LCD screens with IPS technology, from LG

The LCD screens from LG use the IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel technology, which promises a wider viewing angle and more vivid colors, eliminating pale and washed out colours, while also consuming 30 per cent less energy. IPS is a panel manufacturing process that uses more layers and glass, and employs horizontal commutation of its liquid crystal elements. Therefore, instead of 50 frames per second, the TV will display 200 frames per second. IPS panels also enable blur-free motion pictures, no colour distortion and makes it less strenuous to the human eye.
