Wacom well known for its range of drawing tablets has this week unveiled a new system that will enable users to share notes across different platforms in the form of WILL or Wacom Ink Layer Language.
WILL has been created by Wacom as an abstract language that records brush strokes in a consistent format regardless of how they were drawn, making them possible to be share across multiple platforms and devices.
So no matter how the drawings were created by either stylus, digital pen, or finger the new Wacom WILL system will be able to allow you to transfer the notes and drawings to other devices with ease.
To help developers and manufactures add the system to their hardware and operating systems Waco has created a software development kit (SDK) and application programming interface (API) for developers to use. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the new Wacom WILL system. Wacom explains a little more:
“The Wacom Ink Layer Language (WILL) is an universal inking engine and ink layer framework which connects hardware, software and applications. WILL is a technology that enables high quality digital pen and ink experience. The WILL SDK’s, made available to partners and external developers, support all major platforms and operating systems.
With the introduction of WILL Wacom brings its long heritage and expertise of high quality pen and ink experience to our partners and independent developers. The SDK’s are designed to make the implementation as easy as possible, Wacom is also able to fully support and help with the impementation of the technology in more complex environments.”
