The Cintiq 22HD combines a 21.5" HD, wide-format LCD with industry-leading pen input capabilities, all in a traditional desktop display. Photographers, designers, artists and other creative professionals can work naturally and intuitively directly on the surface of the display, while enjoying all the creative and efficiency gains that make Cintiq the first choice among professionals.
The Cintiq 22HD pressure- and tilt-sensitive pen gives you control over pressure-sensitive brush effects such as line weight, opacity, and exposure. With Wacom's advanced Tip Sensor, the pen recognizes your slightest nuance of pressure, so you can capture every subtly in your stroke. In addition, the pen side switch can be set for application-specific shortcuts and modifiers.
Cintiq users often report major productivity gains that come from the creative experience of working directly on-screen. For starters, the ambidextrous design of the Cintiq 22HD features a pair of rear-mounted Touch Strips, along with accompanying Touch Strip Toggle buttons. Each controls up to four application-specific functions, such as brush size, zooming, scrolling and on-screen canvas rotation. Sixteen ExpressKeys™ (eight on either side of the display) boost productivity by providing quick access to keyboard shortcuts and modifier keys.
For companies, schools or universities interested in acquiring 5 or more Cinitqs, please contact a Wacom authorized reseller or contact Wacom.
The Cintiq 22HD features a 21.5" high-definition (1920 x 1080) LCD that delivers a high-quality visual experience along with plenty of room to edit, design and create. Photographers, designers, animators and other creative professionals can work naturally and intuitively directly on the surface of the screen.
While the primary performance enhancement of the Cintiq 22HD is clearly evident in the new high-definition display, the new product design adds improved accessibility and productivity tools at your fingertips. These enhancements include new hardware control buttons on the upper right-hand corner, convenient ExpressKeys and Touch Strips, as well as a convenient, auxiliary USB port.
