Accessory maker Razer announces a pair of "streamer certified" peripherals-- the Kiyo, a webcam with built-in ring lighting, and the Seiren X USB condenser microphone.

Razer streamingThe Kiyo features an adjustable ring light with 12 white LEDs users can control to 12 levels of brightness. It has a 4MP camera able to record either 1080p video at 30fps or 720p video at 60fps, and is compatible with the XSplit and Open Broadcaster Software streaming tools. Connectivity comes through 1.5m braided USB 2.0 cable.

Meanwhile the Seiren X is the first microphone from Razer. It has 25mm condenser capsule, a tighter recording angle the company says is optimised for streaming and built-in shock mount to dampen vibrations. A desktop stand is included, and connectivity comes through USB and a zero-latency 3.5mm headphone monitoring jack.

"Streaming has become an integral part of the gaming community," Razer states. "We took a hard look at what streamers really needed, and engineered products to support those specific use cases. The result are products that produce professional quality streams while remaining accessible to beginner users."

The Kiyo and Seiren X should hit the market by end 2017.
