Wacom's DTK-2241 Interactive Pen Display Targets Electronic Documents Workflow

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Wacom today announces the DTK-2241 interactive pen display, a premium communication tool designed to streamline the electronic documents workflow within education, healthcare and business settings. The successor to the DTU-2231, the new device offers improved pen performance, a higher quality HD LCD with a wider viewing angle and five customizable ExpressKeys for an intuitive and interactive experience that adds impact to digital communication and presentations.

Efficient interface for paperless workflow Paperless workflows in a variety of customer-facing business situations continue to grow at an extremely rapid pace. Electronic handwritten signatures are used for terms of service contracts, agreements and other applications. By viewing terms and conditions of the deal on Wacom's DTK-2241 and signing electronically on the screen, business professionals gain record-tracking efficiencies and cost-saving benefits by reducing the dependency on paper.

Effective communication with patients Healthcare professionals are often required to deliver complicated information to patients. Wacom's DTK-2241 improves the process by enabling hospital doctors, GPs, ophthalmologists and dentists to write, annotate and draw directly on patient charts and x-rays. This makes explanations clearer, more impactful and easier to understand. In addition, it is an excellent solution for healthcare administrators managing the electronic medical records process. Procedure consent and insurance forms can be easily viewed and signed on the DTK-2241, greatly improving the patient experience and the overall quality of care.

Dynamic and interactive presentations Educators in colleges and universities, as well as in corporate settings, strive for greater audience engagement. With Wacom's DTK-2241, presenters can turn static material into active and engaging content. By writing with the digital pen directly on the screen, new ideas, comments, sketches and diagrams can be spontaneously added throughout a session, creating a lively and more collaborative environment.

The DTK-2241 gives presenters an opportunity to further engage with their students by letting them face the audience, rather than turning away as would be the case in a traditional blackboard setting. When connected to a projector, the DTK-2241 also ensures ideas and information can be shared with audiences of any size, making it suitable for lecture halls, training rooms and boardrooms.

Useful features for workflow efficiency The impressive 21.5" IPS LCD with high resolution and wide viewing angle provides a large screen for users to work on. It also features anti-glare properties and is scratch resistant. Saving valuable time for users, five customizable ExpressKeys on the device offer easy access to shortcuts and commonly used functions. Advanced pen technology with 1024 pressure levels ensures excellent performance for writing and drawing with the highly durable digital pen, which also comes with two side switches for additional customization and a faster workflow. To prevent loss, the pen can be tethered to the unit.

The DTK-2241 is HDCP compliant and its built-in DVI-I pass-thru connector allows mirroring of the pen display to a projector or another display. The DTK-2241 also includes two USB ports for connecting external devices such as USB drives. Supporting a variety of working positions, the new interactive pen display comes with an adjustable stand with ranges from 15 to 72 degrees. For further convenience, the VESA mount even allows third party arms to be attached. A security lock prevents theft of the device.

Wacom's DTK-2241 can be easily integrated into existing systems and become an integral part of a paperless workflow. Due to its high durability and reliability, it offers a low total cost of ownership, requiring little maintenance.

Wacom's DTK-2241 ($1,799 USD) will be available in early June at select reseller locations as well as Wacom's eStore.
