos and sports/game videos.

Have you considered that this tiny thing could be your great help for PowerPoint presentation too? Sync your PowerPoint presentation to large-screen TV so that you don’t need to bring your laptop with you all the time. Because PowerPoint formats (.ppt, .pps, .pptx, .ppsx) are not supported by Applet TV 3 actually, so we need to convert PowerPoint to Apple TV supported video formats first.

First let’s check out what video formats Apple TV 3 supports:

  • H.264 video: up to 1080p, 30 frames per second, High or Main Profile level 4.0 or lower, Baseline profile level 3.0 or lower with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
  • MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
  • Motion JPEG (M-JPEG): up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

In short, we can say Apple TV support M4V, MP4 and MOV file format in H.264, MPEG-4 codec. After you have transformed PowerPoint to video, it’s time to sync it to Apple TV 3 using iTunes.

Microsoft Office 2013 Supports ODF 1.2, Strict Open XML and PDF Editing

It is true that anything related to Microsoft Office will become big news to millions of Office users all over the world. Three years after the release of Microsoft Office 2010, the new Office 2013 has been officially announced in July 16 with lots of new features like new Metro UI, add online picture and video directly, saving PowerPoint as MP4 video. The recent Office 2013 news indicates that Microsoft will add support for ODF 1.2, Strict Open XML documents and PDF editing.

ODF, short for Open Document Format, is a file format specification created by OASIS, an industry standards group. Its purpose is to create a set of standardized file formats that is XML-based, achievable, not written specifically for any specific vendor’s products, and can be freely implemented by anyone. The newest OpenDoument 1.2 was approved as an OASIA standard on September 29, 2011, featuring RDF-based formula, a spreadsheet formula based on OpenFormula, support digital signatures and other features suggested by the public.

Microsoft Office 2013

The most common filename extensions used for OpenDocument documents are:

.odt and .fodt for word processing (text) documents

.ods and .fods for spreadsheets

.odp and .fodp for presentations

.odb for databases

.odg and .fodg for graphics

.odf for formulae, mathematical equations

ODF formats are the default formats of open-source Office programs like OpenOffice, LibreOffice, etc. The support of ODF 1.2 makes transferring OpenDocument files to Office 2013 seamlessly possible. Although Office 2010 did offer support for reading Strict Open XML documents, only Office 2013 will deliver full support for Open XML, with write capabilities packed inside. That means users can save ODP as PPT format for Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint users can now save PPT/PPTX as ODP format for OpenOffice too.

Microsoft Office 2013 ODF

You know since Microsoft Office 2010, users can save PowerPoint/Word/Excel as PDF format. Now there is also the PDF Reflow feature that Microsoft has packed inside Office 2013, through which users can open PDF files as editable office documents. This capability does not necessarily turn Office 2013 into a PDF editor or reader, but it is meant to provide users with the possibility to access content in PDF files in an editable form through the use of Word 2013.
