Wacom adds new DTU-2231 and DTU-1631 interactive pen displays to line

Wacom has a huge variety of products for consumers, design pros, and specialty industries. Most consumers probably know Wacom most for their consumer oriented graphics tablets like the Intuos4 that debuted earlier this month. Wacom has announced two new additions to its pen display line for specialty industries today.

The two new displays are the DTU-2231 and the DTU-1631. The DTU-2231 is hailed as the first interactive HD pen display for radiology, EMR and other applications. The screen is 21.5-inches wide and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The pen display lets users highlight areas for closer inspection and make handwritten comments right on images.

The DTU-1631 is a much smaller 15.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 supporting 720p HD resolution. The screen is sized for capturing signatures and other tasks. Both displays use battery-free pens with 512 levels of pressure sensitivity. Both also feature USB hubs, video pass-thru, and can be set to provide a flat work surface. The 2231 will sell for $1,899 and the 1631 will sell for $1,249 with availability set for this spring.
