A 13-inch display running at a 1080p resolution, it’s a pen-controlled screen designed to let creatives sketch, draw and colour digital images with an unparalleled amount of accuracy.

Boasting 16.7 million colours and a 178 degree viewing angle, it comes complete with the battery-free Pro Pen, which makes drawing on the display feel natural thanks to 2,048 levels of pressure and tilt sensitivity.

Both the pen and display can be stored in a bespoke case that ships with the Cintiq 13HD, allowing the display to be stood at 22, 35 and 50 degree angles, offering a flexible drawing experience to suit every artist’s needs.

“We’ve gained valuable customer feedback in developing our latest Cintiq which will support professionals and help them spur creativity on the 13-inch high resolution screen,” said Guido Möller, product manager creative products, at Wacom Europe.

“Not only that, it also enhances productivity and saves creator time with new features. As with our entire Cintiq range, the new Cintiq 13HD provides a completely immersive and ergonomic pen-on-screen experience that adapts seamlessly to all working environments and practices.”

The Wacom Cintiq 13HD will go on sale from April 2013 and will set you back £749.
