Zoom a Web Page inside PowerPoint?

Hello.

In our reception area our company wish to show a few Web pages on a TV connected to a computer. I assume it is no problem to get Powerpoint show these so the TV changes between 4-5 pages continously.

But is it possible to Zoom in on one of the pages, like this:
* Slide 1, main web page
* Slide 2, zoom in area A of slide 1
* Slide 3, zoom in area B of slide 1
* Slide 4, web page
* Slide 5, web page
Etc....

Can this be done?

Hi,

Screen recording software may work out better for you and allow you the ability to edit, zoom, add transitions and much more. You can record your screen, then export it as any video type you may want or flash for your website also.

Camtasia is great for this.

But the problem is that the web page is not static, it's dynamically updated several times a day.

Hmm... I don't think this is possible. I searched the web for days looking for the answer and came up empty handed. If you can figure it out though, here is a link to zoom and pan in powerpoint.

Hello.
Just an update; this might be useful for others.
Found two utilities that does the job. One for switching between web pages and one for refreshing them. Have tested for several weeks; works fine!
