Introducing Wacom Bridge 

Historically, the tools that artists needed required them to work from studio offices. But artists want the flexibility to work where they can be most creative — not necessarily where the source files or computers are. To enable a global workforce without hindering collaboration, studios must provide artists with virtual graphics workstations that deliver similar performance and functional characteristics to the ones available to employees onsite at studio headquarters. That’s where Wacom Bridge comes in.

Animation as Research, a new approach to Climate Change

The Penn Animation as Research Lab is an innovative project at the University of Pennsylvania that combines science and art to communicate emerging climate change research in a uniquely engaging way.

Wacom was proud to host PAR representatives at our 2023 Connected Ink event. Watch their presentation — and learn more about the project by clicking below.

The power of digital ink

Humans have been using ink for thousands of years to express ourselves and preserve knowledge – from plant-based paintings on cave walls to writing and illustrating foundational cultural manuscripts. In the 20th and 21st centuries, digital ink has taken this uniquely human impulse to the next level, with Wacom at the forefront. Wacom created the electro-magnetic resonance (EMR) technology that powers our devices, and we’ve been perfecting it ever since. Today, creatives worldwide use Wacom technology to empower their work through the use of digital ink.
