Examples of picture-in-picture, supersource, and other video layouts.

Glossary

  • PIP = Picture-in-picture, like when there is a camera shot of a person talking with another box superimposed on top of them (often a graphic image, Powerpoint slide, etc.).
  • SUPERSOURCE = Multiple picture-in-picture effects at the same time, often 2 boxes superimposed on top of a background image or background artwork.
  • Background graphic = A piece of artwork that we place behind other "boxes" of content.

PIPs and SUPERSOURCES screenshots

We use PIPs and SUPERSOURCEs to show the viewer multiple sources of content simultaneously. There are many options for how to create and structure these graphic layouts – usually we determine what works best based on the script, content, and run-of-show.

Background graphics screenshots

Typically this artwork families with the organization's brand in terms of color and content, but it should be subtle and not contain any text or other elements that cannot be covered by other content. Background graphics should not distract from the foreground elements sitting on top.
