Wacom introduces a new 24″ Cintiq
The Cintiq 24HD features a generous 24″ display (1920 x 1200 resolution), a 92% Adobe RGB color gamut, a wide viewing angle, and an adjustable stand for hours of comfortable and productive use.
The part of the 24HD we’re most excited about is a new physical design feature which incorporates solid industrial design thinking to solve an ergonomic issue: How can we get this massive tablet into multiple working positions that we favor? The answer comes in the form of a well-thought-out base and adjustable supporting arms that move and lock the tablet into a variety of positions.
Adobe acquires IRIDAS video tools
The addition of IRIDAS technology includes SpeedGrade, an award-winning toolset for Stereo 3D, RAW processing, color grading and finishing of digital content. IRIDAS offers the only non-destructive tools for primary and secondary color correction that are optimized for multi-core CPU and GPU performance.
Adobe’s video apps have been on a tear lately, with more exciting developments to come. (My wife works in that group & I love getting peeks at what’s brewing.)
Update: The team requests (and is getting lots of) feedback on the acquisition.
