Today Wacom announced the Intuos 5 Touch “WOW”
The Intuos 5 with the Human Touch
Discover a new way to make your creative process more natural as well as complementary: The new multi-touch surface of Intuos 5 touch pen tablets, gives you the advantage using the touch capabilities built into Windows 7 and MacOS Lion. Pan, rotate, navigate at the touch of your fingers while editing your pictures, painting, drawing or designing. Intuos 5 continues its professional heritage by giving you the opportunity to customise gestures as well as create application-specific settings for each gesture.
Your Settings at a Glance
The new Express View Display allows you to access and view all pen tablet settings on your monitor, similar to Head-Up Displays commonly found in aircraft and â€“ recently â€“ in cars. See how your ExpressKeys are assigned, the pressure curve of your pen is set and which gestures are currently accessible without switching applications. By resting one finger on any ExpressKey, the Express View appears as an overlay at the edge of your current screen, which allows you to quickly review and change your settings. Stay focused on your work and donâ€™t get distracted by looking down to check your settings anymore.
The re-designed ambidextrous design includes the customisable ExpressKeys and the Touch Ring, with four-position toggle. The user-defined Touch Ring provides intuitive control of scrolling, zooming, brush size, canvas rotation or layer selection while the customisable ExpressKeys allow individual, application-specific shortcuts â€“ just as you like it. Since both the Touch Ring and ExpressKeys are on the same side of the tablet your tools are at your fingertips.
All Intuos 5 pen tablets can be equipped with the Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit (sold separately) to add wireless connectivity. The easy-to-install snap-in module, tiny receiver and rechargeable battery can turn every Intuos5 tablet into a fully wireless device without any compromise. It is based on a dedicated 2.4 GHz RF technology that provides a simple and instant pairing process and reliable connection for hours.
