Wacom Cintiq Pro
18.11.2016

Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 16 video Wacom announced the Wacom Cintiq Pro line of creative pen displays, the Cintiq Pro 13 and Cintiq Pro 16. The Wacom Cintiq Pro wraps the natural and precise pen performance into a sleek, thin and portable form factor to help designers, illustrators, photographers or anyone with a passion for art to unlock their creativity. Paramount to the Cintiq Pro is the new Pro Pen 2, offering excellent creative control and precision to those who take their digital art seriously. Delivering four times greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous Pro Pen, the improved Pro Pen 2 creates an intuitive, free-flowing experience with virtually lag-free tracking on a glass surface that produces just the right amount of friction and is coated to reduce reflection. Additionally, the new optical bonding process greatly reduces parallax, providing a pen-on-screen performance that emulates the natural feel and feedback of a traditional pen or brush. Both Cintiq Pro models also feature multi-touch for easy and fast navigation as well as the ability to pinch, zoom and rotate illustrations, photos or models within supporting 2-D or 3-D creative software applications. The Wacom Cintiq Pro 13 and 16 feature Full HD (1920x1080) and Ultra HD (3840x2160) resolutions, respectively. Both Cintiq Pro configurations deliver vivid colors, the 13-inch model providing 87 percent Adobe RGB and the 16-inch, 94 percent. Priced at 999.95 USD, the Cintiq Pro 13 is expected to be available online and at select retail locations at the beginning of December. The Cintiq Pro 16, 1499.95 USD, is intended to be available in February. [source]
