Wacom has introduced the Cintiq 21UX, an interactive pen display in a color-accurate LCD. Designed for professional photographers, designers, artists, and animators, the new Cintiq 21UX pen performance with 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
Other enhancements include rear-mounted Touch Strips that are placed for fingertip access while working. Each Touch Strip has an accompanying thumb-controlled Touch Strip Toggle button that controls up to four different user-assigned functions per application such as zoom, scroll, brush size adjustment, and canvas rotation. In addition, the overall design has been updated in an all-black color scheme.
“Now, pressure-sensitive support can start with an incredibly light touch, emulating the same organic feel, response and result derived from working with traditional brushes, markers and pens,” said Don Varga, senior product manager for Wacom Technology Corp.
The Grip Pen also features a pressure-sensitive eraser and two customizable side switches. The display also includes customizable, application-specific ExpressKeys.
The Cintiq 21UX ships with the following software:
- Corel Painter Sketch Pad
- Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0 WE6
- Wacom Brushes 3.0 for 81 customized brushes for use with Adobe Photoshop CS + and Photoshop Elements 4 +
- Driver software, including radial menus for “pen-point” access to additional customized shortcuts.
