Wacom’s New 24HD Cintiq

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEPm8__VXjo]

Like to draw? How about drawing on a 24-inch digital screen? Wacom announced the Cintiq 24HD. At 24 inches, it’s Wacom’s largest interactive pen display so far.
The 24HD features a built-in 24-inch screen, which sports 1,920-by-1,200 pixel resolution. It has a 178-degree viewing angle, and 16:10 widescreen aspect ratio. The display can also be color calibrated for color-sensitive workflows.
There are 2,048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, allowing the 24HD to detect even a single gram of force. The included Cintiq Grip Pen has a comfortable, contoured barrel that provides a natural alternative to using a mouse. Wacom also includes a number of pen nibs (tips) that are made from a variety of materials. In addition to the Standard nib, the Stroke nib includes a dual-action spring to simulate a natural brush-like feel, and the Felt nib replicates the sensation of using a felt-tip marker.
That large screen does have a downside. The 24HD weighs a whopping 63.8 pounds, which means it isn’t too portable. Still, Wacom has integrated a number of features to make the 24HD suitable for using it in a permanent workstation. The display is attached to a counterweighted stand that allows you to easily adjust its position. You can adjust the position of the stand so that the display overhangs the edge of your desk, allowing it to sit in your lap.
The 24HD also incorporates a number of new productivity features. Finger-size Touch Rings positioned on either side of the display can be customized to perform functions such as zooming, scrolling and changing brush size. There are also ten customizable Express Keys, in addition to the pen side-switch, which can be set for application specific short-cuts and modifiers.
The Cintiq 24HD is available to order from Wacom starting today for $2499. For comparison, the 21-inch 21UX costs $1999 and the 12-inch 12WX costs $999.
