The 24HD has a 1920 x 1200 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio, 178 degree viewing angle, and can be color calibrated. It supports 2048 levels of pen pressure, up to a 400 degree pen tilt, and can register a single gram of force.

Wacom mounted the 24HD on an adjustable stand so the tablet can be used in several positions, including lowered over the edge of a desk for more comfortable drawing or editing. The tablet also includes dual touch rings for functions such as zooming and scrolling, along with ten programmable function keys.

The tablet has a single USB port, a DVI-I port and DisplayPort connectors. It supports analog RGB, digital DVI and DisplayPort input, and ships with a DVI-I to VGA adapter.

Like the other tablets in Wacom’s Cintiq line, the 24HD requires a specialized stylus and isn’t touch-sensitive.

The Cintiq 24HD is priced at US$2,499.
