SINGAPORE, Oct. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Wacom announces the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 pen display, a creative instrument developed by members of the global art and design community, and together with Wacom’s product teams to deliver the most immersive pen on screen experience to date.

The Cintiq Pro 27 represents a major step forward in virtually all categories that matter to digital pen display users, such as improved pen performance and multi-touch, better ergonomics, faster refresh rates, vivid and accurate color. Users will appreciate the modern look, light weight and thin 27″ screen that sports a smaller footprint than its Cintiq Pro 24 sibling.

“Enter the Cintiq Pro 27, where creative professionals can count on intuitive and natural-feeling pen and touch input, extremely accurate, factory-calibrated color, faster refresh and other design features that allow users to comfortably and confidently produce and share work across the creative pipeline.” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business Group.

Pro Pen 3 and multi-touch take customization and performance to a new level

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 interchangeable components that come with the pen. Pen customization allows users to satisfy their exact working preferences which ultimately translates into more natural-feeling digital input sessions. In addition, the Pro Pen 3 has enhanced tilt recognition and still features Wacom’s renowned EMR (Electro-Magentic Resonance) technology with 8,192 levels of pressure and battery-free operation. The pen never needs charging which saves valuable time and money. Three programmable side-switches are also located on the pen to create software shortcuts and modifiers with virtually every pressure-sensitive application on the market.

Multi-touch is available and is extremely valuable for users’ non-dominant hand when working in programs, especially 3D applications, requiring one to pinch, zoom and rotate a model or sculpture while working with the pen. For those working in a virtual production environment, the ten-point selective touch allows users to precisely manipulate on-screen sliders and other navigable features for an extremely efficient workflow. And since the pen display can work with both Mac and PC, operating system gestures are always available to the user. Multi-touch with Linux is dependent on application support. For those users who prefer to work in select applications without the benefit of multi-touch, there is a convenient on/off button.

 A brilliant display

The Cintiq Pro 27’s new display features virtually no parallax and latency with a much improved refresh rate of 120Hz, allowing the cursor to track twice as fast as previous models. Delivering brilliant 4k resolution in 10-bit color, 98% DCI-P3 (Digital Cinema Initiatives – Protocol 3), the film industry’s color standard, as well as 99% Adobe® RGB color accuracy, users will delight in the fidelity of the display and the true-to-life visual experience. The display is not only Pantone® validated, but also Pantone SkinTone validated, meeting the Pantone standard for accurately displaying the entire range of human skin tones. For users that enjoy moving their most commonly used keyboard shortcuts closer to their actual workspace, grip-style ExpressKeys®, eight in total, four on each side, have been added to the back of the display for easy, ergonomical access. Wacom has added an expandable bezel to the Cintiq Pro 27 where one can add a small extension table to rest, for example, a keyboard or smartphone. The Cintiq Pro 27 display has a smaller footprint than the Cintiq Pro 24, offering valuable space improvements for a cleaner and more efficient work area. The edge-to-edge etched glass surface provides artists with precise control and a natural pen on screen experience.

New stand designed for users

The Cintiq’s new stand (sold separately) matches the modern, sleek design of the new pen display. It’s fully adjustable to meet virtually any working position and even supports +/- 20 degrees of screen rotation. For users seeking another stand option, the display does have Vesa mounts for other OEM stands.

Works with multiple software applications. New software trials also available

Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 users from every creative discipline will find that all of their favorite pressure-sensitive software applications interrelate perfectly with the new pen display. Leading applications from Adobe®, Autodesk®, Corel®, Pixologic® and the Foundry® will continue to deliver amazing results for those working on a Cintiq Pro. To offer new perspectives to Cintiq Pro 27 customers, Wacom is providing access to the following downloadable three month software trials at the time of launch: Celsys’® Clip Studio Paint EX, a complete and easy-to-use digital drawing application for the creation of comics, general illustration and 2D animation, and MASV®, the cloud-based file sharing application for creative professionals. Also available in the latter half of October as three month trials are Shapr3D®, the intuitive CAD tool built to make 3D modeling easier and quicker and Bluescape®, a visual collaboration solution with whiteboarding capabilities, infinite canvases and image search. In addition, 90-day trials of Toon Boom®’s Harmony, for creating end-to-end 2D animations and their Storyboard Pro application, the all-in-one storyboard solution, can be downloaded in the second half of October.

Availability and Sustainability

Wacom also cares about the environment and over 50% of the display’s main body and stand utilize PCR plastic.

Expected to hit stores across Southeast Asia from 24 October 2022 onwards, the Cintiq Pro 27 and stand will be available in Wacom eStore, Wacom Official Store in Lazada and Shopee, and other authorized Wacom partners.
