(Received 22 March 2004 / Accepted 29 June 2004 )

We present the broadband phase averaged spectrum of one of the brightest intermediate polars V1223 Sgr, obtained with INTEGRAL and RXTE observatories (3-100 keV). Good statistical quality of the spectrum in a hard X-ray energy band (INTEGRAL/IBIS and RXTE/HEXTE) allowed us to disentangle contributions of a direct optically thin plasma emission and a reflected component to the spectrum of V1223 Sgr. The obtained measurement of the post-shock temperature of the accreting matter give us the information about the mass of the white dwarf and the inclination of the system.

Key words: stars: binaries: general -- X-rays: binaries -- stars: individual: V1223 Sgr
