For decades, the large-scale production switcher has been a staple in control rooms across broadcast studios. It’s reliable, dependable, and tactile – but it also lacks flexibility, and has a large footprint in a studio where space is often at a premium. Now, there’s a new alternative for the modern virtual production broadcast studio that can improve your workflow.
With the Wacom Cintiq Pro creative pen and touch display and TouchOSC software, broadcasters now have a modern and customizable option to the analog production switcher. Broadcast professionals can create a completely customized selection of switchers, dials, sliders and controls using TouchOSC. Then, utilize the advanced touch screen display technology within the Wacom Cintiq Pro to adjust and tailor their settings in real time.
The Wacom Cintiq Pro can recognize up to 10 fingers individually on-screen, allowing for intuitive & flexible control options across a range of software packages (NLE’s, DAW’s, Realtime engines, etc.) customizable on-screen controls. The Cintiq Pro comes in multiple sizes giving users the flexibility to build individual or collaborative multi-touch control surfaces – plus, our large screen sizes have flexible mounting options for optimal ergonomics in your workspace.
While you have the added benefit of a rich display, you won’t sacrifice performance. Our Pro products are professional-grade and built for long hours and durability, far beyond a typical consumer-grade touch screen device.
