Razer Announces Their Most Advanced Webcam

Razer are once again at CES, they do love the show and for good reason, it is where they debut all their latest products, this time they have unveiled the Stargazer, their most powerful webcam ever.

The Razer Stargazer revolutionizes webcam use as the first device of its kind suitable for quality streaming content production. It sets a new benchmark for video capture at 60 frames per second at 720p, a magnitude better than the 30 frames-per-second limit of common webcams, and it can provide high-definition 1080p video at 30 frames per second. The Razer Stargazer also includes an automatic noise-cancelling, dual-array mic.

Powered by the Intel® RealSense™ SR300 camera, the Razer Stargazer is also enabled with next-generation features that push the boundaries on what a consumer-grade webcam is capable of right out of the box. What this means for you though, is if you are running Windows 10, you can use Windows Hello to unlock your computer, no more passwords, pins or any such nonsense, the camera will see it is you and you are in.

Razer Stargazer’s Dynamic Background Removal capability eliminates the need for full-scale green screen setups traditionally used by streamers. The webcam’s Intel RealSense Technology enables the camera to intelligently sense depth to separate foreground from background. This feature works with popular broadcasting software like OBS, XSplit and Razer Cortex: Gamecaster.

“Webcams have not had any real innovation in several years, beyond resolution quality,” says Razer CEO and co-founder Min-Liang Tan. “There are exponentially more people streaming and video conferencing than ever before and their needs are constantly evolving. The Razer Stargazer can revolutionize work done by game streamers, YouTube personalities, 3D designers and game developers with additional benefits to the average computer user. Simply stated, this is the webcam of the future.”

The Razer Stargazer is set for release in Q2 of this year and has a price of $199.99 USD, no local pricing has been confirmed at this stage, but I would put it around $280 AUD.
