The new Cintiq Pro 17 and 22 are designed for people working in a variety of fields. It focuses on current and future color such as visual effects (VFX) and CG, as well as professional animation, illustration, design, and photography.

Both devices also support HDR Gamma, with HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma – a standard for HDR images) and PQ (Perceptual Quantization) curves to display. Effect and edit HDR (High Dynamic Range) video content. Enhanced gamma curve makes images clearer and more realistic to human eye perception compared to SDR (Normal Dynamic Range).
