When it comes to Razer webcams, I’m sure many of you have heard of the Razer Kiyo with its ring light. Now, they finally have a successor that is expected to work far better, and it’s called the Razer Kiyo Pro.
Razer Kiyo Pro Webcam Officially Launched
The Razer Kiyo Pro is a USB 3.0 webcam and successor the original Kiyo. Unlike its predecessor however, it doesn’t come with a ring light. What it does have however is a new 1/2.8-inch CMOS sensor with STARVIS technology, the same back-illuminated pixel technology used by security cameras for improved face detection. This is said to result in a consistently bright, clear images without the need for professional lighting.
It is capable of recording up to Full HD 60FPS, with HDR is available in recordings up to 30FPS. You also have the option of three different field of views; 103°, 90°, and 80°, making it more versatile for video conference calls.
For added versatility, you can mount the webcam on your monitor, on a tabletop stand, and a tripod stand given its flexible mounting options. It also has a built-in directional stereo microphone array for convenience. Inside the box, there is a separate privacy cover in case you’re worried about someone possibly spying on you.
