Cintiq Companion – mobile 2in1 multi-touch creative tablet
Nowadays, photographers require high performance hardware and software that enables them to create in a variety of environments and on the go – e.g. studios, customer offices and collaborative meetings. The Cintiq Companion combines a multi-touch 13” Full-HD pen display with a powerful Windows 8 computer with an Intel Core i7 processor. Supporting creative freedom, it offers everything necessary for productive photographic work. Photographers can connect their camera to the Cintiq Companion and instantly view their images on the screen. Re-touching can then begin straight away using the Wacom Pro Pen with its 2048 pressure levels and one of the full creative software progammes, such as Photoshop® Creative Cloud from Adobe®. Thanks to four customisable ExpressKeys™, a Rocker Ring and Radial Menu, creatives can work faster and an adjustable stand provides comfort in multiple working positions. Wacom offers two models of the Cintiq Companion - one with 8 GB memory and 256 GB SSD with Windows 8 and the other with 8 GB memory, 512 GB SSD with Windows 8 Pro.
Also in the Cintiq Companion line is the Cintiq Companion Hybrid which functions as a Cintiq 13HD with multi-touch when connected to a Mac or PC in the studio. When unplugged, it is an Android tablet and perfect for light, spontaneous work using Android™ apps such Adobe Photoshop Touch. Photos can be easily transferred to a computer or shared directly to popular cloud services with the easy and pre-loaded ASTRO File Manager™.
