Razer Announces New Products Focused On Live Streaming

At TwitchCon 2015, a convention run by popular video game streaming service Twitch, hardware developer Razer announced a new game capture card and a desktop camera, targeted at live streamers, or gameplay commentators. Both have yet to be given official names.

Project Sheena is the game capture card. It will be able to capture 1080p video at 60 frames per second, transmitting game data over USB 3.0. Razer says this will remove latency when moving data to your streaming software. Project Sheena will be compatible with Open Broadcaster Software and other similar software. The game capture card will be available in early 2016.

Project Winona is the desktop camera, which Razer revealed last month. It is a PC and VR-enabled camera powered by Intel RealSense technology. The camera will be able to automatically remove the background around the streamer without the use of a green screen. The device will also feature gesture recognition and 3D face mapping. Project Winona will also be available in early 2016.

Are you a live streamer or gameplay commentator? We’d love to know what you think of the new hardware. Feel free to leave your thoughts below.
