Its display has a 210 cd/m² brightness rating, 1000:1 static contrast ratio, wide 178° viewing angles, and support for up to 16.7 million colours with 72 per cent NTSC color coverage.

The Wacom Pro Pen 2 is designed for graphical tablets and provides you with smooth and responsive writing or drawing experience.

The Cintiq 22 features 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity; 60-degree tilt recognition, two side buttons, and virtually lag-free tracking. It’s also built with Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR) technology for battery-free use. Aside from the Pro Pen 2, a set of accessories are included such as a pen holder, replacement nibs, and a nib removal tool. User can connect the tablet to a Mac or Windows computer via HDMI and USB 2.0 cables.
