Vancouver, WA - May 12, 2010 - Successful presentations and meetings must be interactive and dynamic in order to engage the audience and effectively communicate key information. To increase sharing and collaboration in presentation settings, Wacom® is changing how knowledge is dispersed with its new DTU-2231 and DTU-1631 interactive pen displays.

Offering the ultimate experience for effectual presentations, training or conferencing, the new DTU models' direct pen-on-screen input is designed to optimize presentation proficiency and interactivity. Speakers, trainers and project members can draw, annotate and write directly on the screen to deliver more powerful content in the most effective and natural manner possible.

"The Wacom interactive pen displays provide new high-performance solutions for professionals looking for higher levels of detail, accuracy and efficiency," said Wacom Senior Product Manager, Stan Ueno. "The ability to annotate over digital source materials with a pen in real time allows presenters to create and share ideas spontaneously and incorporate information from others. The additional features help business professionals make effective use of their time and resources."

Featuring a 21.5" widescreen HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, the DTU-2231 raises the bar for professionals who strive to provide their audiences with the ultimate, and most collaborative, viewing experience. Its generous work surface additionally matches the resolution of modern large displays and projectors within corporate meeting spaces and telepresence facilities, which allows presenters to maintain the image quality and aspect ratio they desire.

Created to accommodate professionals requiring advanced widescreen interactive pen display capabilities in a more compact form factor, the DTU-1631, with a 15.6" LCD at 1366 x 768 resolution, makes presentation and collaboration straightforward and fast for professionals wanting to simply pick up a pen and immediately begin annotating as they would on paper.

Each model boasts an internal USB hub providing the ability to connect a flash drive, Web camera or other USB device. The video pass-through feature allows the work done on the pen display to be shared directly with a secondary display. Both the DTU-2231 and the DTU-1631 easily integrate into existing AV infrastructures within corporate conference rooms, auditoriums, lecture halls, telepresence rooms for communication with large audiences or on the desktop for personal conferencing.

DTU-2231 and DTU-1631 Features Include:

  • Cordless, Battery-free Pen: With 512 levels of pressure sensitivity, the pen provides a tip switch, two customizable side switches, an eraser switch and a tether hole
  • Built-in USB Hub: With two user-accessible USB ports
  • Video Pass-Thru: DVI-I (digital or analog) input, DVI-I output and video scaler
  • Completely Flat Work Surface: 16:9 aspect ratio and adjustable stand; the DTU-2231 additionally offers anti-reflective treatment
