Razer unveils new streamer-certified broadcasting hardware

31 Oct 17

Gaming brand Razer has unveiled new additions to its Razer Broadcaster product line for professional-grade video streaming: the Razer Kiyo camera and the Razer Seiren X microphone.

Input from top professional and grassroots game streamers from around the world helped to refine Razer’s latest Broadcaster hardware for superior functionality, ease of use and contemporary designs.

"Streaming has become an integral part of the gaming community,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.

“We took a hard look at what streamers really needed, and engineered products to support those specific use cases. The result is products that produce professional quality streams while remaining accessible to beginner users.”

Razer Kiyo

The Razer Kiyo is the world’s first desktop camera equipped with an adjustable ring light.

This enables an all-in-one solution that provides high image quality and professional-grade lighting without additional accessories.

Twelve levels of brightness help achieve ideal lighting in any environment.

Steamers no longer have to rely on low-light compensation with lowered frame rates.

The camera produces high-definition video outputs at 720p with 60 FPS (up to 1080p with 30 FPS).

The Razer Kiyo is compatible with Open Broadcaster Software and XSplit.

Razer Seiren X

The Razer Seiren X is a professional-grade USB condenser microphone that features the world’s first inbuilt shock mount for an all-in-one professional setup in a compact, portable form factor.

It is equipped with 25mm condenser capsules for enhanced recording sensitivity.

Its super-cardioid pickup pattern records sound at a tighter and more precise angle optimised for streaming.
 
A removable desk stand makes the Razer Seiren X highly portable.
