Elgato Stream Deck Revealed, New Device Aims to Enhance Live Streaming
Following yesterday’s tease of Elgato Gaming’s “#Evolve” project, the company has now revealed all with a trailer. The “Elgato Stream Deck” is designed to evolve live streaming with the aid of a multi-functional keypad. For any gamer who’s serious about streaming, this new tech looks to be worth checking out.
The official feature list details everything the Elgato Stream Deck can do:
Break boundaries – You’re creating quality content backed by the best tech on the planet. But you want to do more. With Stream Deck, unleash your creative genius and make waves across Twitch and YouTube. All while focusing on what matters most: your audience.
Take control – 15 LCD keys poised to launch up to 210 actions eliminate the need to map and memorize keyboard shortcuts. One-touch, tactile operation lets you switch scenes, launch media, adjust audio and more, while visual feedback confirms your every command. Traditionally this level of control was exclusive to mainstream entertainment broadcasters. Now, it’s at your fingertips.
Streamline your setup – Elgato Game Capture, OBS, Twitch, Twitter, TipeeeStream and more – Stream Deck integrates your tools and automatically detects your scenes, media, and audio sources, enabling you to control them with a quick tap of a key.
Be proactive – Automated alerts make life easier. But between thanking donors and welcoming new subscribers there’s ample opportunity for self-expression. Employ Stream Deck to level up your onscreen antics with GIFs, images, videos, and audio clips. While you’re at it, apply lower thirds and bookend your content with signature intro and outro graphics. Your options are endless, so explore and experiment. Do what you must to sharpen your creative edge, and do it with a personal touch.
Make it yours – Customizing Stream deck is effortless. Simply drag and drop actions onto keys, and you’re good to go. Likewise, drag and hold one key over another to create a folder. Better yet, assign your keys custom icons to make them completely your own.
Bring it on – Gone are the days of navigating myriad windows to trigger an action, and relying solely on automated plugins to expand your production value. Now, you hold the power to pioneer a new era of content creation, and lead your audience to uncharted frontiers of inspiration. Now, you’re in control.
The device is set to release on May 15, 2017, priced at $149.95. It is available to pre-order now.
