PORTLAND, OR — Wacom (www.wacom.com) has introduced the Cintiq Pro line of creative pen displays. The line includes the Cintiq Pro 13 and Cintiq Pro 16, which feature the most natural and precise pen performance to date, along with a sleek, thin and portable form factor.
The new Pro Pen 2 delivers four times greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous Pro Pen, 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 2D or 3D creative software applications.
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 an optional three-position desk stand (available in February), let users focus on their work.
The Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 and 16 are compatible with both Macs and PCs and feature full HD (1920x1080) and ultra HD (3840x2160) 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 $999.95, the Cintiq Pro 13 is expected to be available online and at select retail locations at the beginning of December. The Cintiq Pro 16, $1499.95, is intended to be available in February.
