Multi-zone means splitting a screen into different ZONES for displaying different channels of information, similar to newspaper column layouts for different topics or stories.
Each IAdea media player can play only one video at a given time. For high definition XMP-3250/XMP-2200 series appliances, the screen can split up to 5 different zones; one video zone plus 4 widget or photo zones in any combination. For high definition XMP-300 & HMP series, the screen can split up to 4 different zones; one video zone plus 2 photo zones and 1 text scroll. XMP-120/130 standard definition models do not support multi-zone.
