Lights, Camera, Action: Logitech Introduces All-New Solutions for Streamers
If you ask kids today what they want to be when they grow up, there’s a good chance it involves being a YouTube star. One-third of kids said they wanted to be YouTubers and vloggers, and recent reports estimate the streaming market will top 124 billion by 2025. But while just about everyone wants to be Internet-famous, getting started can be overwhelming and expensive.
At Logitech, we want to help aspiring creators take control by removing the guesswork when creating a professional streaming setup. Both Logitech and Blue have introduced new gear and bundles specifically designed to help streamers and creators take their content to the next level.
Logitech StreamCam® + Capture – A Winning Combination
Logitech StreamCam is a new webcam designed for today’s creators, making it easier than ever for people to share their passions with the world. StreamCam features 1080p/60 fps video, USB-C connectivity, and flexible mounting options. And when used with Logitech Capture software, StreamCam is even more powerful. Logitech Capture unlocks features on StreamCam to automate exposure, framing, and stabilization, so creators can focus on making their best content.
StreamCam and Logitech Capture are ideal for streaming on YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Instagram, and more. Together, they offer features such as facial recognition smart focus and exposure so you look great in every video; AI-enabled smart framing so you always remain in view; image stabilization to deliver smooth video; full HD vertical video perfect for viewing Instagram and Facebook stories on your mobile device; and customizable stereo and mono recording settings. StreamCam is also optimized for streaming with XSplit and Open Broadcaster Software OBS.
Logitech StreamCam, which comes in either a white or graphite finish, will be available starting today on Logitech.com and other retailer sites in the U.S., France, Germany, UK, Spain and Italy for a suggested retail price of $169.99 and €159. Global availability is expected in early 2020.
An updated version of Logitech Capture will also be released for existing users, with added support for a beta version on macOS. The new version will include capabilities such as Dark Mode, updated transitions and filters, text overlays, and more. Capture is available at Logitech.com as a free software download.
