Sharing the technology of the recently introduced Cintiq Pro 27, Wacom has announced the launch of the Cintiq Pro 17 and Cintiq Pro 22, two additions
With colour-accurate displays capable of producing 1.07 billion colours, 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz which, both come with the customisable Wacom Pro Pen 3.
The Pro 22 features a 21.5” screen for those who need more screen real estate while the Pro 17 offers a more compact 17.3” display.
Both displays offer 8 ExpressKeys along the back edges of the displays, which users can customise according to their preferred shortcuts, while additional customisation can be found with the multi-touch gesture support, allowing the programming of specific gestures as shortcuts or virtual buttons for added workflow efficiency.
Colour coverage includes 100% Rec.709, and 99% DCI-P3 coverage – the colour gamuts used most frequently in Video, Film and Broadcast production. Both products also have Pantone Validated and Pantone SkinTone Validated certifications. Wacom says that in many cases, with this level of accuracy, the need for a second reference monitor is eliminated from colour-critical workflows.
Both displays also feature HDR Gamma support. They are equipped with HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantisation) curve for displaying and editing high dynamic range video content.
The optimised gamma curves render images to appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to standard dynamic range.
The Cintiq Pro 17 is available now for £2,349.99 while the Cintiq Pro 22 will be priced at £2849.99 (available in December 2023).
“The Cintiq Pro product family was developed in partnership with artists, game designers and video producers who are pushing technology forward,” said Wacom EVP for Branded Business Faik Karaoglu. “We watched artists work; we asked what they needed and what they hoped for.
“We integrated their desires and the needs of their intensive workflow into the Cintiq Pro line for a pen display that meets their needs today, and exceeds their desires in the future.”
