One new toy, two different models! The Wacom Cintiq Companion for Windows 8 and Cintiq Companion Hybrid for Android will give the Apple iPad a run for its money as the new cool toy to own.
Both Companions leverage key elements of the Cintiq 13HD and Cintiq 22HD touch, such as full HD display with touch control and the Wacom Pro Pen with 2048 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity.
The Cintiq Companion is a fully-fledged Windows 8 tablet, powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000 that pack a punch whether designing a character, or retouching a photo. Wacom offers two models, one with 8 GB memory and a 256 GB SSD with Windows 8; the other with 8 GB memory, 512 GB SSD with Windows 8 Pro.
The Cintiq Companion Hybrid functions as a traditional Cintiq when connected to a Mac or PC. When unplugged, it is perfect for light, spontaneous work using Android apps. The Hybrid comes with a powerful Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, Android Jellybean and specially designed software such as the new Wacom Creative Canvas for painting and sketching and Wacom Manga Canvas for the first phases of Manga creation.
For further refinement when back in the studio, rough images can be easily transferred to a computer or shared directly to popular cloud services with the easy and pre-loaded Astro File Manager. Two versions of the Cintiq Companion Hybrid are available, a 16GB version and a 32GB version.
Features on both units include customisable on-screen controls, ExpressKeys, Rocker Ring and Radial Menu. To enable a truly mobile working style, the Cintiq Companion family packs some impressive mobile communications features such as WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth (version 4.0 for Cintiq Companion and version 3.0 for Cintiq Companion Hybrid), front and rear HD cameras (2M pixels/8M pixels), a stereo headset jack and a microphone for hosting calls or streaming movies. An adjustable and detachable stand is also included with both products, offering four working angles – from flat to upright.
