Today, Razer is expanding its webcam line-up with the new Razer Kiyo Pro. The Kiyo Pro combines a high performance adaptive light sensor, a CMOS sensor and STARVIS technology in an effort to deliver “professional level” image quality for video calls and streaming.
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 will have a consistently bright, clear image under a range of lighting conditions.
The Kiyo Pro is capable of capturing uncompressed 1080p images at 60 frames per second. There is also a HDR mode, but that is limited to 30 frames per second. The wide-angle lens on the Kiyo Pro also provides users with three fields of view to choose from – 103°, 90° or 80°. There are also flexible mounting options, so you can mount it directly to a monitor, a tripod or set it up on top of a desk on its own. In terms of microphone, the Kiyo Pro packs a 16-bit omni-directional stereo microphone, making it suitable for capturing single-users or groups.
