In 1997 Sony revamped their entire CRT projector line-up from scratch and
introduced the G70 intermediate-level projector (along with the lower end D50
and higher end G90 models).
The G70 is Sony's top of the line late model set that uses 8" liquid coupled
tubes with EM focus. 110 Khz scan rate (high enough to display anything you can
throw at it including 1080p), component input along with the regular
video/s-video/RGB inputs. A bright 1200 lumens of light output, digital
convergence, and on screen menus with lots of built-in test patterns.
The G70 is a high performance 8" unit on par with the NEC XG-110LC/XG-135LC
and the Zenith 1200/Barco Cine8 Onyx.
