The manufacturer Elgato is one of the most popular brands, especially for streamers. Their computer accessories increase the quality of the broadcast and make it easier to set up the necessary software. It is precisely these features that the four presented products share.
Let’s start with a brand new product. This is the Elgato Facecam webcam, which can capture images up to 1080p at 60 frames per second. The sensor from Sony has an aperture of f / 2.4 and the field of view is a decent 82 °. The camera can record and transmit an image in YUV format, for example. Elgato boasts improved image processing, which should lack disturbing artifacts compared to the competition.
Weighing less than 100 grams, the webcam has a thread on the bottom for mounting on a tripod. Of course, the package also includes a mechanism for attachment to the edge of the monitor. The connection is taken care of by a detachable USB-C cable with a USB-A 3.0 connector on the computer side. The price was set at 200 euros.
In addition to video, streamers also rely on sound quality. For them, Elgato releases Wave XLR, a simple mixing panel for XLR microphone and sound. The back of this small device holds a microphone through the XLR interface, headphones with a 3.5 mm jack and USB-C provides power. The upper part hides the touch button to mute the microphone. The dominant feature, however, is the front part with a rotary knob, which you use to regulate the gain of the input signal (up to 75 dB), the volume of the output and its overlap.
The Wave XLR has a Clipguard function that regulates sounds that are too loud. Furthermore, filters that reduce low frequencies and ambient noise. Everything can be set in the Wave Link application for Windows and Mac. The price was set at 170 euros.
As for the microphones, he has them Elgato on offer enough. A novelty, however, is the Wave Mic Arm in the classic and Low Profile variants. Up to a kilogram microphone can be fitted in the classic version, the Low Profile can withstand even a 2 kg load.
Elgato will ask for 100 euros for the arms for microphones.
The latest news is a new version of Stream Deck. This device works as a panel with macros, while Elgato placed great emphasis on integration with OBS and other programs used by streamers. However, the panel can also be used for other computer work.
The second generation of Stream Deck mainly offers a different stand and a USB-C interface. Over time, the front panel can also be modified according to the various looks offered. The same goes for the Wave XLR. The second-generation Stream Deck with fifteen buttons costs 150 euros and you pay an additional 10 euros for the modified cover.
