EMR delivers a digital handwriting experience that feels as intuitive and natural as pen on paper.
Recreating the familiar
Writing on paper is easy and familiar for everyone. But recreating the characteristics of writing in a digital environment, including where you put the pen and the pressure you exert on the paper, is a complex business.
How EMR works
Wacom’s patented electromagnetic resonance (EMR) technology consists of a layer of sensors that sits behind the device’s Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screen and a layer of hardened glass. The sensors are arranged in an alternating vertical/horizontal grid pattern. Each sensor is precisely calibrated and emits a weak electromagnetic signal. Together, these signals create a magnetic field that extends about 5mm beyond the glass surface of the device.
