More Tips about Picture-in-Picture?

A picture in picture, also call video overlay, is an amazing technology, also sometimes known as PIP. It is a feature incorporated in various televisions that allows a viewer to watch two channels at the same time. The television with this feature actually places a small additional window on one side on top of the main window. The main window and the small additional window both broadcast channels that you want to watch. This means you can watch two channels at the same time. However, the T.V only plays the sound of the main window which means you cannot hear what is going on in the additional small window.
