- Professional LCD monitors maintain superior image quality at all angles. Using H-IPS, S-IPS, S-PVA or MVA LCD technology, professional LCD monitors offer dramatically improved experience for multi-screen arrays, but are more costly.
- Consumer LCD monitors lose 50% of their image quality outside the center 60 degrees of viewing. Slight changes in viewing angle can cause major color shifts.
Consumer TN LCD technology is employed by laptops and LCD monitors sold in retail stores. TN viewing angle specs do not reflect loss of quality off axis. TN LCDs also have lower color accuracy due to 6-bit color, causing related hues and shades to appear identical, and have limited color range (72% NTSC gamut).
