Review for designers: Wacom Cintiq 24HD

posted by: Iaroslav Lazunov, in Articles / News/ Comments: 0

The Cintiq 24HD is the flagship product of the Cintiq range and has been designed for professional use. This interactive pen display from Wacom sets a new standard for everybody working in 3D design, animation, game development, industrial design and visual effects that is no longer willing to compromise when it comes to image quality, ergonomics and comfort.

Also state-of-the-art: The Cintiq 24HD allows professional users to work for exceptionally long periods of time without tiring. That is thanks to its ten individually configurable ExpressKeys, two handy Touch Rings, and above all the specially designed stand that allows you to select a working position freely, including away from the desk, much like a drafting table.

Discover the first interactive pen display to give you a new digital drawing experience without asking you to make any further compromises – because it doesn′t make any itself.

Compatible with both Macs and PCs, the Cintiq 24HD touch requires AC   power, video (DisplayPort, VGA or DVI) and a USB connection to your   laptop or desktop computer. Minimum system requirements: OS X, Windows   7 or later.

Large 24" (61 cm) widescreen display provides a perfect workspace for creating digital content.

Superior display fidelity with full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,200) and high colour gamut (92% Adobe RGB) to bring your creative ideas to life.

Supports HDCP protocol to view copy protected materials e.g. Blu-Ray videos.

Impressive industrial design with flat drawing surface and unique display stand.

Display transits between low/flat and upright/angled with the assisted lifts and intuitive breaks.

Enables unique off table edge positioning.

Work directly with the pen on screen with intuitive hand-eye coordination.

2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity and Wacom Tip Sensor produce a precise and detailed reflection of your ideas.
