Our society is characterised by an ever-increasing need for communication and information. In order to fulfil the complex demands for communication without cultural or geographical boundaries, it is necessary continually to develop new, high-performance methods of communication and expression.
Wacom has dedicated itself to this task. For more than twenty years, Wacom has been producing and promoting innovative, PC-related tools designed to help people to illustrate their thoughts and ideas more clearly, easily and creatively.
The company name is derived from wa = harmony (from Japanese); com = computer. It is Wacom′s philosophy that technology can contribute to achieving a greater understanding and harmony between people. By allowing users to exploit their most intuitive of abilities when interfacing with computers, e.g writing and drawing, or by enabling technology to be used very intuitively, the harmony between users and digital world will develop, and consequently, communication and understanding will be enhanced.
Founded in 1983, Wacom has established itself as the leader in the world market for pen tablets and a pioneer in the development of the pen as a computer input device. This success has evolved from a more fundamental and original vision in Wacom to make our computing environment more natural, so the power of computer technology can be used more flexibly, and for a wider variety of applications. In short, to create harmony between the user and his technical environment.
Historically, the pen and paintbrush have been among the most familiar tools used by man as a means of communication and expression - it is therefore quite natural that in the age of computers, the pen should be rediscovered. Wacom has focussed on developing and promoting the pen as a means to facilitate creativity in graphics. While the scope of Wacom′s contribution and success is wider than this field alone, its achievement in graphics does illustrate Wacom ′s competence and ambitions.
Wacom′s current product range is based on its patented electromagnetic technology (′penabled′ technology) which is the key to cordless, battery-less and pressure sensitive computer input devices that have become standard equipment for a large section of the graphics design community, both professional and amateur. This ingenious technology, coupled with attention to design quality, functionality and ergonomic detail, are the major factors which have contributed to the company′s considerable success in the European, North American and Asian pen tablet markets.
Wacom has never restricted itself to pen tablets, however. Recently we see the pen coming more and more popular in a wide range of digital devices. Wacom has been a part of this development for many years and has been a pioneer in Pen Computing since 1990. Wacom does not limit itself to pens either, but looks for opportunities to develop any type of products which could make computers or digital devices more intuitive and natural.
