Elgato is one of the biggest names in hardware and software for content creators, and its lineup of new 2021 releases aims to follow that standard.
During its latest livestream, the company unveiled a new webcam, audio interface for non-Elgato XLR microphones, mic boom, and more.
The webcam, called the Elgato Facecam, is intended to provide a premium option for creators who may not have access to DSLR cameras but still want to improve their video quality. This is a 1080p HD webcam that can capture footage at 60 FPS, with an integrated Sony Starvis CMOS sensor.
Elgato created Facecam to provide creators with a camera that can perform in a variety of lighting conditions while being more adjustable and performing at higher quality than other webcams on the market. While the $200 price tag matches the high prices the company tends to operate with, it doesn’t have a microphone, according to The Verge, which means it won’t be an option for everyone.
Next, Elgato also announced that it was expanding its Wave Link software which was previously only available when using the company’s Wave microphones.
Wave XLR is a new audio interface that lets creators use their own XLR microphones and provides them with Wave’s quiet capacitive mute button and multi-functional control dial, all in a box the same size as a Stream Deck for $159.99.
Expanding further on Wave audio gear and accessories, the Wave Mic Arm and Wave Mic Arm LP will give creators another option to choose from when looking for a boom arm. Both mic arms prominently feature hidden cable channels with removable covers and cost $99.99 each, depending on whether you want a traditional or all-metal frame with slightly different designs.
The last big reveal was a new version of the Stream Deck which focuses on adding detachable faceplates to give users even more customization options. It also added small updates, like a new fixed-angle desk stand and detachable USB-C cable for the same price as the original Stream Deck at $149.99.
Elgato also announced new mounts, including a wall mount, a Light Strip extension, and a digital studio setup tool that lets users design their dream setups right from their browser. You can learn more about the products on the official Elgato website.
