Today, IPS Display has been used very commonly in many technology products, including phones, tablets, computer monitors, laptops and televisions. In fact, not everyone understands about IPS, so in this article I will try to synthesize information about IPS and things related to this technology.
What is an IPS Display?
In-plane Switching is the full English name for IPS, the imaging technology used on LCDs and an upgrade to the downsides of the outdated Twisted Nematic Field Effect (TN), an outdated technology. It was trendy in the 1980s and 1990s with a narrow viewing angle and limited color reproduction.
IPS technology will help improve TN’s advantages and thereby help the screen for a wider viewing angle and more attractive colors displayed.
IPS is a technology that has gone through a lot of research and in 1996 it was officially completed by Hitachi, a Japanese company. After that, other big names like Korea, Taiwan and Japan have adopted and put this technology into practice. From then on, the IPS display era officially began to this day.
Advantages of IPS Display
The IPS screen can reproduce images and colors accurately and accurately with wide viewing angles. One of IPS LCD’s outstanding advantages is that the image will not get “streaked” when touching the screen like TN LCD, so it becomes even more critical when equipped with technology devices. , especially phones and tablets.
Another advantage is that the image details are not changed too much compared to the predecessor when viewed from a narrow-angle.
Disadvantages of IPS Display
Compared with the previous TN technology, IPS will consume more power, but specifically 15% and at the same time the production cost is also much higher.
However, in technology changes to “dizzy” today, IPS has been gradually replaced by better technologies, such as OLED or AMOLED with good bearing capacity, less power consumption and can design thinner products.
Certainly in a few years, IPS will become an “outdated technology” and be replaced by a new and more efficient “thing”. But now IPS is still quite popular in technology devices such as phones, tablets, laptops, monitors, … from the affordable to high-end segment.
Apple is still using IPS technology on its iPhone models, specifically iPhone 11. Besides, other major brands such as LG, Sony, Asus, Oppo, … are still loyal to IPS.
Thus, when viewing here, you will definitely understand more about IPS screen technology as well as other screen technologies available on the market, including OLED or AMOLED.
