Wacom Bamboo tablets are pretty great for graphic design work, but it’s even more accurate when you can work directly on the screen. Bumping up performance to the next level is the newly announced Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch. This is the latest version of Wacom’s 24HD pen display and drawing screen series.
This newest version is very much like the regular 24HD that came before it, but now Wacom has added gesture control and multi-touch features to the mix for the 24HD Touch. They’re also promising an improved 24-inch display with 1.07 billion colors, covering 97% of Adobe’s RGB gamut. There’s also RGB backlighting for even better color rendition.
“Increasingly, as creative software incorporates multi-touch interaction and gesture support, the Cintiq 24HD touch provides a natural input experience for all related activities including concept sketching, illustration and especially 3D activities such as sculpting, modeling and animation,” says Professional Products Brand Director Don Varga. “The ability to manipulate a 3D model or pan, zoom and rotate an image with one hand while simultaneously sculpting or sketching with the other delivers a completely natural experience enabling artists to stay completely in their creative zone.”
Be expected to pay a pretty penny for all of this though. The Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch will retail for $3699 when it ships this August, a full $1100 more than its predecessor.
