Razer Reveals Kiyo Pro Camera

Missed seeing them in person at CES but this looks great.

Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today announced the Razer Kiyo Pro, a USB camera with a high-performance Adaptive Light Sensor to deliver market-leading image fidelity, even in low-light conditions. Combining an ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor with STARVIS™* technology, the Kiyo Pro brings a professional level of image quality to video conferencing and streaming.

With working from home now being a large part of professional life, the demand for better image quality on video calls is greater than ever. Built-in laptop cameras lack the resolution and framerates for professional looking conference calls and most webcams struggle to cope with less-than-ideal lighting, giving a dim, blurry video image which can impact a professional presentation. The Kiyo Pro solves these issues with a high-performance Adaptive Light Sensor, providing superior imaging under almost any lighting conditions.

“For both video conferencing and streaming, smooth and crystal-clear video quality under any lighting conditions is a vital part of the experience,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit. “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.”

Advanced Imaging. Absolute Fidelity.

At the heart of the new Kiyo Pro is the advanced Type 1/2.8 CMOS sensor with STARVIS™ technology. STARVIS™ is a back-illuminated pixel technology, used in surveillance camera CMOS sensors, to create high quality images from visible and near infrared light regions. By incorporating this technology into the Kiyo Pro, video conference calls will have a consistently bright, clear image, even under a wide variety of typical work-from-home lighting conditions such as dim rooms, harsh lighting, backlighting or just screen lighting.

The Kiyo Pro is capable of uncompressed full HD 1080p 60FPS, for unsurpassed image fidelity and detail. The HDR 30FPS mode ramps up the dynamic range, correcting under or over exposed areas on the fly, eliminating silhouetting if the subject is lit from behind, for vibrant colors and even lighting, across the whole image.

The wide-angle lens on the Kiyo Pro gives a choice of three fields of view: 103°, 90° or 80°, making it ideal for video conferencing or streaming. The 103° view is wide enough to include everyone in a group video call or allow stream viewers to clearly see live activities, while the 80° view is perfect for professional headshot view or an engaging facecam window on gaming streams.

Flexible and fast

The Kiyo Pro has a range of extra features to adapt to any set-up and situation. With flexible mounting options for monitor, tabletop or tripod mounting, the Kiyo Pro can be positioned perfectly for use as a streaming camera regardless of the space available. The wide field of view and tripod mounting make the Kiyo Pro ideal for group conference calls, and its 16bit, omni-directional stereo microphone array ensures all participants’ voices are picked up.

For maximum uncompressed video performance, the Kiyo Pro utilizes a USB 3.0 connection to pass a 5GB/s signal. A separate privacy cover is included to both protect the lens and assure user privacy when not in use.
