Comparing Picture-in-Picture (PIP), Picture-and-Picture (P&P), and Twin Picture modes

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Your TV may be able to simultaneously display two sources for program viewing or operate your TV menu while watching a program. The viewing specifics vary depending on your model and the function selected. There are three different modes. Check your TV manuals for model-specific information.

    What's the difference?

    • Picture-in-Picture (PIP): Displays content from two sources, with one opened in a small window in the corner of the TV screen.
    • Picture-and-Picture (P&P): Displays two video sources side by side.
    • Twin Picture: Displays two video sources at the same time by displaying an HDMI-connected device and a TV program using the built-in tuner.
