Close-Up: Digitizer Usage on the ASUS Vivotab Note 8

Posted on 13 February 2014, Last updated on 26 January 2020 by

WP_20140210_10_40_11_ProA pen isn’t just for handwriting input on Windows tablets. In this ‘hands-on’ video I show you a number of scenarios that are important to consider including the simple fact that the digitizer pen on the ASUS Vivotab Note 8 is stowed on-board. Also included: palm rejection, pressure sensitivity, hover actions, desktop access, annotation and a demo of wrong-hand handwriting recognition.  The pen on the ASUS Vivotab Note 8 is working out really well.

I will start work soon on a applications demo video so if you’ve got any paint, drawing, CAD, notes or other programs you’d like me to test, please list them in the comments and I’ll pick the most popular ones for a test next week. Note that I’m restricted to 2GB of RAM on the Vivotab Note 8.
