AbraxSys is Raising the Standard of its 15” and 15.6” LED Displays with IPS Technology

Baton  Rouge, LA - AbraxSys announced today that it is in the process of migrating all of its 15” (4:3) and 15.6” (16:10) LED-backlit LCD products to include In-Plane Switching technology. This is a major move to continue offering the best technology and staying ahead of the competition. This transition is expected to take place late second quarter 2015.

In-Plane Switching (IPS) was one of the first refinements to produce significant gains in the light-transmissive characteristics of TFT panels. Jointly developed by Hosiden and NEC, it is a technology that addresses the two main issues of a standard twisted nematic (TN) TFT display: Color and viewing angle.

With IPS, the crystals are aligned horizontally to the screen rather than vertically, and the electrical field is applied between each end of the crystal molecules – termed a lateral electric field. In this way, the crystals are kept parallel to the the electrode pair, and thus the glass substrate of the screen. The liquid crystal molecules are not anchored to the lower glass substrate, so move more freely into the desired alignment.

In a TN TFT display when one end of the liquid crystal is anchored to the lower glass substrate and a voltage is applied, the crystal compounds untwist, changing the angle of polarisation of the transmitted light. A downside of basic TN technology is that the alignment of molecules of liquid crystal alters the further away they are from the anchored electrode, turning at right angles to the substrates. This impairs the flow of light causing diminishing contrast, brightness and colour definition at wider angles to the screen. IPS improves viewing angles of TFT monitors considerably.
