Selected Features

IPS Panel

LG 43UM7300PUA has an in-plane switching (IPS) panel which is not commonly used in LCD TVs as they suffer from light leakage which lead to the lower contrast and poor HDR experience. However, this type of panel can provide better viewing angle and color accuracy compared to the VA panel.
