PC CRT Monitors - SONY

From CRT FAQ
Jump to: navigation, search

Sony manufactured complete computer monitors, as well as providing tubes and chassis for other manufacturers, such as Dell or MAG. Sony began offering computer monitors in 1983, starting with the GDM (Graphic Display Monitor) line. It then expanded into the lower-end CPD line, as well as the DDM (Data Display Monitor) professional line, mainly used for radar displays. The HMD line also existed: it featured regular low-end tubes in somewhat stylish cases. Both curved and flat screens were produced. The high definition made the damper wires, inherents to the aperture grille technology, visible on light background.
