Wacom and color - the perfect match!

Wacom teamed up with X-Rite to produce an easy to use colour calibration tool that speeds workflow and reduces need for expensive external monitors: the Wacom Color Manager.

The Wacom Color Manager is our new colour calibration solution designed for photographers, designers and other creative professionals who want colour accuracy across their workflow. It gives complete color control to Cintiq creative pen displays, as well as other LCD, LED and wide-gamut display technologies.

As every artist knows, sharing and reproducing colour can be quite frustrating. Colours that have been painstakingly created during the design phase can look very different depending upon the monitor, display or projector that the user, collaborators or clients are using to view finished work. Matching the colours on a display to the final output as photos, prints, animation or video can be even more challenging. The new Color Manager combines a colorimeter calibrator and custom profiling software – developed by market leading colour expert X-Rite – to give Cintiq users more speed and confidence throughout the creative process.

Teaming with X-Rite

“We worked closely with Wacom to customise the software for direct and seamless communication with the Cintiq 27QHD’s scalar“, said X-Rite Jan Keller, Vice President OEM Sales. “With the unique features added to the Wacom® Color Manager, you’ll be able to achieve a more precise adjustment of grey scale gamma, white point, and other primary settings. We are very excited to see the high standards of both companies coming together to deliver a uniquely accurate and versatile display solution for creatives.”

The Wacom Color Manager offers specific performance advantages to users of Wacom’s highest colour performance displays, the Cintiq 27QHD line, but is engineered to provide calibration to the rest of the Cintiq family as well as other LCD, LED and wide-gamut display technologies.

Pricing and Availability

Current Cintiq owners can purchase the Wacom Color Manager, available now, from Wacom’s eStore for €229.90 (EUR), £199.99 (GBP) or from authorized resellers. All prices are including VAT.

Anyone working on the latest Mac OS X El Capitan (version 10.11), will need to update their Wacom Color Manager software from version 1.0.0 to version 1.1.0.
