Well if LG Display does make something different, they don't seem to be selling them to anyone. I haven't looked at every single one of their products, but every TV panel I've checked here has been listed as IPS:
I also haven't found any TV panel in their product catalog that has been anything other IPS. LG Display and LGE are separate subsidiaries in a massive Korean conglomerate, so any mention of what LG Display makes would come from LG Display and not LGE. The only tech that LG Display talks about on their website is the IPS. LGE is Lg Display's majority shareholder and biggest customer. When people talk about LG panels, they are talking about the panels produced by LG Display and they are considered as in-house produced when appearing on LGE products despite technically being a separate company. LGE itself makes TV's but does not actually make panels. FPR tecnology is a proprietary technology of LG Display and not LGE.
In their monitor business LG Display does manufacture TN panels and several variations of IPS, but I can't imagine LGE putting a TN panel in anything but the lowest of the low TV models and the LG Display catalog doesn't show TN being produced in anything larger than 21.5". Most reports of LG TV's without IPS have been of having VA panels, which have been outsourced as LG Display doesn't seem to make them. IHS iSuppli estimated LGE outsourcing of panels as about 20% in 2011. LGE did tell HDGuru in early 2012 that at least all 1080p 2D models under 65" would have IPS panels.
A review of LG Display's annual report filed with the SEC has no mention of VA panels being produced and indicates that 32", 47", and 55" panels are only produced at their P81, P82, P83 8th Generation plant in Paju, Korea. This plant only produces IPS panels and there is an article of a tour of that facility here:
If LG Display is making something other IPS for TV panels, they are sure being awfully sneaky about it and if they licensed FPR technology to another company, it would have to be reflected in the annual report.
I agree that their FPR page has some strange stuff, but there is always this thorough analysis of the tech by Displaymate:
Not sure if LG paid Displaymate for it, though they claim it is independent.Edited by bargugl - 3/19/13 at 7:52pm
