ColorSync 20-inch

Introduced: November 1997
Terminated: January 1999


The ColorSync 20-inch display was a Trinitron CRT with a 19” viewable screen capable of displaying 16.7 million colors at any resolution.


Coinciding with the release of the Power Macintosh G3 line, Apple released new displays to replace the earlier AppleVision Display.  The ColorSync 20-inch replaced the AppleVision 850.  The ColorSync technology would become the industry standard for color management and hold that position for long after the original ColorSync displays were discontinued.
