When the Intuos Pro graphics tablet was announced at CES 2017, it sounded a little ho-hum. The reality is way better.
For the uninitiated, Wacom’s Intuos (and Bamboo) tablets connect as input devices to your computer, adding pressure-sensitive drawing and painting as well as serving as a touchpad. Like its sisterproduct line of Windows tablets, one highlight of the 2017 Intuos Pro, which uses the same Pro Pen 2, is that it supports 8,192 levels of pressure and 60 degrees of tilt recognition, the most to date. (The actual resolution hasn’t changed, though, remaining at 5,080 lines per inch/100 lines per millimeter.)
The other cool update is a new Paper edition, which includes an EMR-supporting finepoint gel pen. With it, you can draw on any paper while disconnected — it stores up to 200 drawings in the tablet’s built-in memory — and then connect to sync your drawings to its cloud service using the company’s Inkspace app. The strokes are captured in Wacom’s Ink Layer Language (WILL), which allows for text recognition and exporting as a vector format from Inkspace.
