Razer targets broadcasters with Kiyo webcam, Seiren x microphone

Alienware in dark room

Hence, it is not surprising to see the famed gaming peripherals maker Razer has been coming out with products to tackle this market including the new Kiyo camera and Seiren X microphone. There are plenty of microphones to choose from, but if you're using other Razer gear, the affordable Seiren X might entice you, too. Instead of going to Logitech, where players nearly always buy their gear from, they can get it from Razer instead. It has a four-megapixel camera that can record up to 1080p at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps, and it's compatible with popular streaming tools XSplit and Open Broadcaster Software.

The Razer Kiyo is described as the world's first desktop webcam equipped with an adjustable ring light. All that for $99.99.

The webcam looks good in theory, but it faces an uphill battle for adoption, as most popular streamers don't seem to have any major lighting problems and therefore, might not need a selfie light. Many gamers prefer the Blue Yeti for a microphone but still get Razer mice and mechanical keyboards. The professional-grade microphone has 25 mm condenser capsules, removal desk stand, zero latency monitoring, and is shock-resistant.

The Razer Kiyo is available now for $99.99 from Razer Zone.


Both of Razer's new products are clearly tailor-made for streamers, and the company admits as much, saying it sought some of the top YouTube and Twitch streamers for input and offered them the chance to test early prototypes.

If not used for streaming, the Kiyo could also be a decent all-around webcam for videoconferencing, and that ring light is a nice bonus.

Available immediately through Razer's online store, the new Razer Kiyo and the Razer Seiren X are priced at RM 499 each.
