The viewing angle of a monitor refers to the maximum angle at which a display can be viewed with acceptable visual performance. In other words, it is the angle at which a screen can be viewed from the side without significant degradation in image quality, including color accuracy, brightness, and contrast.
Viewing angles are typically described by two numbers, such as 178°/178°, where the first number represents the horizontal viewing angle and the second represents the vertical viewing angle. These numbers indicate that the viewer can watch the screen from up to 178 degrees to the left or right (horizontal) and from above or below (vertical) without experiencing unacceptable image quality loss.
Viewing angles are particularly important for:
Different panel technologies have different viewing angles:
When choosing a monitor, consider how important viewing angles are for your use case to ensure you select a display that fits your needs.
