Razer has unveiled the Kiyo Pro webcam, which should be the ultimate solution for gamers, streamers and freelancers. It features a Sony STARVIS backlit CMOS sensor. In terms of cost, the Kiyo Pro is far from a budget solution, but the webcam will be appreciated by those who value image quality during video broadcasts.
The webcam can shoot in the maximum resolution – FullHD (1080p) at 60 frames per second. There is a choice of viewing angle: 103 °, 90 ° or 80 °. As noted in the press release, the best dynamic range will be provided in FullHD mode at 30 frames per second.
The Kiyo Pro has a 2.1MP Sony IMX327 CMOS sensor with autofocus and f / 2.8 aperture. With regard to the aperture, this is an extremely good indicator, at which image capture without parasitic noise is ensured, even in low light conditions. As noted above, the sensor is backlit by STARVIS, which emits light in the infrared range. It turns on automatically if suddenly the room is not bright enough – a light sensor is used for this. Using special algorithms, Kiyo Pro combines the visible range of light with infrared, which gives several times better image quality compared to conventional webcams. There is a separate cover on the body that can cover the lens.
The engineers also provided several mounting options – on a computer and on a tripod. The webcam incorporates an omnidirectional stereo microphone that captures audio at 48 kHz (16 bit). To connect to a computer, the Razer Kiyo Pro uses a USB 3.0 interface at speeds up to 5 Gbps. The webcam requires at least Windows 8 to work, macOS support is not officially announced.
The Razer Kiyo Pro should go on sale during this quarter for $ 199.
