LCD display technology--IPS display
In-Plane Switching (IPS) TFTs were developed to improve on the poor viewing angle and the poor color reproduction of TN TFT panels at that time. The crystal molecules move parallel to the panel plane instead of perpendicular to it. This change reduces the amount of light scattering in the matrix, which gives IPS its characteristic wide viewing angles and good color reproduction. Because of its wide viewing angle and accurate color reproduction (with almost no off-angle color shift), IPS is widely employed in high-end monitors aimed at professional graphic artists.
