Xencelabs Technologies Digital Tablets for Creative Professionals Launch


Portland, OR—A new company, Xencelabs Technologies is delivering design tools customized to the specific needs of digital artists, photographers as well as designers. Moreover, itt begins with the launch of Xencelabs Pen Tablets and accessories.

A group of experienced creative design professionals with a shared passion for designing a new class of digital drawing tools founded the company. Xencelabs (pronounced “sense”) merges the ideas of human senses, innovation and also a “laboratory” approach to experimentation and progressive product development.

“Our Pen Tablet prioritizes a faster and more efficient creative workflow with a satisfying, natural drawing experience,” said Michael Thompson, head of Professional Product at Xencelabs. “This product aims to address common nuances to help enhance the work of creative professionals daily.”

Recognizing the need for digital design tools that support the way artists and designers really work, Xencelabs debuts with its new Pen Tablet. This product was developed in collaboration with creative communities, including photographers, illustrators, motion picture, TV and production artists.

The goal was to closely match the traditional hand-drawing experience. The result is a digital tablet alternative built for comfort, customization, ergonomics, intuitive use as well as compatibility with different devices and operating systems.

Xencelabs products are available in different configurations: Pen Tablet Medium and the Pen Tablet Medium Bundle with a Quick Keys remote option. The Quick Keys enables creatives to incorporate shortcut keys into their regular workflow through an easy-to-use interface. Both product configurations come with two different sized pens. In addition, a range of accessories are available for purchase separately.

The new Xencelabs Pen Tablet offers a clean, minimalist design without unnecessary keys; this allows users to fully benefit from its 16:9 native aspect ratio. With only 8mm thickness, it features a seamless and gently curved palm rest for comfort. Moreover, the tablet works wirelessly or with a USB cable.

Furthermore, to meet a range of artistic preferences, the Xencelabs device comes with two battery-free pens of different diameters. The thin pen has two buttons while the three-button pen accommodates artists doing 3D work. Both pens feature an eraser; 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity; 3 gram initial activation force; tilt recognition; as well as virtually no lag.

What’s more, the Quick Keys is an optional remote accessory to the Xencelabs device. It provides five sets of eight keys, for a total of 40 customizable shortcuts per application. This is particularly useful to make logical key groupings for specific steps in a workflow. In addition, the OLED display on the Quick Keys shows the assignment of each key and works in both portrait and landscape mode.

Notably, for environments where physical security is important, the tablet and the Quick Keys remote feature a Kensington Nano Lock Slot. Xencelabs-logo
