Continously evolving LCD Technology

Evolution of In-Plane-Switching (IPS)

Originally developed and released by Hitachi in 1996, IPS was the first LCD technology to provide outstanding picture quality particularly when viewed at any viewing angle. IPS technology enables exceptional colour saturation, colour stability, contrast and black levels with a 176° wide vertical and horizontal viewing angle. IPS has been further enhanced and evolved into Super-IPS, Advanced-Super IPS and more recently IPS Pro. Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics will continue to develop and improve IPS technology to provide the best LCD solution that exceeds customer .


ISP main benefine

The main benefits of IPS technology :

  • Wider Viewing Angles
  • Deeper Black Levels
  • Higher Brightness
  • Excellent Contrast
  • Fast Reponse Times

IPS LCDs are extensively used by blue chip multi-national companies in the manufacture of high performance smartphones, tablets, monitors and televisions. Industrial markets can now also benefit from the features of In-Plane-Switching technology as new Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics IPS displays become widely available.

The diagram below illustrates the improved viewing angles of IPS Pro compared to alternative wide viewing angle technologies.

In particular it is important to note the viewing angles achievable at 50% contrast level. This is known as the Half Contrast Angle (HCA) which is a more realistic measurement of wide angle performance. The maximum contrast ratio is experienced when looking perpendicular to the screen.

"IPS-Pro has a much higher and more stable image performance over viewing angle than any other LCD technology"
