LONDON — Aug. 22, 2017 — Today Logitech announced Logitech® BRIO 4K STREAM EDITION. This new Ultra HD 4K camera allows you to create impactful live streams for gaming and broadcasting, capturing the smallest details of your facial features and life-like video in HD 1080p video at 60 frames per second (fps).
“Broadcasting has become a social phenomenon - Players spend twice the amount of time watching versus playing and live streams on Twitch™, Youtube
® and Mixer are becoming the new TV for a generation,” said Guillaume Bourelly, senior portfolio and product manager of webcams at Logitech. “With BRIO 4K STREAM EDITION, we’ve optimized our popular BRIO camera for streaming. The result is a webcam that has everything a pro broadcaster could want to better engage with their audience: On top of capturing live all details in 4K, the frame rate priority mode enables 1080p/60fps stream with constant frame rate and a complete integrated solution with XSplit Broadcaster.”
With Ultra HD 4K and a high dynamic range (HDR), the BRIO 4K STREAM EDITION provides four times the resolution of a full HD video and automatically adjusts to changes in brightness, so you won’t look dark when backlit or when moving from outside to inside. Ultra HD 4K also captures the smallest details of your facial expressions in vivid and accurate colors, and maintains full HD quality as you zoom in or out, so your audience can connect with your broadcasts regardless of the background lighting.
The Logitech BRIO 4K STREAM EDITION produces life-like video with a hyper-fast frame rate at 1080p/60fps when using frame rate priority mode. This reduces lag or delay when creating dramatic slow-motion recordings or replays. The camera also includes ChromaCam, an AI background neutralizer app by Personify that can blur, remove or replace clutter for a professional-looking image wherever you stream. Customize the angle to a more narrow 65 or 78-degree field so the focus can be on you, the star of the stream, or go a wider 90° field-of-view so viewers can enjoy the full scene.
Working closely with the leading gaming broadcast software company SplitmediaLabs, XSplitTM Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster have been optimized for an all-in-one streaming solution to deliver 4K compatibility and a high frame rate with Logitech BRIO 4K STREAM EDITION. Every camera is also bundled with a free 12-month premium XSplit license, which includes XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster apps. In addition, OBS™ is supporting the Logitech BRIO STREAM so you can start streaming right out of the box.
