What is IPS?
LG is introducing a new range of computer monitors with sophisticated IPS technology. Thanks to this technology, the monitors offer outstanding image quality and a wide viewing angle, which means that lifelike colours are represented on the screen. IPS technology (In Plane Switching), previously reserved for image processing professionals, is now also being brought within reach of the wider consumer market with these products.
