front of me as I type this document is Sony's latest
offering, the G500 monitor. Based on the new Sony FD
tube technology, the G500 is a totally flat
21" (19.8" viewable) monitor featuring a 0.24mm
aperture grill pitch.
Sony's HiDensity Electron Gun™ system and Enhanced Elliptical
Correction System™ technology, the monitor delivers superior
image clarity as well as truer and brighter colours. What
all these translate into is a consistently clear display
with rich colours from one corner of the screen to the other!
The G500 also
comes with a high-contrast black coating to reduce glare
and washout caused by ambient light. This improves contrast
and greyscale performance.
Aside from visual
goodness, Sony reworked their user interface, leaving
little to be asked for. The new Sony DisplayMouse™ menu
control makes the monitor easier and more convenient
to setup. The Accurate Image Restoration™ ensures that
the display quality remains crisp and sharp after years

to your nearest dealer for a lookie at 'em.

professionals the "best-of-class" performance.
Mum! The monitor is
totally flat! Noticed the 'fishbowl' looking 17"
monitor on the right?
A flat tube
CRT is able to maximize picture quality while having a small
footprint that requires minimal desktop real estate. The
great thing about this is that you will have a large screen
display but a reduced monitor footprint.
A flat CRT design also translates into reduced
geometric distortion and glare. This is especially crucial
for users who spend countless hours in front of the monitor.
Trinitron legacy continues with the introduction of our
flagship 21-inch FD Trinitron™ display," said Sean
O’Brien, director of display marketing for Sony
Information Technologies of America (ITA). "Our G500 elevates CRT technology to a higher level by
providing a reference standard for the computer graphics
display industry. The introduction of Sony’s new FD
Trinitron technology is as significant today as the
original launch of Trinitron technology, 30 years
