The Wacom’s Cintiq Pro 27 offers a 27-inch digital canvas in a smaller size than the Cintiq Pro 24.
Almost single Pro 27 feature has been enhanced. Faster screen refresh rate, increased multi-touch, realistic colours, and better pen experience. It can be used with the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 Stand (available separately) or a VESA 100 arm.
The 16:9 display has 2160p Ultra HD, 120Hz refresh, 1000:1 contrast, and 10ms reaction time. Pantone and Pantone SkinTone approved, it offers 1.07 billion colours (10-bit colour depth, 99% Adobe RGB, 98% DCI-P3) Wacom also added two sets of four grip-style ExpressKeys for keyboard shortcuts.
Multi-point Pro Pen 3 stylus
Wacom says Cintiq Pro 27’s on-screen pen experience has been considerably improved with Pro Pen 3.
Interchangeable components let users modify the pen’s weight, barrel size, and centre of gravity.
Therefore Artists and designers can configure the pen to their working preferences, increasing comfort and naturalness.
The Wacom Pro Pen 3 includes enhanced tilt recognition, 8,192 pressure levels, and battery-free operation. So Never-ending ink saves time and money.
Wacom’s three programmable side buttons can be used with any pressure-sensitive app.
Multi-keys are featured for using the non-dominant hand with various programmes, especially 3D applications that demand pinching, zooming, and rotating a model or character with the stylus.
In virtual production settings, ten-point selective touch allows for accurate usage of on-screen cursors and navigation features.
The pen display works with mac and pc, so OS gestures are possible. Check if the Linux application supports multipoint before using it.
There’s an on/off button for artists and designers who don’t want multi-touch.
Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 Display
The Cintiq Pro 27 has a 4K, IPS, 120Hz, real 10-bit (not FRC), reference-quality panel that covers 98% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 99% of Adobe RGB. It features a peak brightness of 400 nits, which is technically enough to display HDR (though many claim 600 nits is required to appreciate HDR) and is compatible with HLG (hybrid log gamma) and PQ (perceptual quantization) to edit and display HDR material.
The panel meets the Pantone standard for correctly depicting the full range of human skin tones.
In addition Cintiq customers keep a reference monitor to verify colours with team members and clients, the manufacturer adds. Reference-quality colours were packed into the pen display to minimise the requirement for two pricey devices. Users will presumably still own at least one additional monitor, but now they can be less expensive than 10-bit monitors from Asus, Eizo, or NEC.
Wacom says the new display’s 120Hz refresh rate eliminates parallax and latency, and the cursor can move twice as fast as before.
Moreover Multi-touch allows users to pinch, zoom, and rotate subjects using their non-dominant hand. Ten-point selective touch allows users to operate on-screen sliders and other navigational components for an effective workflow in virtual production environments. Operating system gestures are always available on the pen display for Mac and PC. Linux multitouch is app-dependent.
Cintiq has a hardware on/off button for people who don’t want multitouch.
