With dual output setup, multi-sourced video data can be displayed in various display modes – Full Screen, Quad View, PiP (picture in picture), PbP (picture by picture), and PoP (picture on picture) on the primary display, while a selected source can be shown in full screen on the secondary display, improving operational efficiency without missing any important details.

Intuitive Boundless Switching
