Gateway EV 700 is a CRT monitor produced by Gateway. It measures 17 inches and has a viewable area of 15.9 inches. It has a CRT neck of 22.5 mm and is anti static. It also has a dot pitch of 0.28 mm as well as a deflection of 90 degrees. The ‚ÄúInvar shadow mask' is another remarkable feature of this product. It is a special shadow mask type which is made from Invar; a material that is able to endure very high temperatures that the electron beam produces. This means that the CRT monitor is therefore capable of producing a much brighter image compared to those produced by traditional shadow masks. A highly developed invar shadow mask is capable of improving brightness by up to 40 percent more over other conventional types. Thus images from the Gateway EV 700 are clearer than those of the standard gateway computers.
