Wacom Announces The Cintiq Pro Creative Displays
John Williamson / 3 years ago
Wacom has over 30 years experience creating tablet devices and pushing forward this innovative form factor. Today, the company unveiled a brand new series of displays designed for the creative professional. The Cintiq Pro Creative range offers the most precise and natural pen performance to date and ensures the tablet portion is extremely lightweight. This helps designers, illustrators and photographers to create fantastic pieces in demanding situations. Masahiko Yamada, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wacom said about the latest products:
“Wacom believes in our customers’ limitless potential and we are dedicated to helping them reach their creative goals by bringing art and design to life and connecting inspiration and expression through our family of products built for creativity,”
“Thanks to the Cintiq Pro’s amazing pen performance and other design features, people passionate about exploring creativity can effectively transport what’s in their heart and soul to the digital canvas.”
Paramount to the Cintiq Pro experience is the new Pro Pen 2, offering unmatched creative control and precision to those who take their digital art seriously. Delivering four times greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous Pro Pen, the improved Pro Pen 2 creates an intuitive, free-flowing experience with virtually lag-free tracking on a glass surface that produces just the right amount of friction and is coated to reduce reflection. Additionally, the new optical bonding process greatly reduces parallax, providing a pen-on-screen performance that emulates the natural feel and feedback of a traditional pen or brush. Both Cintiq Pro models also feature multi-touch for easy and fast navigation as well as the ability to pinch, zoom and rotate illustrations, photos or models within supporting 2-D or 3-D creative software applications.
Smarter, Sleeker Design and Functions
The Wacom Cintiq Pro enriches the creative workflow with its new modern, sleek and thin design, making it easy to slip into a laptop bag or backpack and move between working locations and computers. Both high resolution Cintiq Pro models come with an optimized edge-to-edge etched glass workspace for a creative platform that encourages bold pen and brush strokes. The Cintiq Pro also builds on its predecessor the Cintiq 13HD touch, offering the ExpressKey™ Remote as an optional accessory, so users can customize their most commonly used shortcuts and modifiers when working with creative software applications. In addition, ergonomic features such as ErgoFlex, fully integrated pop out legs, and ErgoStand (an optional three-position desk stand, available in February), let users focus on their work instead of constantly adjusting for comfort or sketching in a way that is counterintuitive to their style.
Configuration, Pricing and Availability:
The Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 and 16 are compatible with both Macs and PCs and feature full HD (1920×1080) and ultra HD (3840×2160) resolution respectively. Both Cintiq Pro configurations deliver vivid colors, the 13-inch model providing 87 percent Adobe RGB and the 16-inch, 94 percent. Priced at £999.99 GBP, the Cintiq Pro 13 is expected to be available online and at select retail locations at the beginning of December. The Cintiq Pro 16, £1499.99 GBP, is intended to be available in February.
