Wacom has introduced the Cintiq Pro 27 monitor, a 120 Hz UltraHD 4K reference monitor with 10-bit color depth for professionals that can be operated via touchscreen with a stylus. The Cintiq Pro 27 supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and PQ (Perceptual Quantization) HDR and covers 98% of the DCI-P3 and 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. Its maximum brightness is 400 nits, which is not quite enough to display true HDR ( see also our article When can a monitor display true HDR?).

The Cintiq Pro 27&s panel is also Pantone and Pantone SkinTone validated, meaning it meets the Pantone standard for accurately representing the full range of human skin tones. According to Wacom, the goal in developing the Cintiq Pro 27 was to save users who use pen displays for their work while also using a reference monitor money by merging the two devices into one.

The Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 features an even narrower frame and overall slimmer design than previous models, plus a new customizable Wacom Pro Pen 3, ExpressKeys and custom mounting options. All physical ExpressKey buttons have been moved behind the display to the handles on the left and right sides of the Cintiq.
The high 120Hz refresh rate should result in virtually no parallax or latency effects, according to Wacom. The Cintiq Pro 27 display supports multi-touch, so in addition to operating with the stylus, users can use their other hand to, for example, drag, zoom and rotate objects, or use ten-point selective touch to operate precise sliders and other navigable functions on the screen. On the back of the device, in addition to the power port, there is an HDMI 2.1 port, two USB-C ports, a USB-A port, and a MiniDisplayPort.
Pro Pen 3
The new Pro Pen 3 features improved tilt detection and battery-free Electro-Magentic Resonance (EMR) technology with 8,192 pressure levels. The pen also comes with five standard and five felt nibs. Users can change both the pen&s weight, barrel size and center of gravity using the included interchangeable components.

. Wacom has developed a new stand for the Cintiq Pro 27 that is fully adjustable and suitable for a variety of working positions. It supports plus or minus 20° rotation of the screen to adapt to different sitting postures. However, the stand is not included with the new pen display - it costs an additional 600 euros. It can, however, be used together with older ergonomic arms from earlier Cintiq models, or with other VESA-compatible mounts.

The Cintiq Pro 27 works with both Mac (macOS 10.15 or later) and PCs (Windows 10 or later) - Multi-Touch on Linux is dependent on application support. A USB-C port with DisplayPort Alternate Mode or a DisplayPort/HDMI port with an additional USB-A port is required for operation.
Pricing and Availability
The Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 pen display costs 3,850 euros, and around 4,450 euros with the stand. Wacom offers a range of accessories that can be attached to the sides of the Cintiq Pro 27, allowing users to attach stands for smartphones, keyboards or even cameras to it. more infos at bei www.wacom.com
