New Wacom Cintiq Pro 16 for digital artists and designers
“The launch of the Cintiq Pro 16 puts the power of our flagship line of creative pen displays into an extremely portable device that’s more adaptable than ever – giving artists not only better precision, but also flexibility in how and where they work,” said Faik Karaoglu, executive vice president of marketing for Wacom’s creative business unit. “Wacom continues to create products that help artists and designers reach their full potential and reinvent what’s possible.”
Increased comfort and control
The sleek, slim design of the Wacom Cintiq Pro 16 makes it easy to slip into a laptop bag or backpack and is a smart choice for today’s digital content creators who regularly move between locations. work and computers. “For professionals who already use a Cintiq Pro 24 or 32 in their workplace, having a Cintiq Pro 16 in the home studio makes a lot of sense because the device will be more familiar,” adds Karaoglu. “It’s also a great choice for schools training the next generation in careers in animation, industrial design, game development, photography, and more.”
Wacom’s latest touchscreen technology on the Cintiq Pro 16 delivers improved performance over previous generations. The option to use the stylus and multi-touch together is still alive and although many users like to use their fingers for easy and quick navigation as well as the ability to pinch, zoom and rotate artwork, photos or models supporting 2-D and 3D creation software applications. For added customization and sophistication, the Cintiq Pro 16 features a physical switch on the top edge of the display bezel to enable or disable multi-touch for users who prefer to have touch disabled while working. Additionally, eight ExpressKeys™, for integrating and customizing hotkeys and modifiers into one’s workflow, are conveniently placed on the back sides (four on each side) of the screen for better ergonomics and the added benefit of have more space on the screen for drawing. According to Karaoglu, “Moving the ExpressKeys to the back of the device is more intuitive and improves ergonomics and haptic feedback because the keys are located in an area where most of the user’s hands will naturally gravitate when working. .”
Natural pen-to-screen performance
Wacom’s Pro Pen 2 offers unparalleled creative control and precision for those who take their digital art seriously. Offering four times the precision and pressure sensitivity of the previous Pro Pen, the improved Pro Pen 2 creates an intuitive and smooth experience with virtually lag-free tracking on an anti-reflective etched glass surface that emulates natural feel and feedback of a traditional pen or brush. Plus, optical bonding dramatically reduces parallax for better performance when working with fine lines or detail.

Third-party brackets can also be attached to the unit’s VESA mount. For artists who like to experiment with different types of pens, the Pro Pen slim and Pro Pen 3D, with three customizable buttons, offer new ways to get creative.
