Wacom Cintiq

The Cintiq family of interactive pen displays combine the advantages of an LCD monitor with the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented, professional pen technology. By using a pen directly on screen, you work more quickly and naturally with world-class productivity tools that make using a computer as natural as possible.

You have two options for working directly on screen: the Cintiq 12WX, and the Cintiq 21UX. Both products share Wacom's most advanced display technology to provide world-class precision and control, making Cintiq products key to a digital experience that is closer to working with traditional materials and tools than ever before.

Pixel-level pen accuracy provides highly precise cursor control. The Cintiq Grip Pen features 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity on the pen tip and eraser for precise image editing, accurate brush control, and selective application of effects and filters. The result is an amazingly smooth, responsive on-screen experience that mirrors a traditional pen-on-paper feel. Additionally, the cushioned, contoured barrel of the pen has been designed to minimize grip effort for hours of comfortable use.

Both products in the Cintiq family have textured, scratch-resistant surfaces and are completely flat edge-to-edge, allowing the hand to glide over the entire surface easily, and also have adjustable stands that allow you to angle or pivot the display to achieve optimal working angles. Strategically-placed, programmable ExpressKeys™ and Touch Strips let you zoom, scroll, and activate keyboard shortcuts for even greater speed.
