In 1997 Sony revamped their entire CRT projector line-up from scratch and
introduced the G90 high-level projector (along with the lower end D50 and
intermediate level G70 models).
The G90 is Sony's best (and last) late model CRT projector. It uses 9"
liquid coupled tubes with EM focus. 150 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 super-bright 1300 lumens of light output,
digital convergence, and on screen menus with lots of built-in test patterns.
The G90 represents the absolute highest in 9" CRT projector performance on
par with the Barco 1209s/Cine9 and the Electrohome Marquee 9500LC Ultra.
