Introducing the ExpressKey Remote

Consider this your big Wacom welcome to 17 new ways to enhance your workflow. The new ExpressKey Remote is here, and with it, a full 17 programmable buttons and a 3-mode Touch Ring for use on your tablet of choice. Wacom's ExpressKeys have always optimized the creative pen tablet and display experience by giving you the power to condense multiple keystrokes with the press of a customized button, and now there's more of want you want in an ergonomic and handy profile.

Packed standard with the Cintiq 27 QHD Pen and Cintiq 27QHD Touch, the RF-powered remote works with all current generation Wacom tablets from the Intuos, Intuos Pro, Cintiq and Cintiq Companion 2 lines. So whether you're mounting it on the Cintiq 27's uninterrupted etched glass surface, adding extra Expresskey options to your Cintiq Companion 2 while traveling, or sitting alongside an Intuos Pro tablet on your desktop, the ExpressKey Remote is ready to support your creativity.

Available as a separate peripheral starting in the spring, the remote measures 5.3 x 2.0 x .4" and weighs about as much as a smartphone, making it an ergonomic solution whether it's laying on top of your display, a table or held in hand. And that's important since it can last up to 160 hours on a single 2-hour charge from its USB cable.

And while we're confident most users will get all the functionality they need from a single ExpressKey Remote experience, we've made it possible for you to use up to five at a time with your tablet of choice.... not that you'll ever necessarily need to.

With the new ExpressKey Remote, all you have is options.
