Razer Unleashes New Razer Kiyo Webcam and Mic for Streamers


Razer has today unveiled two new pieces of peripherals that they are calling “streamer-certified”. The new Razer Kiyo webcam boasts 60FPS at 720p and 30FPS at 1080p, while the new Razer Seiren X is a USB condenser microphone which looks about as professional as they get.

The new Razer Kiyo is a FullHD webcam with a twist. The camera literally has a twistable light around its edge known as a ring-light, allowing streamers to adjust the level of light on their face for optimal screen-in-screen streaming of their reactions as they play the latest games.

Check out the Razer Kiyo and Razer Seiren X in the short trailer below:

 

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 are products that produce professional quality streams while remaining accessible to beginner users.

The new streamer-certified gaming peripherals are out now, available on the Razer Zone store. The Razer Kiyo¬†and Razer Seiren X both retail for $159.95AUD, however the Kiyo is currently out of stock in Australia. It may be worthwhile waiting until stock gets sent to retail outlets if you’re wanting to spend less than $300AUD on the pair, but whether you’ll have it in time for Christmas or not remains to be seen.
