Mirror flipping PowerPoint slides is easy…IF you know how. In this guide, I’m going to take you through several simple techniques to mirror flip your slides without manually editing each one.
This guide will make it super simple to deliver your speech or presentation in PowerPoint using a teleprompter or beamsplitter glass.
- Flip Your PowerPoint slides using a converter box. Simply plug your laptop or iPad (with adapter) into a HDMI MirrorBox and it will flip your signal automatically.
- Use a Samsung TV and enter the service menu to turn on mirror flipping. Make sure you’re using a Samsung model 5300 or above. To enter the service menu, turn off your TV and press the following buttons on a standard remote: Mute + 182 + power to turn it back on. When it loads, you’ll see the service menu–just change the H Flip option. Turn your TV back off and on again, and it will be in mirror mode. The most popular Samsung models that support this are the N5300 (1080p) and Q50R (ultra thin, 4k).
- A lot of people ask, “if I plug my laptop or tablet into the screen can it mirror film it?” Yes, provided it’s specifically a Samsung TV (model N5300 or above). You can also plug Android and iPad tablets into a TV screen through the USB-C or lightning port using an HDMI to USB-C cord.
