SAN FRANCISCO — Xencelabs Technologies Ltd. (www.xencelabs.com) has introduced the Pen Display 24 Studio Series, a 24-inch digital drawing display that features enhanced glare reduction and fingerprint resistance on an edge-to-edge drawing surface. Designed to provide a natural drawing experience, the Pen Display 24 includes a tilt stand and offers VESA mount flexibility, while running silently thanks to its fan-less operation.
“Since we launched our first product, we’ve constantly looked for new ways to improve the creative workflow,” explains Michael Thompson, head of product at Xencelabs. “We listened to artists and their input is reflected in the Pen Display’s design: stunning display fidelity, an excellent drawing experience, superior ergonomics and more. This device is designed for maximum productivity, adapting to the user’s preferences, not the other way around.”
The Pen Display 24 comes with a tilt stand that lets users start working immediately after downloading their preferred driver (Mac, PC or Linux) and plugging in the display. The Linux driver works similarly to the Windows and Mac drivers and has full functionality. The display’s edge-to-edge tempered glass with Xencelabs’ Super-AG Etching reduces glare and reflections, even in bright rooms with overhead lighting. The continuous surface is uninterrupted by buttons or seams, and anti-fingerprint coating reduces streaking and smudges caused by everyday use.
Two pen sizes are provided to fit different sized hands and preferences. One pen comes with three buttons, while the other has two buttons. Each has an eraser. Pens can have an initial activation pressure as low as 3g.
The Pen Display delivers 1.07 billion colors for accurate color reproduction. Its 4K Ultra-high-definition resolution (up to 3840x2160) contributes to an improved workflow, as images that are enlarged several times still retain clarity and sharpness. The display supports six industry-standard color spaces and meets key performance criteria from Pantone.
The included Xencelabs Quick Keys can be attached anywhere on the side of the Pen Display 24, making it easy for users to find a comfortable location. The Xencelabs Quick Keys allows artists to incorporate shortcut keys into their workflow through an easy-to-use interface. The integrated OLED display lets users see button assignments at a glance. There can be up to 40 shortcuts per application using the set button, which allows users to group eight keys into five different sets. The physical dial offers four function modes for zoom, rotation, brush size and other functions.
The Pen Display 24 will be available in the second quarter of 2023 for $1,899.
