The new Cintiq 27QHD
The new Cintiq 27QHD and Cintiq 27QHD touch feature a 27” widescreen, edgeless glass display with a 2560x1440px resolution and advanced color performance (97% Adobe RGB color gamut, 1.07 billion colors and REC 709).
Among the new features is the ExpressKey® Remote, a customizable controller that includes buttons and a Touch Ring, and that can be positioned either above the screen or on a desktop.
The new Cintiq has built-in front legs, while an optional adjustable stand (similar to that of the Cintiq 24), is available for purchase separately.
Thanks to the lighter construction, the 27QHD can be also mounted on ergonomic arm stands such as the Ergotron LX or MX series.
The Cintiq 27QHD and Cintiq 27QHD touch will be available from mid-January and will replace the 24HD models. The announced prices for the European market are € 2.199,90 and € 2.599,90, respectively (VAT included).
