With the high den­si­ty of AH-IPS, the naked eye is unable to dis­tin­guish between indi­vid­ual pix­els. AH-IPS pan­els dis­plays the orig­i­nal col­or of images with high pre­ci­sion, and fea­tures wide view­ing angle as well as sta­ble dis­play image and rapid touch response speed. Final­ly, with its brighter light trans­mis­sion and low­er pow­er con­sump­tion, AH-IPS is ide­al for use in out­door.

The 5″ Full HD LCD pan­els are expect­ed to be released dur­ing the 2nd half of this year, and will be on exhib­it for the first time at SID 2012 Dis­play Week in Boston start­ing June 4.
