Wacom lors du CES de Las Vegas a multiplié les Press Releases sur le sujets cités dans notre titre : Digital Stationery Consortium et Digital ink. Voir la page dédiée.

Annoncé en mars avril 2016, le stylet universel Microsoft parle encore de lui, mais on n’a pas encore d’image. On parle de « dernières touches finales » quant à ce stylet, qui appartiendra à la gamme Bamboo Stylus, puisqu’il utilisera aussi la techno Active Es de Wacom (un jour, on vous fera un récapitulatif de toutes les technos pour stylet de Wacom).

Wacom Co., Ltd announced today that the company is developing a new stylus capable of using both Wacom’s own Active ES™ Pen protocol and Microsoft Pen Protocol.

The new stylus, which will be released under the Bamboo brand, is the first result of collaboration between Wacom and Microsoft based on the licensing agreement in March 2016. Incorporating the two leading pen protocols, the stylus will offer the broadest compatibility on the Windows market, enabling users to alternate seamlessly between multiple pen-equipped devices with a click and tap into ink applications including Windows Ink.

Styli have continued to gain popularity, amid growing recognition of their potential for improving productivity and creativity with mobile devices. Targeting this market, Wacom has since 2014 shipped its Active ES Pen solutions for a range of OEM customers.  Microsoft has been actively promoting ink with Windows devices and this culminated in Windows Ink in 2016, where styli play a primary role for creating and manipulating content.  Both companies concur the potential of digital ink and pen have in store for us.

“As more devices come onto the market equipped with styli and a broadening array of  ink solutions emerge, it is vital to stay focused on the customer experience. The new stylus can be used seamlessly across devices, enabling the user to take advantage of digital ink solutions such as Windows Ink,” said Mike Gay, SVP in charge of Wacom’s Consumer Business Unit.

Aute Press release : Montblanc, Samsung Join The Digital Stationery Consortium at Board Level

On avait déjà parlé du produit MontBlanc qui reprenait la techno du digital Ink pour Bamboo spart/Slate/Folio (MontBanc Augmented Paper). Que Samsung soit là aussi, c’est normal, vu que Wacom fournit les S-Pen pour les Galaxy S et les Galaxy boom boom Note. Et puis, Zzzzzz, Samsung possède 5% de Wacom depuis plus de 2 ans (ça doit fait 2 ans et demi qu’on l’écrit d’ailleurs). Maintenant Digital Stationery Consortium est appelé DSC dans les Press Releases. C’est plus court…
