The Art & Design Department strives to support the most widely used Drawing Displays and Tablets in the 151 Computer Lab, as well as in the 159B Graphic Design Student Collaboration Room. While the most common drivers are installed and updated to be ready for use, we can't promise to support every brand and model available. Please refer to the categories above for info on supported devices.
Tips and Info for New Users
- If you are new to Drawing Displays and Tablets, check out this review and tips site.
- Drawing Displays and Tablets require a driver and/or software installed on the host computer to function. Some models —and even other brands—can occasionally work with drivers not specifically created for them.
- Drawing Tablets (without displays) are the simplest to connect: a single USB cable will power the tablet and make the data connection to capture your work.
- Drawing Displays typically have 3 cables: HDMI for video, USB for data, and a power plug.
- Check your Drawing Display video-in port or cable. Most are HDMI, and you may need a MiniDisplayPort to HDMI cable to connect. Or, if your Display has an all-in-one cable with HDMI out, you may need an HDMI to MiniDisplay Port adapter.
- Plug in your Drawing Display/Tablet to a lab computer to test compatibility. If it does not work, please let the IT Tech know to see if we can easily resolve any driver/update issues.
