With working from home now being a large part of professional life, the demand for better image quality on video calls is greater than ever. Built-in laptop cameras lack the resolution and framerates for professional-looking conference calls and most webcams struggle to cope with less-than-ideal lighting, giving a dim, blurry video image which can impact a professional presentation. The Kiyo Pro solves these issues with a high-performance Adaptive Light Sensor, providing superior imaging under almost any lighting conditions.
Advanced Imaging. Absolute Fidelity
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 conference calls will have a consistently bright, clear image, even under a wide variety of typical work-from-home lighting conditions such as dim rooms, harsh lighting, backlighting or just screen lighting.
The Kiyo Pro is capable of uncompressed full HD 1080p 60FPS, for unsurpassed image fidelity and detail. The HDR 30FPS mode ramps up the dynamic range, correcting under or over-exposed areas on the fly, eliminating silhouetting if the subject is lit from behind, for vibrant colours and even lighting, across the whole image.
The wide-angle lens on the Kiyo Pro gives a choice of three fields of view: 103°, 90° or 80°, making it ideal for video conferencing or streaming. The 103° view is wide enough to include everyone in a group video call or allow stream viewers to clearly see live activities, while the 80° view is perfect for a professional headshot view or an engaging facecam window on gaming streams.
Flexible and Fast
The Kiyo Pro has a range of extra features to adapt to any set-up and situation. With flexible mounting options for monitor, tabletop or tripod mounting, the Kiyo Pro can be positioned perfectly for use as a streaming camera regardless of the space available. The wide field of view and tripod mounting make the Kiyo Pro ideal for group conference calls, and its 16bit, omnidirectional stereo microphone array ensures all participants’ voices are picked up.
For maximum uncompressed video performance, the Kiyo Pro utilizes a USB 3.0 connection to pass a 5GB/s signal. A separate privacy cover is included to both protect the lens and assure user privacy when not in use.
Pricing And Availability
Razer Kiyo Pro will be retailing at US $ 199.99 on Razer's website from February 23rd, 2021, and other authorized retailers around Q1, 2021.
