VANCOUVER, Wash., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wacom®'s intuitive interactive pen displays and pen tablets allow teaching and presentation professionals to create and deliver dynamic and engaging digital content when presenting to groups or collaborating with others remotely. At InfoComm 2012, June 13 -15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Wacom will bring real-life scenarios to Booth #N1832 visitors, highlighting the latest features and benefits of the company's interactive products.

By simulating several real-world environments in its booth, Wacom will show how its industry-leading pen displays and tablets are providing those who present in the boardroom or classroom an intuitive and interactive way to communicate and collaborate through handwritten notes, sketches and drawings. Some of the simulated environments InfoComm attendees can expect to find at the Wacom booth include an interactive classroom, a flipped classroom and a distance learning scenario. Additionally, Wacom's professional line of products used for arts and design will also be on display.

"The modernization of teaching and training methods is rapidly evolving and finding the right technology for the classroom is a major focus for institutions seeking to update their presentation systems," says Michael Marcum, Vice President of Vertical Markets for Wacom.  "Whether looking for an alternative to costly interactive whiteboards or to update the classroom and break away from traditional instruction methods, Wacom has a digital solution to fit the growing technology requirements for educators."

The following input devices will be available for demonstration at the Wacom booth:

  • Designed to optimize presentation proficiency and interactivity, the high-definition DTU-2231 and compact DTU-1631 offer "pen-point" control to annotate directly on-screen, and integrate seamlessly with Microsoft® PowerPoint®, the predominant software application for corporate presentations, training sessions and lectures. Boasting a 21.5" HD (1920x1080) display, the DTU-2231 is ideal for several environments – including distance learning and collaborative workgroups. With a pen display linked to an LCD projector, those in-person are able to see exactly what the online audience is viewing on their remote computer screens. The DTU-1631 provides presentation and teaching professionals with a natural pen-on-screen workflow, which is perfect for engaging audiences as the presenter does not need to turn their back to add content. Delivering a compact form factor with a 15.6" LCD display, the DTU-1631 pen input is helpful and intuitive for writing notes and drawing diagrams, creating interactive presentations that enhance the learning environment.
  • The Cintiq® family of interactive pen displays combines the advantages of an LCD monitor with the natural feel and superior performance of Wacom's patented, professional pen technology. Intuos®5 delivers a revolutionary new pen tablet experience, combining Wacom's finest pen capabilities with an intuitive multi-touch surface and new productivity features. Professionals, educators and students in a variety of artistic fields, including photography, design, animation and illustration can use Wacom's professional grade Intuos5 pen tablets and Cintiq interactive pen displays in virtually every stage of their digital workflow.
