CES 2023 | Razer unveils a 4K webcam and a soundbar with AI head tracking
Razer has announced a new streaming focussed webcam and a high-end soundbar alongside the new Razer Blade 18 gaming laptop. As is the case with most Razer products the Razer Leviathan V2 Pro and Razer Kiya Pro ultra are chock full of features and cost a pretty penny. The former retails at US$400/EUR 490 and will hit shelves in February 2023, while the latter costs US$299/EUR 299 and can be bought immediately.
Razer Leviathan V2 Pro
The Razer Leviathan V2 Pro is a successor to the Leviathan V2 launched earlier this year. It keeps the original design but adds some new QoL features such as beamforming tech and AI head tracking. An integrated IR camera tracks the user's position and adjusts the sound accordingly. It supports Razer's TX Spatial Audio, allowing for an even more immersive home theatre experience. The Leviathan V2 Pro is also compatible with Razer Chroma and works seamlessly with other Razer peripherals.
Razer Kiya Pro Ultra
Razer claims the Kiya Pro Ultra (successor to the Razer Kiya Pro) delivers "DSLR-like" quality thanks to its Sony 1/1.2-inch Starvis 2 sensor. It has a pixel size of 2.9 micrometres and an aperture of f/1.7. One can record raw 4K 30 fps footage into commonly used live streaming formats such as 4K 24 FPS, 1440p 30 FPS or 1080P 60 FPS. HDR content is restricted to 30 FPS. Lastly, the Razer Kiya Pro Ultra leverages the power of AI to keep the camera focused on the user's face. Tech-savvy users can fine-tune the camera's ISO, shutter speed and more via Razer Chroma.
