This week Wacom introduced their Cintiq 24HD, a 24-inch touchscreen, pressure sensitive display.
The Cintiq 24HD, which is now Wacom’s largest in this category, boasts a 1920 x 1200 resolution with a 178 degree viewing angle and 16:10 aspect ratio. In addition to being color calibrated ready, it’s capable of detecting 2048 levels of pen pressure and 40 degrees of tilt. All this equates to precision control and the ability to accurately influence line weight and opacity effects.
To help expedite the work experience, and flow, Wacom has outfitted the tablet like screen with up to 10 customizable shortkey buttons and more importantly a set of touch rings, which can be mapped to functions such as zooming, scrolling and changing brush size.
Design work calls for sitting for long hours, so that’s why Wacom has built the Cintiq 24HD on top of an adjustable stand that allows you to easily manipulate the height of the display as if you were drawing on a sketch table.
The Wacom Cintiq 24HD is both PC and Mac compatible, and will sell for $2499. Sorry, no word on a release date.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
