Elgato Gaming today announced the release of Stream Deck, a professional-studio-grade controller that allows content creators to better manage their live broadcasts. Stream Deck is the first affordable solution that enables creators to elevate the production value of their broadcasts without having to take focus away from audience engagement and quality of the stream. Instead of having to manually alt+tab out of their game or set up a complicated chain of hotkeys, creators can easily switch scenes, launch media, send tweets, control chat, and configure up to 210 actions using Stream Deck’s simple 15 LCD key setup. The device is now available online at Elgato and Amazon for an MSRP of $149.95.
“Elgato Gaming was built to address the needs of content creators, and the demand for seamless live content control has never been higher,” said Julian Fest, General Manager at Elgato Gaming. “Replacing messy, makeshift setups, Stream Deck allows content creators to focus on creating high quality content, and ultimately, engaging with their audience.”
Stream Deck’s key features:
- Physical and visual feedback: LCD keys indicate status of an action once complete, even in low light
- Unlimited customization: choose from hundreds of professionally-created icons or customize and upload your own key icons and layouts
- Native integrations: choose from a growing number of popular integrations – control Game Capture, OBS, TipeeeStream, Twitch, Twitter and more
- Simple drag and drop setup: Easily drag and drop actions onto keys in the app; create folders of actions by dragging one action onto another
