Wacom today announces the Cintiq 22HD touch, a new addition to its expanding interactive pen display portfolio, now featuring multi-touch. Combining multi-touch with Wacom's renowned pen technology, the new Cintiq 22HD touch offers an immersive on-screen experience and a more intuitive and natural way to work. Additional features including a 21.5 full HD display, an ergonomic rotating stand and 16 customizable ExpressKeys, make the Cintiq 22HD touch an ideal creative platform for graphic designers, animators and game developers.

Giving users the power to work with in a completely natural and intuitive way, multi-touch supports gestures for rotating canvases as well as zooming and panning. The Cintiq 22HD touch closely replicates the experience of working with two hands when using traditional materials such as paints and markers, while giving the artist powerful capabilities that only exist in today's creative software applications. Windows 7/8 and Mac OS users can benefit from touch savvy applications such as Corel's latest Painter 12.2 update and Autodesk's Mudbox and Sketchbook Pro.

The Cintiq 22HD touch offers a wide-format, full HD LCD with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. Combined with its brilliant color quality, offering 16.7 million colors, the Cintiq 22HD touch provides an organic and immersive experience to users.

The Cintiq 22HD touch provides best-in-class ergonomics, helping professionals increase comfort and productivity. The adjustable stand allows for real display rotation, offering both landscape and portrait viewing angles as well as the option to set an incline between 10 and 65 degrees. Its multi-touch capabilities also provide users the option to quickly and easily rotate canvases on screen using gestures, perfect for illustration, sketching and painting.

Improving workflow and creative output even further, the Cintiq 22HD touch offers 16 customizable, application-specific ExpressKeys located on each side of the display's bezel. User-defined Touch Strips, conveniently placed on the back of the display can also be used for such functions as zoom, scroll, brush size adjustment and canvas rotation.

Delivering virtually the same feel and feedback as traditional brushes and pens, the Cintiq 22HD touch features Wacom's professional pen performance, providing 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt recognition to produce dazzling artistic effects within creative software applications from Adobe, Corel, Autodesk and many more. The Cintiq 22HD touch supports the optionally available Art Pen and Airbrush to deliver natural brush effects within Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (CS5 and above) as well as Corel Painter (10 and above).

With the existing 13HD, 22HD, 24HD and 24HD touch, there is a Cintiq interactive pen display to suit anyone's workflow requirements and budget.

The Cintiq 22HD touch ($2,499 USD) will be available in May at select reseller locations and Wacom's eStore.
