    Example IPS Monitor

    The IPS (In-plane switching) screen technology used for LCD (liquid crystal displays), and it was originally invented by Hitachi in 1996.

    This technology is designed to solve the limitations of traditional LCDs (such as TN twisted nematic field) for example strong viewing angle dependence, high response time and low-quality color reproduction.

    Most people aware of what it is and how good can be an IPS display when they use Apple iPad. In-plane switching (IPS technology) contains arranging and switching the liquid crystal molecules layer between the glass substrates, this is done in a plane parallel to these glass plates.

    The hugh advantage of an IPS display is the wide viewing angles, that’s why colors stay true and it is not depend on what angle you view it from.   


    Why IPS panels so much better than traditional LCDs?

    • Greater Color Gamut – The IPS displays have better color gamut than TN displays. TN monitors have only 6 bits color representation but IPS display have true 8 bit. Which means in practice that TN panel limited to ~65 000 colors meanwhile IPS panels 16,7 MILLION! This is also mean that IPS provide full color re-production not like TN panels, which is a huge advantage and it is very essential to those people whose work with images or videos, or like to game!
    • Better Color Accuracy – With an IPS panel the red color appear red, the black appear black etcetera. The better color accuracy closely associated with better color gamut. IPS monitors are more easily calibrated and get more accurate colors than TN.
    • Better Viewing Angles – This is the best feature, and also the most notable to an average person. IPS monitors have up to 178-degrees wide viewing angles, while TN monitors might be as maximum 15 degrees. Above this limit color shifting occurs.
    • High accuracy in color and image quality – With an IPS monitor you will experience rich color and vivid detailed images, videos and games from virtually any angle.
    • Low power-consumption, green technology – A lot of IPS Monitors awarded with ENERGY STAR label which means those monitors use at least 25% less energy in usage and in standby mode.


    Professional IPS Panel Vs. Traditional TF Panel?

    Understanding IPS Panel Types

    Types of IPS panels

    This a very confusing question, because IPS has very wide-range of types and panel names, but the names of the panels technically means the following:


    This is the cheapest IPS panel, and that’s why it is very popular. e-IPS panel color gamut is not as good as H-IPS or P-IPS, but much more better than TN panels. Usually monitors with e-IPS panels advertised like an 8 bit monitors with 16.7 million colors, but the least expensive displays have just 6 bit color palette.


    The “h” in the name means horizontal. This is the most modern IPS panel, the pixels are in straight vertical lines with a slightly smaller electrode width. The Latest IPS monitors are manufactured in this format with horizontal IPS pixels positioned in vertical lines.


    The “p” means professional – this type of an IPS panel has wider color gamut. A lot of manufacturer claims that this type of monitors have 10 bit color palette with 1.07 billion color, but just a very few capabable to do it truly. A lot of p-IPS has 8 bit color palette with AFRC modul which is simulate the 10 bit palette.
