View, fill out and sign documents with Wacom's LCD pen display, featuring a
small hardware footprint with big designs on improving workplace efficiencies
VANCOUVER, Wash.,  Feb. 4, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Wacom®  presents the new 
DTU-1031  pen display, an ideal solution for businesses seeking a display with a
small footprint that allows users to view and fill out documents as well as sign
them electronically. Many banks, insurance companies, hotels and retail stores
now require their clients to sign documents directly at the counter or point of
sale and the  DTU-1031 provides these organizations with an effective way to
build a fully paperless and efficient documentation workflow.

With its 10.1" LCD display, the DTU-1031 allows full letter-size documents to be
viewed with minimal scrolling. Therefore, customers can clearly see the contents
of a document and sign with confidence. State-of-the-art encryption is included
to ensure transactions are performed safely and securely.

Offering a unique hardware design, the DTU-1031 combines a high-resolution color
display with a small footprint, making it suitable for any counter or point of
sale area. An integrated stand supports two convenient viewing angles and the
device can also be positioned completely flat on a counter or desk should the
need arise. For organizations looking to customize the DTU's orientation, VESA
mounting holes allow the use of 3rd party arms and stands.  The unit features an
integrated pen compartment to secure the pen when not in use and a pen tether is
included to prevent loss. In addition, there is a security slot that can be used
to prevent theft of the device in public situations.

The DTU-1031 operates as a regular LCD monitor with pen input and is easily
integrated into standard IT infrastructures. When used with signature software
such as Wacom  sign | pro, SOFTPRO®'s SignDoc or xyzmo®'s SIGNificant, it
becomes the ideal electronic solution for viewing, filling out and signing
documents. The DTU-1031 connects to PCs with a single USB cable, removing
clutter and keeping business areas neat. Commonly used functions such as page-up
or page-down can be easily programmed onto the four customizable ExpressKeys™ 
to facilitate smooth customer interaction. The Wacom pen is pressure-sensitive,
cordless and battery-free, enhancing the natural writing experience for the user
and providing excellent reliability and durability. In addition to the natural
writing feeling, Wacom´s pen technology delivers a pressure profile during the
writing and signing process. This results in a unique biometric profile which
can be used for forensic purposes.

In addition to its pen input capabilities, the DTU-1031 can be used as an
external monitor to display slideshows and videos for advertising and other
purposes. The DTU-1031's paperless workflow solution increases customer
satisfaction by offering them a direct on-screen signing experience with
comfortable ergonomics. The highly durable DTU-1031 offers low cost of ownership
and integration is simplified with its single USB cable that provides video, pen
data and power.
