VIEWING EXCELLENCE AT ANY ANGLE FROM LG
IPS1 series offers consistency of viewing angle and response time for intensive users

Slough, UK – 10 March 2011: The new IPS1 series of displays from LG Electronics is designed for the specific requirements of graphic designers and other critical business users who want excellent image consistency and sharpness allied with exceptional environmental performance. The IPS1 delivers on that promise, with the low power consumption of LG’s advanced intelligent LED backlighting and the precision of the in-plane switching (IPS) LCD panel.

The commercial designer’s role today is likely to embrace digital photography and video as much as illustration. The monitor to meet their real requirement needs to offer not just accurate colour reproduction but absolute consistency across the whole screen. To eliminate irritating motion effects in video sequences, the response time of the screen must be fast too.

The 23inch IPS1 guarantees absolute image consistency at angles up to 178˚ both vertically and horizontally. At typical working distances there can be an angular shift of 10˚ or more between the centre and the corners of the display, and monitors without LG’s IPS technology will exhibit noticeable colour and intensity shifts over this relatively small angle.

To ensure an absence of ghosting and portray smooth movement even in fast moving video action, the IPS1 has a grey-to-grey response time of just 6ms. To further help those engaged on video projects – or just taking a break from work – there are built-in speakers delivering 2 x 5W of high quality sound.

Add to this the six-axis colour control for precise user set-up and the high contrast ratio of five million to one and it is clear this is an exceptional monitor at an affordable price. Ergonomically, the stand allows both a height adjustment and 0061 range of angles, to ensure that the user can set it in a comfortable working position.

The IPS1 is part of a complete family of LED illuminated monitors from LG, each delivering maximum energy efficiency without compromising quality. The smart LED backlight technology used in the IPS1 offers an energy saving of 30% when compared with conventional LCD displays, comfortably exceeding the requirements of Energy Star 5 and EPEAT Gold environmental standards.
