VANCOUVER, WA — Wacom (www.wacom.com) is offering the Cintiq 24HD, the company’s first high definition pen display, which allows users to interact directly with the screen’s surface.
Priced at $2,499 and now shipping, the 24HD adds to the existing Cintiq line, which also includes the standard definition 12-inch 12WX ($1,000) and 21-inch 21UX ($2,000).
The new model was created in response to user demand for a larger HD screen with better color. The 24HD is mounted on a counter- weighted stand that allows users to bring the device as close to them as necessary. Its design also allows room for a keyboard to fit underneath. The unit’s productivity rings allow users to zoom in and out of imagery, as well as adjust brush sizes.
A calibration mode adjusts to user response, compensating from the thickness of the screen’s glass. The pen offers 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity and 40 degrees of tilt. An eraser is featured on the pen’s opposite end.
