Kool Tools: Cintiq 13HD
Wacom's Cintiq 13HD (http://cintiq13hd.wacom.com/en), a new addition to its lineup of Cintiq interactive pen displays, is a great tool for creative professionals working in areas such as design, art and image editing. It combines a 13-inch HD screen, an adjustable stand and an improved Pro Pen.
Key to the Cintiq 13HD is its compact, slim design and easy setup with both Mac and PC computers. The Cintiq 13HD's stand is optimized for use in a choice of four settings -- flat, 22 degrees, 35 degrees, and 50 degrees -- making it extremely comfortable to use.
The Cintiq 13HD 's best-in-class screen displays 16.7 million colors. In addition, the wide-format HD LED display's 178-degree viewing angle and 1920x1080 resolution are perfect for those working with intricate graphics or images.
As with all Wacom interactive pen displays, the Cintiq 13HD enables users to create directly on screen. Offering 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity as well as tilt recognition, the new and improved Pro Pen is cordless and battery-free.
To further improve workflow and productivity, frequently used shortcut commands are available at your fingertips through the Cintiq 13HD's four customizable and application-specific ExpressKeys and Rocker Ring. Making use of these shortcuts can save time by minimizing dependency on the keyboard.
The new Cintiq 13HD is priced at $999.95 (USD) and is scheduled to be available in early April at Wacom's eStore and other select retailers.
