Razer targets broadcasters with Kiyo webcam, Seiren x microphone”

Razer today launched two new peripherals dedicated to streamers: the Razer Kiyo camera and the Razer Siren X microphone.

The Razer Seiren X, meanwhile, is a USB condenser microphone with a built-in shock mount. Many gamers prefer the Blue Yeti for a microphone but still get Razer mice and mechanical keyboards. "The result are products that produce professional quality streams while remaining accessible to novice users". There are apparently 12 levels of brightness on the ring light with color temperature rating of 5600K and 10 lux brightness at 1m. "High-definition video outputs at 720p with 60 fsp (up to 1080p with 30 fps)", Razer says. It connects via USB and has 25mm condenser capsules and a tighter recording angle that's optimized for streaming, according to the company.

These new products will cost $99.99 each, and while that may be somewhat expensive compared to other hardware you can pick up (especially for someone who's just getting going on streaming), the included shock mount on the Seiren X and the light ring on the Kiyo should cut down on the extra equipment you need to buy. The Seiren X also retails at $100 and comes with a removable desk stand so you can set it up anywhere you're streaming from. "I felt like an honorary member of the design team giving feedback so early on".

As you might expect, the camera is compatible with some of the big name broadcasting software and will be priced at $99.99.

Both the Razer Kiyo and Razer Seiren X are $99.99, targeting an October 27 release on Razerzone.com, where you'll be able to buy them first. All-in-one devices are often highly convenient but it does mean that if one part of the function breaks, the whole device suffers. Are you interested in the Kiyo or the Sieren X?
