Razer has just announced Razer Kiyo Pro, a USB camera with Adaptive Light Sensor to deliver outstanding image quality in any lighting conditions, including low light. Unlike the original Razer Kiyo, the Kiyo Pro doesn’t need a Ring Light to lit you up.
It uses a 1/2.8 CMOS sensor with STARVIS technology, which is a back-illuminated pixel technology used in surveillance camera CMOS sensors to create high quality images from visible and near infrared light regions. STARVIS has been used in many other products, including Navman’s latest GPS+Dashcam, the MiCam GPS and Thinkware F800PRO.
“The Kiyo Pro, with its fantastic low-light performance, is ideal for those working from home who want to impress their customers and colleagues, and for streamers wanting to entertain their audience with a bright, vibrant image.” – said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit.
While it’s easy to think that the Kiyo Pro is made for gamers and streamers only, it is not. While we all work from home, we’d often have video conferencing with our colleagues or clients. Depending on your home setup and the lighting, the image may come up blurry, dark, or non-professional.
Thanks to Kiyo Pro, you should see significant improvements over your video conferencing calls, especially if you are in a dim room or have harsh backlighting (such as having a window at your background).
The Kiyo Pro is capable of uncompressed full HD 1080p 60FPS, or HDR 30FPS with an option of having 80, 90, or 103 degrees of viewing angle. It also includes a lens cover inside the packaging for privacy when you are not using it.
Razer Kiyo Pro is available now for purchase at AU$329.95.
