At this year's SIGGRAPH in Los Angeles, Wacom is introducing the Cintiq 22, a new member of its entry-level family of creative pen displays for art and design enthusiasts, young professionals and passionate hobbyists seeking to take their digital artistic work to a whole new level. Joining the recently launched Cintiq 16, Wacom's new, larger format creative pen display incorporates the company's premium pen technology and plenty of screen real estate for optimal comfort, control and productivity.
An ideal instrument for digital sketching, illustration and technical drawing, the new Cintiq is specifically designed for a certain set of artists and designers who want the trusted and reliable Wacom experience but may not require every advanced feature found in the Cintiq Pro product line, such as 4K resolution, color performance and optical bonding. The Cintiq 22 also provides an attractive option for existing creative pen tablet users looking to upgrade, or emerging creatives who wish to try the Wacom pen on screen experience for the first time. The Cintiq 22 will be priced at $1,199 (MSRP USD) and is available this month at the Wacom eStore, Amazon, B&H and CDW. And, of course, we'll have several units at our SIGGRAPH booth for attendees to try.
The Cintiq 22 comes with Wacom's Pro Pen 2 technology, offering professional grade pen performance with 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt response. Battery-free and cordless, the Pro Pen 2 never needs charging, ever. The device also features an adjustable stand that provides multiple working angles for maximum comfort while drawing.
Wacom's family of creative pen displays have long been serving the professional illustration, animation, game development, industrial design and photography communities and the output created by these users quite literally touches all of our lives multiple times per day. From the most recent Hollywood animation viewed or video game last played to the sporty new shoes you just bought, discovering that a Wacom creative pen display had a key role in the design process is practically a guarantee. Now, we are taking all that we have learned from the professional ranks and extending the joy of working directly on screen and all the production benefits that come with it to a wider demographic. As always, Wacom looks forward to another SIGGRAPH and continuing to help people around the world create great digital art.
