PORTLAND, OR — Wacom (wacom.com) has introduced the new Cintiq Pro 27 pen display, which was purpose built for creative professionals. The Cintiq Pro 27 features a large digital canvas and offers seamless interaction with creative software applications. The new release marks a major step forward in many of the categories that matter to digital pen display users, including improved pen performance and multi-touch, better ergonomics, faster refresh rates, vivid and accurate color, as well as a focus on comfort and custom options. Additionally, users will appreciate the modern look, light weight and thin 27-inch screen that sports a smaller footprint than its Cintiq Pro 24 sibling. Wacom’s latest pen display joins the Cintiq Pro 16 and Cintiq Pro 24 models to cover a range of sizes.
The pen-on-screen experience on the Cintiq Pro 27 has been vastly improved with the introduction of the Pro Pen 3. Users now have the ability to change the weight, barrel size and center of gravity of the pen with included interchangeable components. The Pro Pen 3 has enhanced tilt recognition and still features Wacom’s EMR (Electro-Magentic Resonance) technology, with 8,192 levels of pressure and battery-free operation. Three programmable side switches are also located on the pen to create software shortcuts and modifiers.
Multi-touch also comes standard, allowing users to pinch, zoom and rotate models or sculptures while working with the pen. And since the pen display can work with both Mac and PC, operating system gestures are available to the user. Multi-touch with Linux is dependent on application support.
The Cintiq Pro 27’s new display has an improved refresh rate of 120Hz, allowing the cursor to track twice as fast as previous models. The display delivers 4K resolution in 10-bit color, 98 percent DCI-P3, the film industry’s color standard, as well as 99 percent Adobe RGB color accuracy. New grip-style ExpressKeys - four on each side - have been added to the back of the display.
Wacom is providing free access to a number of software tools, including Celsys’ Clip Studio Paint EX, MASV, Shapr3D, Bluescape, and Toon Boom’s Harmony and Storyboard Pro. The Cintiq Pro 27 is now available, with a retail price of $3,499.95 for the pen display and $499.95 for the custom stand.
