PRESS SUMMARY

Checkout the Wacom Cintiq familyWacom Technology Corp. announced today the introduction of two new members to the Cintiq family – the Cintiq 12WX and Cintiq 20WSX. The Cintiq 12WX combines all the advantages and power of direct pen-on-screen input with a new low-profile, lightweight and flexible design. The new Cintiq 12WX is aimed at professional creators of digital content looking to improve and streamline their workflow. Storyboarding for 2D or 3D animations, compositing for post production, designing graphics, as well as retouching photos are just a few of the many creative applications where the Cintiq 12WX will excel.
Also joining Wacom's Cintiq lineup is the Cintiq 20WSX, the world's first wide-format desktop pen display. Combining the the same design elements and ergonomic enhancements as the Cintiq 21UX, Wacom's latest wide-format pen display is ideal for those who prefer to work with a 16:10 aspect ratio and may not require the increased resolution of the 21UX.

The Wacom Cintiq 12WX

The Cintiq 12WX is suitable in a variety of computer environments, especially those where users wish to work across multiple monitors. It is ideal as a companion monitor for a primary display, alongside other displays in a multi-monitor environment, or even by itself. Additionally, with an estimated street price of $999, the Cintiq 12WX is an affordable and ergonomic solution for creative users seeking an interactive pen display experience.

"Users will appreciate the Cintiq 12WX's ability to integrate seamlessly into existing workflows," said Michael Marcum, director of product management for Wacom. "Whether developing content at a work station in conjunction with a large-format display or creating material with a laptop, the Cintiq 12WX provides all the advantages of pen-on-screen usage in an intuitive and functional design."

Key to the Cintiq 12WX is its attractive size and low-profile design for comfortable and effortless handling. Weighing just 4.4 pounds, its dimensions and thoughtful styling make it an ergonomic product ideal for flexible integration into existing workplaces or use at a remote location such as a collaborative meeting at a client site. Combining the small size and flexibility of a desktop pen tablet with the natural hand-eye coordination of an interactive pen display, the Cintiq 12WX offers slimline dimensions comparable to Wacom's Intuos®3 6x11 pen tablet.

"Current Intuos3 users who switch to the Cintiq 12WX can gain an even more natural and liberating edge over their current workflow," said Marcum . "In addition, the Cintiq 12WX works seamlessly with over 100 software applications, providing navigation and creative control freedoms that place an emphasis on ease-of-use, intuitive on-screen input and a welcome jump in productivity."

Also now available is the Cintiq 20WSX, the world's first wide-format desktop interactive pen display. Featuring a 20.1” widescreen LCD (WSXGA+ 1680x1050 resolution) and the same intuitive design as the 21UX, the Cintiq 20WSX provides creative controls and workflow comfort levels that have made Wacom's interactive pen display's the de facto standard among creative professionals. Its estimated street price of $1,999 sets a new benchmark for affordability, allowing a broader audience to experience the freedom and power of working directly on screen with a Wacom pen.

“Wacom's three-tiered interactive pen display family is made complete with the introduction of the Cintiq 20WSX,” said Michael Marcum. “Now, every professional working with digital content and looking to enhance productivity and creative freedom can find the right Cintiq to match specific workflows and budgets.”
