The Pen Tablet that Works the Way You Do: The New Wacom Intuos Pro
For many artists and designers, creative expression starts on paper with the help of a favorite pencil or pen. Only after starting their concepts on paper and scanning the results do artists and designers fire up their computers and start their digital workflow.
What if one could skip the scanning step and have editable, digital versions of sketches available at the touch of a button? And this with the power to refine and complete the sketches later with Wacom’s most natural pen tablet experience?
The new gen of Intuos Pro
The new generation Intuos Pro provides a wealth of new features and benefits to artists, designers and photographers who demand the very best from their creative tools. The new Pro Pen 2 anchors the overall creative experience with enhanced pressure-sensitivity and precision, but it’s the Intuos Pro Paper Edition that really stands out by giving users the ability to incorporate paper into their creative workflow. Ink-on-paper drawings are captured and stored digitally on board the Intuos Pro Paper Edition and can be refined later on the tablet with any compatible layered raster or vector software application. Gone are the days of tedious and time-consuming scanning.
Thank you to the customers!
The Intuos Pro family of pen and touch tablets are born from customer feedback, with special focus on the importance paper plays in the creative process and the desire to have a seamless connection with the digital side of the creative workflow. The Intuos Pro Paper Edition boasts all the same amazing features as the Intuos Pro, but the Paper Edition model adds a Paper Clip (to attach the artists favorite drawing paper), pressure-sensitive Finetip gel ink pen and the Wacom Inkspace App to convert drawings for use with leading creative software applications. The Inkspace App environment also allows users to store and share work within the Wacom Cloud.
Slim Design and Advanced Functions
Less than 1cm thick, the next-generation Intuos Pro is the slimmest of its kind and more compact than the previous version, offering the same sized active area in a smaller overall footprint. The Intuos Pro occupies very little desk space and is easy to carry in a backpack or laptop bag for the daily commute or a business trip. It comes equipped with anodized aluminum backing, a smaller pen stand with 10 nibs and a new pen case. Both sizes of the Intuos Pro, Medium and Large, use a TouchRing, Multi-Touch and eight ExpressKeys™ for the creation of customized shortcuts to speed up the creative workflow.
Premier Pen Technology
The new Wacom Pro Pen 2 comes with the Intuos Pro and Intuos Pro Paper Edition, for the best Wacom pen experience to date. The Pro Pen 2 features four times the pressure sensitivity than the former Pro Pen, delivering 8,192 levels of pressure to support a natural and intuitive creative process.
The recently released Wacom Finetip Pen, included with the Intuos Pro Paper Edition, provides smooth-gel ink and unparalleled precision. Designed for those who begin their creative process on paper, the Finetip lets users visually depict ideas that are automatically digitized. Users can also select a Ballpoint Pen as an optional purchase.
