Wacom unveils two new LCD signature pad screens



Wacom Technology Services Corp., a Japanese company with U.S. operations based in Vancouver, on Tuesday introduced two new models to its portfolio of Signature Pad liquid-crystal display screens.

The company’s 5-inch and 4.5-inch LCD screens are next-generation pads designed to capture handwritten signatures to authorize or confirm transactions. Both pads offer an improved, thin design and cordless, battery-free pens that remove the physical restrictions of wired pens.

The pads are made to support banks, health care facilities, insurance companies and other businesses. Their design aims to increase efficiencies, mitigate compliance risks and reduce costs associated with handling paper documents, according to a written statement released by Wacom.
