Wacom’s Cintiq product range has found homes in a wide variety of studio across the planet; for those looking for a more intuitive sketching experience without resorting to the likes of the iPad and the Surface, it’s a firm favourite.
The current line up has focussed on two display sizes for some time, 13″ and 16″ models, but for those wanting something a bit bigger Wacom has announced the availability of the Cintiq Pro 24, featuring all of the bells and whistles you’d come to expect from Wacom’s direct pen-based display and interaction devices – a slew of customisation options and hardware buttons, pressure sensitive pen input and all that jazz (have a read of our recent review of the MobileStudio Pro to get a better idea) – all built into a well designed unit.
After all, we’re all used to larger and large displays – and having a mismatch between your drawing surface and your additional screens might be a little jarring.
Things get even more interesting when you factor in the reall big news from Wacom, today: It has also launched a small form factor mobile workstation like device that plugs into the back of the Cintiq Pro 24.
This means that this is no longer a display and interaction device requiring a tethered workstation, but rather a self-contained unit – and one that’s half decent in terms of specification.
The Cintiq Pro Engine comes in both Xeon and i5 (Quad core) flavours, RAM at either 6Gb or 16gb, SSD drives (256Gb and 512Gb) while both feature the Nvidia P3200 graphics chip.
The Cintiq Pro 24 pen display is priced from £1,899 to £3,149 and is available starting today, with the Pen & Touch version of Cintiq Pro 24 available in May.
There are two versions of the Cintiq Pro Engine, also available in May 2018, and are priced from £2,399 to £3,149.
