And the best part about it is that it's really easy to use."

The DIDO utilizes the powerful AARE (Aurora Advanced Rotation Engine) Picture -and -Picture (PAP) engine, which offers several modes of operation including, quad image or split screen images, image rotation, and handles resolutions up to 1920 X 1200 @ 60Hz progressive.
