Create a Digital Display Board using PowerPoint 2007

Given below is a demonstration video on how I created a Digital Display Board (as shown above) using PowerPoint 2007. Hope you like this.

You may download the PowerPoint file if required and use/share as you like.


  1. Sayuj,

    This is great.
    How do you actually create the masking effect in PPT... not familiar with that.

  2. Hi..thanks.

    There is no effect as such.. I just used the term masking because we are placing a white rectangle to mask the text outside the digital display board. Hope it is clear now.

  3. Sayuj,
    Thank you for sharing. This is such a great example of an impactful, but simple usage of ppt animation.

    Great job!

  4. Sayuj,

    Very creative use of animation and thank you for sharing it with us all. How do you edit the text?


  5. Hi Michael,

    Thank you for the comment... I have kept a png file instead of text here so that people who do not have the font also can see this the way I wanted it to. If you want to use the same file and just change the text, just type your text separate, right click, save as png... and the right click on my animation text and use the 'Change Picture' option to select your png file as the new text. Hope this helps...

  6. Well done, Sayuj...this is very effective. Thankyou for sharing

  7. Michael, Thanks for sharing! It is so quick and easy with your clear instructions and makes a really effective object :-)

  8. Thank you Anonymous... :-)

    Thank you Amalie... :-)

  9. Thanks for sharing your work. Great job. I want to know the name of the font and how can I make the animation work continuously.
