The New Cintiq 22HD. $1999

With Wacom’s new Cintiq 22HD widescreen interactive pen display, illustrators, designers and artists can interact with their artwork on a more personal level. By offering a pen-on-screen experience that delivers the same natural feel, response and results derived from working with traditional brushes, pencils and pens, the Cintiq 22HD workflow allows users to unleash their creativity and express themselves just like they would with real paint on canvas or real ink on paper. Additionally, the Cintiq 22HD′s unique stand is ideal for artists who prefer to rotate their entire display as part of their workflow.

“Creative professionals want their technology to be invisible,” says Guido Möller. “That is, they need their tools of the trade to be natural, seamless and comfortable. The Cintiq 22HD meets these requirements with ergonomic features to help increase comfort and productivity.”

To improve workflow and creative output, the Cintiq 22HD offers eight customisable, application-specific ExpressKeys located on each side of the display’s bezel. Additionally, user-defined Touch Strips, conveniently placed on the back of each side of the display, can be used for such functions as zoom, scroll, brush size and canvas rotation. Artists and designers will appreciate the comfort and freedom that the Cintiq provides, especially during long sessions of drawing or sketching.


The Cintiq 22HD combines a 21.5" HD, wide-format LCD with industry-leading pen input capabilities, all in a traditional desktop display. Photographers, designers, artists and other creative professionals can work naturally and intuitively directly on the surface of the display, while enjoying all the creative and efficiency gains that make Cintiq the first choice among professionals.

Evolved Design

While the primary performance enhancement of the Cintiq 22HD is clearly evident in the new high-definition display, the new product design adds improved accessibility and productivity tools at your fingertips. These enhancements include new hardware control buttons on the upper right-hand corner, convenient ExpressKeys and Touch Strips, as well as a convenient, auxillary USB port.

Professional Pen Performance

The Cintiq 22HD pressure- and tilt-sensitive pen gives you control over pressure-sensitive brush effects such as line weight, opacity, and exposure. With Wacom's advanced Tip Sensor, the pen recognizes your slightest nuance of pressure, so you can capture every subtly in your stroke. In addition, the pen side switch can be set for application-specific shortcuts and modifiers.

Creative & Productivity Gains

Cintiq users often report major productivity gains that come from the creative experience of working directly on-screen. For starters, the ambidextrous design of the Cintiq 22HD features a pair of rear-mounted Touch Strips, along with accompanying Touch Strip Toggle buttons. Each controls up to four application-specific functions, such as brush size, zooming, scrolling and on-screen canvas rotation. Sixteen ExpressKeys™ (eight on either side of the display) boost productivity by providing quick access to keyboard shortcuts and modifier keys
