|Record Sales Allow Wacom(R) To Crop Prices On Cintiq(R) Interactive Pen Displays|
VANCOUVER, WA, April 1 -- Wacom Technology Corp. today announced major price reductions on its Cintiq interactive pen displays. Record sales have made it possible for Wacom to pass on significant savings to its Cintiq customers. Now, more digital artists, designers, and photographers can enjoy the benefits of working with a pen directly on screen.
Effective immediately, the Cintiq 18SX will be reduced $1000 to $2499 and the Cintiq 15X will be reduced $400 to $1499. The Cintiq 18SX has an 18.1" SXGA display (1280 x 1024) and the Cintiq 15X has a 15" XGA display (1024 x 768). Both products ship with a custom ICC profile to ensure a high level of color accuracy.
Cintiq interactive pen displays combine the advantages of an LCD monitor with the control, comfort, and productivity of Wacom's patented cordless, battery-free pen tablet technology. By working directly on the screen, users can work with greater natural precision and navigate more quickly. Many professionals claim that using a Cintiq has actually doubled their productivity.
"We are very pleased that the success and popularity of our pen technology has allowed us to make these significant price reductions that will enable studios of all sizes to enjoy an accelerated digital workflow," said Michael Marcum, Cintiq product manager. "A Cintiq interactive pen display allows users to work faster and more naturally because of the intuitive hand-eye coordination that comes with using a pen directly on the screen," he added.
In addition to lower prices, Wacom also announced a leasing program that will allow qualified applicants to enjoy the benefits of a Cintiq for low monthly payments. Cintiq interactive pen displays are available through www.WacomDirect.com and now free ground shipping is included with every Cintiq order.
Cintiq interactive pen displays are built using Wacom's Penabled(TM) components to ensure that users enjoy the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented cordless and battery-free pen technology.
