The Cintiq 24HD boasts an eye-catching and sophisticated industrial design that places an emphasis on operator control and comfort. The new 24-inch high-definition, widescreen display is ideal for creative pros working in media, entertainment and motion graphics. Videographers can now edit full HD video, saving time and improving productivity. Additionally, the new Cintiq 24HD delivers a wide colour gamut which will be appealing for photography and design professionals who demand accurate and spectacular colour representation when drawing or editing with the Cintiq pen. For those needing to calibrate colour, the Cintiq is compatible with popular colour calibration devices from industry leading manufacturers. In many cases, the screen’s quality and size will render obsolete the desire for a second display.
Making a Stand for Comfort
Ergonomic comfort is crucial for creative professionals and the Cintiq 24HD addresses this with a highly adjustable and versatile stand that allows users to work in a variety of common positions, thus reducing fatigue. Intuitive handles and spring-assisted lift make display adjustments quick and easy. For example, users wanting to feel connected to their work can securely extend the display surface over the edge of the desk so that it rests comfortably just above their lap, providing an optimal position for many types of work. When employing the Cintiq for more conventional display uses such as email, the display can quickly be repositioned to a nearly vertical position. The Cintiq can also be raised slightly above the desk to accommodate a keyboard underneath to help reduce desk clutter.
The Cintiq 24HD pen features Wacom’s proprietary Tip Sensor technology, offering users near-zero (one gram) starting pressure and virtually the same natural feel and feedback one would experience when working with traditional brushes or pens. The pen’s 2048 levels of pressure enable pressure-sensitive effects, such as controlling line weights or opacity. When combined with pressure-sensitive software applications from such developers as Adobe®, Autodesk®, Corel®, or Pixologic®, the Cintiq is capable of producing life-like artistic results. The pen also features a pressure-sensitive eraser and two side switches that can be customised for common commands such as double-click and right-click.
Additional Features and Accessories
The wide bezel of the Cintiq 24HD not only gives users a natural resting place for their arms and hands while working, but provides easy access to the customisable, application-specific ExpressKeys and Touch Rings located on each side of the display’s frame. These user-defined features are instrumental in helping improve workflow and boost productivity by placing commonly used shortcut commands at your fingertips.
Wacom’s family of accessories provide additional input options to the Cintiq 24HD. The Art Pen supports the pen rotation feature within Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as well as Corel Painter 12, delivering natural brush effects, such as those that a calligraphy pen would produce.
