*Tech Note: IPS - in-plane switching -- panel technology was developed by Hitachi in 1996 to solve the two main limitations of LCD displays at the time: small viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. In-Plane Switching involves arranging the crystals in the cells in a single plane parallel to the plane of the panel instead of on an angle. This process greatly increases vertical viewing angles. When coupled with the high brightness and contrast of the glare type displays, color reproduction is almost perfect, which is why the display is primarily for those in professional graphics.
