Built-in AI and advanced voice assistance will sense the needs of the user, optimizing performance and responding intelligently to better meet each person’s requirements. Screen viewing areas will expand, with thinner bezels that allow for far more immersive displays. “Lenovo’s new laptops are redesigned from the ground up to offer the highest quality performance, whether interaction involves a pen, one’s voice or touch. The next generation of Lenovo laptops are designed to be amongst the thinnest, lightest and most powerful Intel-powered devices,” said the company.

“There is no doubt that the future of the workplace is changing.

Whether working from the office, home, or on-the-go, with the integration of Project Athena in our new ThinkPad and Yoga laptops, Lenovo can deliver experiences with greater speed, security, and intuitiveness.

“Our Project Athena innovation program brings together some of the industry’s boldest thinkers and social scientists to truly reimagine the laptop experience. Our extensive research and testing have resulted in a range of devices that set a new standard for foundational laptop experiences critical to helping the most ambitious, on-the-go people focus and achieve more. We are delighted that Lenovo is embracing Project Athena and look forward to working more closely together in the near future,” Taha Khalifa Client Computing Group Sales Director for EMEA Territory at Intel.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon features a new, elegant design, streamlined responsiveness, and rugged durability. Through Intel’s Project Athena innovation program, the ultimate productivity tool is made even better, with optional Global LTE-A connectivity, up to 15 hours of battery life—along with RapidCharge technology—to keep users on-task, wherever the road leads. Packed with the 8th Gen Intel Core it can handle any task with fluid efficiency, from video editing to playing the latest online games.

The 14-inch Lenovo Yoga C940 is the new 2-in-1 convertible laptop redefining smarter performance and design with its all-metal chassis and clever built-in features, like TrueBlock Privacy shutter, Windows Hello biometric authentication, and garaged pen with silo charging and Windows Ink. Enable Lenovo’s exclusive Q-Control by pressing Function-Q to shift into Intelligent Cooling Mode for your PC to auto-adjust performance and optimize battery life based on tasks. There is an improved battery life of up to 17.5 hours in FHD, and up to 10.5 hours with a UHD display.

With the device lid open, Alexa replies instantly from across the room, providing pop-up notifications even when the screen is locked. The 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor dynamically upscales video content on Windows Media Player to Super-Resolution for a crisper image on an optional 4K HDR display. This flagship device supports fast Wi-Fi 6 and comes with a Dolby Vision enabled display and a redesigned Rotating Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos Speaker System for immersive audio in every usage mode. An engraved camera notch makes 14-inch Yoga C940’s twice-polished aluminum lid easier to open, available in Iron Grey or Mica.

With a full range of intelligent features thanks to Lenovo Smart Assist, Project Athena and Alexa, the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga S740 is designed to help people save time for daily convenience. Seriously sleek with an all-aluminum body and color-matched keyboard, the 14-inch Yoga S740 is powered by up to 10th Gen Intel Core processors and touts a hands-free IR camera login and time-of-flight (TOF) sensor.

Easy to carry around town at 1.4kg (3lbs) light and ultra-slim at 18.1mm (0.7in) at its thickest point, the Yoga S740’s 14-inch optional 4K VESA400 HDR display with Dolby Vision9 features amazing sound with Dolby Atmos Speaker System, optional NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, plus an upgraded Eye Care mode made to help reduce eye strain from blue light emission.

Wacom Intros Cintiq Pro 27 Pen Display in the Region

Published

on

Wacom has launched the Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 pen display designed for harmony in a premium launch event held in the UAE’s first digital art theatre ToDA in Dubai. Cintiq Pro 27 is a creative instrument defined and developed by members of the global art and design community in conjunction with Wacom’s product teams to deliver the most immersive and stable pen-on-screen experience to date.

Purpose-built for creative professionals such as 2D illustrators, 3D modelers, animators, game developers, virtual production artists, and so on, the Cintiq Pro 27’s large digital canvas offers seamless interaction with creative software applications and provides the comfort and ease of use synonymous with all Wacom devices. The new 27-inch Cintiq Pro represents a major step forward in virtually all categories that matter to digital pen display users, such as improved pen performance and multi-touch, better ergonomics, faster refresh rates, vivid and accurate color as well as a focus on comfort and custom options.

Additionally, users will appreciate the modern look, lightweight and thin 27” screen that sports a smaller footprint than its Cintiq Pro 24 sibling. Wacom’s latest pen display joins the Cintiq Pro 16 and Cintiq Pro 24 models to form a comprehensive range of sizes for every need and workspace.

“The emphasis on cloud computing and the dependencies placed on professional freelance and studio artists to collaborate freely, quickly, and efficiently on a global scale requires a multi-tasking, do-it-all creative tool,” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business Group. “With the new Wacom Cintiq Pro 27 creative professionals can count on intuitive and natural-feeling pen and touch input, extremely accurate, factory-calibrated color, faster refresh, and other design features that allow users to comfortably and confidently produce and share work across the creative pipeline.”

The pen-on-screen experience on the Cintiq Pro 27 has been vastly improved with the introduction of the Pro Pen 3. Users now have the ability to change the weight, barrel size, and center of gravity of the pen with interchangeable components that come with the pen. In addition, the Pro Pen 3 has enhanced tilt recognition and still features Wacom’s renowned EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology with 8,192 levels of pressure and battery-free operation.

Multi-touch also comes standard and is extremely valuable for an artist’s non-dominant hand when working in programs, especially 3D applications, requiring one to pinch, zoom and rotate a model or sculpture while working with the pen. For those working in a virtual production environment, the ten-point selective touch allows users to precisely manipulate on-screen sliders and other navigable features for an extremely efficient workflow.

The Cintiq Pro 27’s new display features virtually no parallax and latency with a much-improved refresh rate of 120Hz, allowing the cursor to track twice as fast as previous models. It is equipped with HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curve for displaying and editing HDR (high dynamic range) video content. Delivering brilliant 4k resolution in 10-bit colour, 98% DCI-P3 (Digital Cinema Initiatives – Protocol 3), the film industry’s color standard, as well as 99% Adobe RGB colour accuracy, users will delight in the fidelity of the display and the true-to-life visual experience.

The display is not only Pantone validated, but also Pantone SkinTone validated, meeting the Pantone standard for accurately displaying the entire range of human skin tones. For users that enjoy moving their most commonly used keyboard shortcuts closer to their actual workspace, grip-style ExpressKeys, eight in total, four on each side, have been added to the back of the display for easy, ergonomic access.

The Cintiq’s new stand matches the modern, sleek design of the new pen display. It’s fully adjustable to meet virtually any working position and even supports +/- 20 degrees of screen rotation. For users seeking another stand option, the display does have VESA mounts for other OEM stands. “Professional content creators in media and entertainment, industrial design and education can all benefit from a tool that’s fit to work the way they want to work,” concluded Karaoglu. “Whether illustrating in 2D, sculpting in 3D, or building a virtual production solution, everyone has their own way of working and we are excited to be introducing the Cintiq Pro 27 to the creative community.”
