New Wacom Tablet Offers Potential for Motion Graphics, Animation, and Video Pros


Wacom has just announced the new
Cintiq 22HD touch. This device combines tablet and display into one, plus now features multi-touch. Here are the features I'm most excited about.

  • Multi-touch to directly interact with UI elements like color correction controls.
  • A 21.5" full HD display (with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution)
  • 16 customizable, application-specific ExpressKeys located on the side of the display bezel.
  • User-defined Touch Strips, placed on the back of the display to adjust functions like zoom, scroll, brush size and canvas rotation
  • An adjustable stand allows for display rotation, offering both landscape and portrait viewing angles as well as the option to set an incline between 10° and 65°.

The Cintiq 22HD touch ($2,499 USD) will be available in May at select locations and Wacom’s eStore.
