Wacom Launches 19-inch the PL-900 Graphic Tablet

Jan 26, 2009
A lot of interest among graphic artists has always been linked to graphic tablets (or what these are usually called pen tablets). These gadgets are usually developed for a rather small target market, so the interest among general public often fades away quickly.

Recently, however, Wacom introduced a new pen display, dubbed PL-900, which might have the charisma to maintain a high level of interest among users. This is mainly due to the fact that the PL-900 provides not only the ability to write and navigate onto a 19-inch monitor, but in addition offers a lot of striking features. The PL-900 graphic tablet from Wacom has:


1. SXGA resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels;
2. Video scaler feature able to support wide-format input;
3. Standard 4:3 aspect ratio. However, if connected to other hardware such as a widescreen laptop, the ration automatically changes to 16:9.

The upper mentioned features are related to the tablet itself, but the pen also has something to boast:

1. It is cordless;
2. Has an ergonomic design;
3. It's battery free.

In addition, the pen offers a 512 pressure levels and a double side-switch that can be programmed. The tablet from Walcom uses a special technology that allows the user to minimize the pen's jitter, thus significantly improving its usability.

It is worth mentioning that the PL-900 provides advanced video features due to the fact that it includes both a DVI-I input and a DVI-I output, thus one can use either an analogue or a digital video source. Wacom's PL-900 operates perfectly with computers that run on Windows or Mac OS. Its price is around $ 1,700.

Haha, I've been putting a sheet of paper on my tbaelt for years too. It does feel a lot better and I feel I make better drawings with it. I've also recommended some friends to try it out, but they don't like the texture and prefer the slippery plastic/glass feel. Whatever rocks their boat, I guess I use a medium size Intuos4 and cut my paper to match the size of the sensor . I find it confusing to just lay a whole sheet over the Wacom. I've also removed the rubber grip on my pen, as I found it too bulky. Without the grips the pen feels alot thinner, like a real pencil, and I find I have better control over my strokes that way. I don't use the side buttons, so I removed them too.Another reason why I remove the grips is cause in time it becomes sticky, which I find uncomfortable.Another thing I use to prevent the sweating and dirtying of the paper is that I wear a very thin glove (sort of like comic book artists use) and cut the middle, pointing and thumb sleeves at the first knuckle, leaving only the ring and pinky fingers covered. But I've seen Wacom sell proper gloves for use especially with the Cintiq. http://pcsmsuwcmb.com [url=http://ogzimdqjq.com]ogzimdqjq[/url] [link=http://khiyrs.com]khiyrs[/link]
