What is the difference between PIP and PBP

Last Update date : Oct 29. 2020

The PIP (Picture in Picture) function separates the screen into two parts.One source device is displayed on the main screen at the same time the another source device is displayed in inset windows.
The PBP (Picture by Picture) function separates the screen in half displaying output from two different source devices simultaneously on the left and right sides of the screen.
Compatible with Windows7 and Windows8.


The PIP/PBP function may not be available depending on the specifications of the graphics card used. If the screen is blank in PIP/PBP mode when the optimum resolution is selected, go to Control Panel Display Screen Resolution and click Detect on the PC.

(Instructions are based on Windows 7.) If the screen is blank when the resolution is set to the optimum resolution, change the resolution to 1280 x 1024.

What is the difference between PIP and PBP

To maximize the picture quality, it is recommended to use a graphics card that supports 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution.

Due to system suitability problem for graphics card and Windows when PIP/PBP function is used, optimal resolution cannot be changed automatically. Set PIP/PBP Mode to Off or manually change the resolution to the optimum resolution using the Windows interface.
