Xencelabs has unveiled its new Pen Display 24 Studio, a 24-inch digital drawing display targeting professionals with plenty of features to enhance the drawing experience.
The new offering has all the features you would expect from a top-end professional drawing tablet, including an edge-to-edge drawing surface with etched glass for a natural ‘paper-esque’ feel under the stylus; enhanced glare reduction and fingerprint resistance; Pantone Color and SkinTone validation, and an array of stand and VESA mount options.
On top of this, Xencelabs has added an array of different customisation options to be configured to the tastes of the user, and some neat new features for better usability – including a built-in tilt stand which comes as standard, as well as its silent, fan-less operation thanks to a magnesium alloy rear housing that dissipates heat.
Key to the user customisation element of the Pen Display 24 Studiois its Quick Keys customisable remote. With an integrated OLED display users can see button assignments at a glance, showcasing up to 40 hotkeys that can be set up for each application.
The remote has also been designed to be clamped anywhere around the display edge, scroll-wheel to the top or bottom, or even simply sat on your desktop.
Two pen sizes are provided to fit different sized hands and preferences. One pen comes with three buttons (particularly useful for 3D work), while the other has two buttons, and each has an eraser.
The Xencelabs Pens can match a user’s preferred sensitivity and initial activation pressure is adjustable to as low as 3g.
The display delivers 1.07 billion colours for accurate colour reproduction with its 4K ultra-high-definition resolution (up to 3840 x 2160) contributes to an improved workflow when working on the details. Xencelabs says that its team has worked hard to tune the display’s pressure curve for optimal responsiveness and stroke-to-stroke accuracy, with the pen response adjustable to each user’s drawing style.
The edge-to-edge tempered glass with Xencelabs’ Super-AG Etching adds glare and reflection reduction, while delivering clarity even in bright rooms with overhead lighting.
The included tilt stand enables the Xencelabs Pen Display 24 to be set comfortably at any angle between 16 and 72 degrees and can be easily adjusted with one hand. A standard VESA mount (100X100mm) allows the 5.8 kg unit to be easily used with existing stand options.
“Since we launched our first product, we’ve constantly looked for new ways to improve the creative workflow,” said Xencelabs head of product Michael Thompson.
“We listened to artists and their input is reflected in the Pen Display’s design: stunning display fidelity, an excellent drawing experience, superior ergonomics and more. This device is designed for maximum productivity, adapting to the user’s preferences, not the other way around.”
Available in the second quarter of 2023, the Xencelabs Pen Display 24 will cost £1,850 in the UK and $1,899/ €2,099 elsewhere.
