PORTLAND, OR — Wacom (www.wacom.com) has introduced the Cintiq 22, the latest addition to its entry-level class of creative pen displays. The new release is larger than the recently-launched Cintiq 16 and incorporates the company’s premium pen technology with more screen real estate.
The Cintiq 22 is well suited for digital sketching, illustration and technical drawing. It provides users with a reliable Wacom experience but without some of the advanced features 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 new pen display comes with Wacom’s Pro Pen 2 technology, offering professional-grade pen technology and providing 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt response. Wacom’s EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) technology does not require a pen battery or recharge. The 1920x1080 full HD display offers 72 percent NTSC color, a hardened cover glass with anti-glare treatment and a natural, paper-like feel. Because ergonomic comfort is important, the device also features an easy-to-use adjustable stand that provides multiple working angles. Compatible with both PC and Mac, the Cintiq line works with hundreds of pressure-sensitive apps from companies such as Adobe, Autodesk, Pixologic, Celsys, Corel and Foundry.
The Cintiq 22 will be priced at $1,199 and is expected to be available this month via the Wacom eStore, Amazon, B&H and CDW.
