Sony Unveils "Flagship" CRT Projector For High End Graphics Applications
RIDGE, N.J., - Sony Electronics announces a high end graphics CRT projector
(model VPH-G90U) that features new high resolution 9-inch electromagnetic focus
CRTs, brightness of up to 350 ANSI lumens and a resolution of 2500 x 2000
is a key feature of this new projector. The VPH-G90U may become the projector of
choice for installation in large and medium venues, conference rooms, home
theater and virtual reality applications. It can easily accommodate either
motion video or data/graphic displays, and the 135MHz bandwidth provides
faithful reproduction. Large screen images can be viewed from a wide variety of
signal input sources, such as composite video, Y/C video, component (Y/R-Y/B-Y),
RGB and HDTV, and at horizontal frequencies of up to 150kHz.

Electronics' Broadcast and Professional Company. "The projector
incorporates new technologies and features for high end applications that we
believe will satisfy even the most demanding user, be it in the boardroom or
of these technological advances is a Sony-developed feature called DRC™
(Digital Reality Creation). Unlike most projectors where line doublers or
quadruplers are an expensive option necessary to help eliminate visible scanning
lines, the built-in DRC circuitry doubles the number of active scanning lines,
and it also doubles the number of pixels on each scanning line. The resulting
image has four times the picture density of a standard 480I image.
electromagnetic focus CRT's represent another enhancement. The 20 percent
improved beam spot projection and six-pole adjustment capabilities contribute to
the VPH-G90U projector's ability to deliver resolution up to 2500 x 2000 pixels.
motion video applications, a three-line YC separation filter is available, while
a 3D comb filter is available for data/graphic input to help eliminate more of
the cross color and dot interference. A user-selectable on/off defocus mode for
video provides higher contrast levels and whiter whites at the touch of a
The VPH-G90U will be available in December 1998 from select Sony resellers at a suggested retail price of $35,000.
