Pen tablets have been around for some time. Not until recently have they become affordable to the general public. They were primarily used by professionals in the Graphic art and Photo industries. VisTablet allows you to explore the internet, draw, paint, write, highlight and do professional or home photo editing. VisTablet also opens up advanced pen features available in all the new Microsoft Office applications. Through electro- magnetic induction, information is exchanged between the pen and the tablet while your movements are translated to your computer screen. With no stand-alone power supply required, the VisTablet is a great choice for portable computers as well as desktop PC’s. VisTablet will open up the world of design to you in ways that were previously either to expensive or to limiting. VisTablet is the new standard in graphics tablets.
Tablets are not only used for drawing or tracing. They also function like a mouse to interface with your computer's operating system. Use the pen on the tablet to control your on-screen cursor, move it to a desired location and click! Vista's new ink input functions in Microsoft Office greatly extend the features of your software and the VisTablet can make those features accessible.
The VisTablet’s surface area is proportional to your monitor's screen. Whether you’re using a full-size Original VisTablet or the miniVisTablet, you will always have full access to the monitor. A smaller tablet would require a bit more fine detail in your penmanship but it’s features are in no way restricted by the tablet’s size.
The VisTablet has 1,024 levels of sensitivity to the pen-pressure you apply to the surface.
