Based on the distinctive characteristics observed in the intensity transmittance of an IPS-LC panel, the previous one-dimensional model is greatly reduced such that only a few data points and their interpolations predict the intensity transmittance of an IPS-LCD with a small error for arbitrary gray levels. Experimental procedure and numerical methods are described in detail.
