Earlier today, drawing tablet manufacturer Wacom announced the latest in its line of artists' peripherals, the Cintiq 13HD touch. The Cintiq 13HD touch is designed to offer a natural pen and touch experience. Wacom's pen display offers characteristic touch and pen capabilities, providing a digital workflow that emulates drawing or painting on paper or canvas.
Wacom has added more items to its Cintiq and Cintiq Companion ranges for artists and designers. The Cintiq 27QHD and 27QHD touch are pen displays with 27-inch screens, while the Cintiq Companion 2 is a revamped version of the company's standalone Windows tablet, which can also be used as a pen display when connected to a PC or Mac.
Drawing and artist's tablet manufacturer Wacom has introduced the new Cintiq Companion line of tablets. The Cintiq Companion runs Windows 8 and full versions of creative software. The Cintiq Companion Hybrid is a traditional Cintiq when plugged into a Mac or PC, but when used as a mobile device, works as a stand-alone Android tablet with enough power to do light sketching and run other apps.
Wacom has revised its Cintiq 22HD display-based input device to include touch controls. The Cintiq 22HD touch, much like the larger Cintiq 24HD touch, introduces multitouch to the stylus-based drawing surface, allowing artists and designers to use gestures for rotating canvases, zooming and panning their work.
Wacom has announced a new, smaller addition to its line of interactive pen displays. The Cintiq 13HD combines a tablet with a 13-inch HD LED display with a 1920x1080 resolution on an adjustable mount, providing the same experience as the larger Cintiq 22HD and Cintiq 24HD tablets, but in a much smaller and cheaper package.
Wacom has introduced a new version of its Cintiq 24HD input device. The 24HD touch brings multi-touch to the display alongside the already existing pen-based input. Gesture controls are included, which is seen as useful to those in certain creative industries, allowing a designer to move around a model more easily when working in 3D.
Wacom has announced its largest ever graphics tablet, the Cintiq 24HD. It features a 24-inch H-IPS display with 89° viewing angle and 1920x1200 resolution. The Cintiq 24HD is capable of producing 92 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and can be calibrated for color-sensitive work. As shown in an earlier leak the Cintiq 24HD ships with a highly customizable stand that can extend past the edge of the desk to hover over the user's knees for a more natural drawing position.

Input, as shown in the CGE leak, will stem from a passive pen that supports 2,048 degrees of pressure and up to 60 degrees of off-angle tilt.
(Editorial) I’m all for companies taking aim at others. In fact, I think it’s a smart move in many cases, since it gives firms the ability to highlight, on their own turf, exactly why they believe their products are better than any others. But Microsoft’s decision to build a “PC versus Mac” page on its Windows 7 site is a huge mistake, even if you’re a Windows supporter.
Wacom used the advent of CeBIT to roll out a refresh of its largest tablet display, the Cintiq 21UX. The 21-inch display revolves around a new stylus that provides much higher sensitivity: it can work at 2,048 different gradients (twice the previous best) and is sensitive enough that it can register input with only the slightest contact. Sketch artists and others that depend on line strength are those most likely to reap the benefit.
