Abstract The Sony GDM-FW900 24 inch, flat face monitor (22.5 inch viewable area; selling price $1999.99) is new both in its flat face CRT and in its improved electronics. It is a color monitor with excellent image quality and features that make it an excellent display device for NIMA Imagery Exploitation Capability workstations. The Sony GDM-FW900 is a distinct improvement, except for halation and linearity, over the previous model Sony GDM-W900/Sun Microsystems 365- 1352-01 color monitor that NIDL had certified for WC workstation monoscopic-mode color operation. NIDL rates this color monitor 'A' in monoscopic mode and thereby certifies the 24 inch Sony GDM-FW900 color monitor as being suitable for WC workstations in the monoscopic-mode. NIDL tested the monitor at an addressability of 1920 x 1200 pixels, as would be used in an T IEC W2K PC-based workstation. Our tests show that the monoscopic contrast modulation is excellent and exceeds 48% in Zone A and 38% over the face of the whole CkT, well above the tEC minimum perfbrmance values. The reliability of the Sony GDM-FW900 monitor is expected to be excellent; it has a limited WALTanty of 3 years for parts, labor and the CRT. NIOL has used the previous Sony GDM-W900 version of this monitor for several years now without any failures and with continued excellent perlormance. The 16:10 wide aspect ratio and the 24 inch diagonal give the analyst a larger working area than a 21 inch monitor does. The 24 inch Flat Trinitron CkT wide screen monitor will display up to 2304 x 1440 pixels at 80 Hz. The CRT has a 0.23mm aperture grille pitch at the center increasing to 0.27mm at the edges of the screen. The manutacturer recommended addressability setting is 1920 x 1200 at 85Hz.
