Razer unveils Kiyo and Seiren X streaming hardware

Famous gaming company Razer beefs up their broadcaster line of products with the announcement of two new live-streaming hardware. Meet the company’s newest set of hardware, The Razer Kiyo camera with an adjustable ring light and The Razer Seiren X microphone.

The Razer Kiyo is a bit of an oddball as it is the first ever desktop camera to be equipped with an adjustable ring light. The camera has twelve levels of brightness to help streamers achieve ideal lighting conditions and combat low-light scenarios. It has a maximum video output of 1080p at 30fps. Sadly, looks like the device is only compatible with live streaming programs Open Broadcast Software and XSplit. Razer has yet to announce if it plans to expand to other live streaming software.


The Razer Seiren X, on the other hand, is the company’s latest condenser microphone. The newest member of the Seiren family now comes with a built-in shock mount and a removable desk stand. The mic is equipped with 25mm condenser capsules and has a new Super cardioid pickup pattern that can, supposedly, record sound at a tighter and more precise angle.

4MP camera
1080p, 480p, and 360p at 30 fps video recording

The Razer Kiyo and Seiren X are both priced at $99.99 (~ Php 5,150.98) and can now be purchased at their website or in stores worldwide by the end of the year. Razer has yet to announce local availability and pricing but it will most likely hit our shores given the company’s presence in our country.
