Meet the Cintiq 13HD Touch

Wacom's got the touch. Wacom's got the power. And now, so can you on the latest addition to the Cintiq line, the brand new Cintiq 13HD Touch.

Now available for $999.95 in the Wacom eStore, the Cintiq 13HD Touch adds a rich multi-touch experience to the previously pen-only Cintiq 13HD. Blending the power of customizable touch input with the Wacom Pro Pen's 2048 levels of pressure sensitive input and tilt technology, artists, designers, photographers and creators of all kinds can immerse themselves in the pen display's 1920x1080 pixel canvas to work intuitively, naturally and efficiently across 16.7 million colors.

The Cintiq 13HD Touch offers four fully customizable ExpressKeys and a Rocker Ring, for a total of nine programmable commands. Coupled with the touch-commandable virtual Radial Menu, users can take complete command of their favorite software by hand and by pen simultaneously.

Capable of connecting to both Mac and PC computers, users can make the most of all of their favorite software, including the Adobe Creative Suite, Manga Studio5/Clip Studio Paint, Autodesk's SketchBook Pro, Corel Painter, Pixologic's ZBrush and more.

Keeping the display standing tall (or sitting flat) is the Cintiq 13HD touch’s included detachable stand, which lets users view their workin a choice of four settings – flat, 22°, 35° and 50°. Users won't have a problem resting the Cintiq 13HD Touch in their lap either, via the unit's dexterous 3-in-1 cable.

With the release of the Cintiq 13HD Touch, the original Cintiq 13HD with pen-only input is now offered at a new price in the Wacom eStore for $799.95.
